Houston Metropolitan Paralegal Association
Welcome to Houston Metropolitan Paralegal Association ("HMPA")! HMPA is a non-profit organization, and is one of the largest paralegal associations in the United States. Founded on August 30, 1978, the HMPA formally changed its name in 2004 from Houston Legal Assistants Association. HMPA's goal, then and now, is to promote the professional advancement of paralegals in the Houston metropolitan area. As a non-partisan, non-bargaining association, HMPA strives for a heightened standard of excellence in the profession through the implementation of minimum education standards for its members and the creation of the advanced Professional Houston Paralegal designation. Although HMPA is not a regulatory board, our goal is to remain on the forefront of regulation, certificate, and licensure issues facing the profession during the coming years.
