History
We founded Southwest Florida Paralegal Association, Inc., "SWFPA," f/k/a Legal Assistants of Southwest Florida, Inc., "LASF," in 1997.

Our mission is to provide local paralegals with a network of legal resource information, educational information, and information on professional opportunities. Our primary goals are to uphold the high ethical, professional standards set forth by the National Association of Legal Assistants, Inc. (NALA), to increase paralegal awareness by encouraging member participation in community activities, and to offer membership services at a reasonable rate.

We have created a strong local organization, and we are achieving our goals by channeling the energies of our members who work together to provide some needed resources and information to our local paralegals. We have created this site as a resource tool for our members and for any other paralegals who wish to use it.

We hold dinner meetings and an annual seminar to provide continuing legal education and to encourage active participation of our membership.

SWFPA is a local affiliate of NALA, and it has joined other paralegal organizations throughout the State of Florida to form the Florida Alliance of Paralegal Associations, (FAPA).
