At Koontz & Smith, Attorneys at Law, we know that English is not the native tongue of all Americans. We understand that sometimes, legal counsel can get lost in translation (heck, we know even some legal jargon gets lost in translation in English!)
Spanish is the second most prevalent language across the country, and to better serve our community, we have a Spanish-speaking paralegal on our team who can provide translation services to keep communication smooth and efficient.
Why Are Bilingual Law Services Important?
Bilingual law services are important because in addition to clearly communicating in Spanish, having someone fluent in the language that is able to properly translate legal terminology can eliminate unnecessary stress on the non-native speaker. When it comes to filling out legal forms and contracts, having a legal representative who is fluent in Spanish can help make this process that much easier.
Further, a native Spanish speaker can walk away knowing their needs are heard and that they’re getting the right law services they need. Some people think it’s enough to come with a bilingual family member or friend, when seeking law services. The problem that exists in this scenario is that some things are not easily translated, if the person is not familiar with legal terminology and processes – or able to effectively translate the person’s inquiry into English.
