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.

The World Health Organization has declared COVID-19 a pandemic. Moreover, the City of Houston and the CDC have recommended that private companies and organizations be proactive to "flatten the curve" of this worldwide epidemic. While our monthly CLE luncheons have been temporarily cancelled, we are excited to begin hosting live CLE webinars, along with a new series of skill-based CLE workshops!
