About Me

Welcome! My name is Celia. I’m a Registered Paralegal, which means I have passed NFPA’s national Paralegal Advanced Competency Exam. I have been fortunate to have worked with and known some of the best and brightest attorneys, paralegals, and legal support staff, as well as the Hon. Marian P. Opala, of the Oklahoma Supreme Court, in my home state of Oklahoma and across the United States. I am passionate about paralegal education, my profession, legal research, and legal writing.

I have co-authored a paralegal textbook on legal research and writing and co-authored NFPA’s Study Guide for their national test. I have been a legal writing columnist for Legal Assistant Today, now Paralegal Today. I have done more seminars than I can count. If that kind of thing interests you, here’s my LinkedIn profile: www.linkedin.com/pub/celia-c-elwell-rp/4/21b/4b4/.  In my opinion, I still have much to learn.

I started this as a place for my favorite blogs, websites, references, and tools – the things I use and rely upon most often. I then expanded it to include anything that helped to broaden my skills and knowledge. I cannot speak for you, but this is no fun if I cannot learn something new and find yummy brain candy.

What I post here neither necessarily reflects my opinions nor those of my employer or its clients. It is simply provided because it I thought it was interesting or useful.  Nothing posted here can be relied upon by anyone as legal advice. (Please see the Disclaimer.)
