Paralegal, Albany Widler acquires Certified Paralegal status by the NALA.
Congratulations to one of our Paralegals, Albany Widler, who has recently become a Certified Paralegal by the National Association of Legal Assistants (NALA).
Established in 1976, the Certified Paralegal credential is key to respect and opportunity throughout the legal profession. NALA is the only National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA) accredited paralegal certification program. NALA’s Certified Paralegal credentialing has been acknowledged by the American Bar Association as a mark of high professional achievement, and more than 47 other paralegal organizations and numerous bar associations also acknowledge the Certified Paralegal credential as the paralegal standard.
Albany made the decision to earn her Certified Paralegal designation in her Junior year at Wichita State University after completing her Legal Environment of Business class. It was that class, she says, where she fell in love with the law. Upon completion of her MBA in Business Law at Friends University, Albany applied to sit for the Certified Paralegal examination. The Certified Paralegal examination is a comprehensive assessment based on federal law and procedures. In order to sit for the examination, an applicant must qualify by meeting certain education and professional experience requirements. Earning this credential is a proud achievement, and maintaining the right to use it is a career-long commitment. Certification must be maintained through continuing education relevant to the demands of the paralegal career. The use of the Certified Paralegal credential signifies that a paralegal is capable of providing superior services to firms and corporations, and the clients and customers they served. Congrats, Albany! The Penner Lowe Law Group, LLC is proud of you and your accomplishment.
