Certification Question

by Nancy
(Roanoke, VA )

Hello,

I have my Paralegal Certificate and an Associate in Applied Science. I worked as an LDA in California for a couple of years, around 2005-2007 I believe. I have been out of the profession for a long time as when I moved home to VA it is not legal (or wasn't then) to work independently as in CA. So, I work for an insurance company. I kept up my CLE for a few years but then stopped. My kids are grown almost so thinking of getting back into the profession in FL. Can I and what would it take exactly?


I really miss the work.


Thanks for your time!
Nancy Brammer
