Kris L. Canaday – Integrative Legal Support, LLC

Practice/Organization Description

Kris L. Canaday, an Advanced Certified Paralegal, established Integrative Legal Support to provide substantive legal support to attorneys, firms, corporations, and governmental agencies across the country in an effort to help them regain a work-life balance, minimize costs, increase their profit margin, and lower their clients’ legal fees. Kris dedicates a significant amount of time to educating attorneys on the use and benefits of paralegals in their practice and the benefits of utilizing paralegal services. Kris is the author of Paralegal Support 101, an informal blog geared toward providing information to attorneys about the paralegal profession and paralegal services. In her spare time, Kris writes guest articles for paralegal associations and requesting publications, serves as a mentor to paralegal job seekers and nontraditional undergraduate students returning to school, and provides pro bono services whenever the opportunity arises.

Prior to establishing Integrative Legal Support, Kris worked in both the public and private sectors and is fortunate to have training and/or experience in several areas of law. Adept in the legal process, Kris is trained in the fundamentals of legal practice and support including legal review and analysis, factual and legal research, document production, document preparation, and drafting. Her natural analytical and organizational skills compliment her work in the legal field.

Coupled with her entrepreneurial spirit and executive level experience, Kris offers much more than legal support to attorneys. Her integral understanding of business allows her to identify problems and offer recommendations for improved business practices, thereby enhancing a firm or business's overall efficiency.

Kris's company currently focuses on providing intellectual property (copyright and trademark) prosecution and maintenance; and corporate, administrative law, and litigation support. Kris is also registered to provide government contract services (DUNS #963901579).
