"I liked Empire’s accelerated classes that let me learn at a quick pace and kept me interested. I liked the family atmosphere, the feeling that the administration and teachers cared about my being there. I liked that the legal teachers actually work in the legal community and are dedicated to updating their knowledge so that students are taught the most up-to-date changes in the law."
- Wendy Cromwell, Paralegal/Law Office Administrator (with daughters Katie and Megan, also Empire paralegal graduates)
