Boca Raton Chapter

Chapter President’s Message

The Boca Raton Chapter is comprised of highly motivated and professional paralegals.  The goal of our chapter is to provide continuing legal education and networking opportunities for paralegals in the Boca Raton area.  The current chapter officers are: Michelle Ridge, ACP, FCP; Doris R. Muscarella, FRP, 1st Vice President, Melissa Rivera, CP, FRP, 2nd Vice President, Desiree Yacko, FRP, ACP, CP, Secretary and Immediate Past President; and Samantha Ameno, Treasurer.

The Chapter holds -monthly luncheon seminars at noon on the second Thursday of each month.  January’s luncheon will be held at Pavilion Grill located at 301 Yamato Road, Boca Raton, where paralegals are afforded the ability to continue their educational growth, while obtaining CLE credits towards their Florida Registered Paralegals and/or NALA as Certified Legal Assistants/Certified Paralegals continuing educational requirements.  During the seminars, paralegals also have the opportunity to network with their fellow paralegals and para-professionals located in the Boca Raton area. For information on the seminars for the Boca Raton Chapter of PAF, please contact Gail Lanning, CP at

We hope you will entertain the idea to become a member of this fabulous Chapter and The Paralegal Association of Florida, Inc. too.  Aside from the wealth of knowledge you will definitely attain, you will most assuredly become part of a network of colleagues that will enhance your overall professional life tenfold.
