In the inevitable frenzy leading up to and during trial, paralegals play many important roles—chief among them a critical source of calm in the chaos. It’s a role Yarborough Applegate’s Caitlin Clancy knows well, and one she explores in the latest issue of ParalegalVoice, AIEG’s quarterly paralegal magazine.
In “Finding Calm in the Chaos,” she shares best practices for remaining calm and confident throughout trial preparation and trial. Each insight is rooted in her own experience. On the list is cultivating relationships with the client(s), expert witnesses, and other witnesses, which pays off in spades when juggling witness schedules at trial, she says. But most important, she notes, is always remembering to prioritize your own mental health.
Clancy is a litigation paralegal who focuses mainly on catastrophic personal injury cases, medical malpractice, dram shop litigation, and wrongful death claims. She brings passion and precision to her cases, and seizes opportunities to contribute to conversations around mental health in the legal profession.

We’re grateful that ours includes a strong, talented group of paralegal professionals who bring vital support—and measure of calm—to every single case.
