Judy Sanderlin, NPC graduate and paralegal
When I first began NPC, I intended to complete my associate's degree in the hope that I could be promoted within my firm, and then be done with it. At the time, I was my firm's receptionist and didn't know much about the law. It had been years since I was in school, so I was quite nervous and anxious to get it over with. My very first class was taught by DeDe Sandler. DeDe makes class fun and informative, and truly made me feel like my success was all she was after. After class, I felt more comfortable, and to my surprise, all of the professors who teach at NPC are just as amazing. The work at NPC is challenging, engaging, and very relevant to what I needed to do to further my career in the legal field. I eventually received my associate's degree and my promotion within my firm, but NPC made me feel confident enough to want to go further. Why not next pursue by bachelor's degree and then law school? That is precisely what I did! I am currently a litigation paralegal, and I start William S. Boyd School of Law in August of 2020, all thanks to NPC and its excellent staff. NPC was one of the best decisions I have ever made.
Naomi Moskowitz, NPC student
Being a student at NPC has been such an incredible experience for me. There is a wide variety of interesting classes to choose from. The teachers are engaging, approachable and really there for you as needed. When I started at NPC, I was assigned a mentor who helped me acclimate to the school and was such a great resource for me as I got used to doing assignments and taking exams. One of the most important features of NPC, something that has really made my education possible, is the fact that I can take classes on my own timetable. As a full-time working mother of 4 children, the flexibility of the program is something that was vital to me. Getting my bachelor's degree was something that felt like a pipe dream with my hectic and full schedule, but with the recorded classes, easily accessible learning materials, and the ability to log into class from anywhere, I am excelling and almost at the finish line. Thank you, NPC, for bringing my dreams to reality.
Anne-Marie Shaffer, NPC student
Everyone has been amazing to work with at NPC! Someone was always there to walk me through the entire process and to let me know if there was an issue that needed my attention. My professors are wonderful. My mentor has been invaluable. I think every school should be this awesome. I'm already feeling like I will get through this successfully and that I might want to pursue a bachelor's degree.
Marisa Janke, NPC graduate
I really had a wonderful experience with the school… I appreciate your time and careful consideration to the organization of this program. I have endeavored a few different post-high-school / community college schools but this was by far the most competent, accessible, flexible, and attentive experience I have had. I want to personally thank Professor Haas, Professor Rovinsky, and Professor Sandler particularly for being such brilliant leaders and educators.
Beth Evans, NPC graduate and paralegal
NPC paved the way for me to be currently working in a litigation firm in Los Angeles. I can't say enough about how pleased I am with my NPC experience! It prepared me so well for actual paralegal practice.
Nirian Rivera, NPC and NJU graduate
I am proud to say that my dedication and studies at NPC/NJU have helped me accomplish my goals in education. I am currently a student at Northcentral University in the doctoral program in Criminal Justice, specializing in Homeland Security. If it would not have been for my professors, mentors and staff at NPC and NJU (especially Stephen Haas, Esq.), I definitely would have not gotten this far. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart.
Cathy Thrift, NPC graduate and paralegal
I am learning so much… I have also become the closing paralegal for the Department of Transportation for a very large project for them in which our firm is their attorney… I look forward to going to work every morning… If I can ever do anything for NPC, please let me know. NPC provided me with an amazing education and an excitement for law. (DeDe Sandler had a lot to do with that too.) Please share my thanks to all.
Lisa Easter, NPC graduate
I graduated in August of last year and I just wanted to tell you guys thank you so much. I got my associate's and my bachelor's degrees through your program, I'm applying to law school, and I've also been hired on as the law office manager at a firm here in Katy Texas. Thank you, guys!
Melanie Talley, NPC graduate and paralegal
Thank you so much for helping me achieve my goals. NPC provided me the tools to learn and the support to succeed. Thank you for being a college that allowed me to work full time, raise my family, and obtain an invaluable education. My life is forever changed for the better.
Malinda Scott, NPC graduate and paralegal
… I was called back into my boss's office and I was told that I wasn't an office assistant but a paralegal. My boss's exact words were "you are a paralegal." Professor Haas, I finally felt validated for all the hard work I put into my degree from NPC… I am gaining confidence every day and loving my job. (I’ve never loved my job before.) Again, I just wanted to thank you and NPC. Without the education I received, there is no way I would have been offered this opportunity nor would I have had the confidence to even jump into this situation… I even recommend NPC to anyone who mentions to me that they are thinking of becoming a paralegal!!!
Teresa Negron, NPC graduate and NFPA Registered Paralegal®
Hi Stephen; I wanted to update you with the good news… I passed the PACE Exam!… Just wanted to say that even though I took an 8-week review course and purchased a huge textbook to prepare me for my exam, nothing prepared me for the exam like my education at NPC… The rest was garnered from years of experience and my legal education. In fact, I referenced my former class materials from NPC in order to prepare for the test and get me through the coursework. I am now one of 4 federally Registered Paralegals® in Northeast Ohio!
Evelyn Stoner, NPC student and paralegal
I also wanted to tell you that at a recent interview, they commented on NPC being on my resume. She said they've been seeing a lot of graduates from NPC lately, and from what they've been able to tell, it's quite an impressive school.
AuBriana Morency, NPC student
Thank you so much for an awesome class! You helped make my experience at NPC wonderful during these past 6 months. I am considering going after my Associates in Paralegal Studies next year and will definitely contact NPC regarding my options.
NPC graduate Amanda Flatt, paralegal at
Clark & Washington
in Nashville, TN.
I wanted to thank you again for the wonderful experience at NPC. I wanted to let you know that next week, I will be starting my first job as a Paralegal at Clark & Washington bankruptcy law firm! Thank you so much for the wonderful learning experience. I really enjoyed all my professors and learned so much. I will forever be grateful for NPC and all the professors.
Myra Glover, NPC student and paralegal
Thank you for your assistance and support during my courses at NPC. As I am completing my last class this evening in Trust Drafting with you, I wanted to send a note of gratitude…
I have called myself a nontraditional student but after completing the program, I have decided a "nontraditional" descriptive no longer exists in education. Regardless of age and career, we should always be learning and expanding our knowledge. As life gives us changes in our journey, knowledge and enlightenment allow for challenges to be met in a positive environment through education.
Because of the training and education I have received, today I worked on an estate plan for one of our firm's clients and took notes during the
of an upcoming trial of a client. NPC prepared me to assist my attorney with this very different legal areas. As a paralegal, our tasks and responsibilities vary and we must be prepared to assist as needed.
Theresa "Tara" Burnworth, NPC student
National Paralegal College is by far the best education I have received. I love that the courses are online and the flexibility of being able to listen to the class recordings at a later time for review or if I am unable to attend the live online class. The teachers in each class not only give you the information you need they make it fun and entertaining to learn. I achieved my goal of an associate's degree in one year and have decided to continue on to finish my bachelor's program. I look forward to my future classes and my future career as a paralegal.
Sharon Rhea, NPC graduate
I absolutely love NPC! I love that the classes are interactive with very knowledgeable professors. I have to write letters to prosecutors asking for reduction in sentences or dismissals, while the thought of that scared me, I reviewed several of their letters written by paralegals that had many years experience, I immediately recognized that it was IRAC! I knew I could breathe, as I had plenty of knowledge writing IRAC style due to our assignments at NPC. The other thing that I am completely confident in is searching case law. I never thought that I could be where I am today, being in an industry that I truly love and that keeps me captivated, but all thanks to NPC! I can honestly say that I love my job and I highly recommend National Paralegal College to anyone wanting to enter the legal field.
Daniel Flores, NPC student
I wanted to tell you that this has been one of great experience in life and the school is fantastic. I definitely feel like I have learned a lot over the past 20 plus months. You [Dean Stephen Haas] personally have been very helpful as well with any issues that I have had and I want to thank you as well… Thanks again.
Gwendolyn Payton, NJU graduate and first-year law student
Attending NJU was a Godsend. It gave me the legal knowledge, analytical skills and writing skills that will be invaluable in my next few years of law school. I am very blessed to have had this opportunity. I thank you for your expeditious responses. Much success to you and NJU!
The professors are amazing. They are very knowledgeable and willing to help the students. Dean Jeremy, Professor Emily, Professor Glazer, Professor Daniel and Professor Ellis are worth their weight in gold. What a well versed group of instructors. Each of them not only motivated me to learn the subject matter, but through their knowledge, I gained a passion for the subject matter. They all made learning worthwhile. I even started dreaming about cases from Con Law. LOL. Also, your book on Wills and Estates is such an easy read. What an outstanding job an invaluable book to add to that class. It made learning fun. NJU was truly an invaluable learning and life experience for me. Finishing up is bitter sweet for me. It feels great to finish up. However, I am sad to leave such a positive and rewarding learning environment. I will always cherish this opportunity.
Mary Lopez, NPC graduate
I have been accepted into Taft Law School and I could not have done it without National Paralegal College! Thank you!
Myra Glover, NPC student
Working in higher Ed for 22 years in my prior career, NPC has incredible offerings as well as instructors. The online process and website is second to none. The support and ability to communicate is stronger than some residential schools. I am getting my money's worth! Again, thank you.
Radha Patturajan, NPC student
This class (Legal Document Preparation) helped us understand how to draft documents in variety of fields. I was so apprehensive at the beginning as I was completely new to this field. However, our professors put us at ease and helped us gain confidence in drafting the documents so professionally. I am forever indebted to you all. My mentor Connie has also been a strong pillar of support, helping me understand the nuances of this field, since I was a novice… Thank you all at NPC !! You totally rock!! I am looking forward to more studies at NPC!
Quetada Kehrhahn, NPC graduate and paralegal
I'm currently employed with the Housing Authority. My degree has given me a great deal of "kudos," so to speak, with my boss… If it weren't for my degree from NPC, I don't think I'd get as much respect as I do from my boss. I'm glad I get to utilize the legal aspect of life with this job. If it weren't for those contract classes, CFR regulations and real estate law, I don't think I would've been able to catch on to my job the way I have in less than a year.
Debra Neidiffer, NPC graduate and paralegal
I was offered a paralegal position with Schulz Stephenson Law, a family law firm located in Beaufort, NC. I… received the engagement letter offering the position today… I also want to thank you again for helping me accomplish my goal. You guys are amazing!!
