For Jamaicans living away from home, there is now a team of legal leg workers to take care of their minor errands back home on the island. Led by journalist Anthea McGibbon, the team offers legal process and private investigative services to professionals locally and internationally. She herself has paralegal training and experience, making her qualified to perform some tasks.
Tasks that are beyond her call are passed on to relevant members of the team.
Catering to professionals such as Attorneys, Title Agencies, Realtors, Medical Facilities, Banks, Corporate Jamaica and members of the General Public, the team works to deliver, process or complete projects quickly and efficiently for those short on time or staff. The team aims to assist the general public especially those living abroad in resolving their problems.
Anthea McGibbon is a well-rounded and multi-skilled journalist and artist, which she believes are both complimentary to the legal world, and fit for a wide variety of clients. Also with paralegal training, her own media website www.antheamcgibbon.com highlights arts, culture, creativity, law and spirituality which in her experience are interlocked in the fabric of life.
She says the team in no way replaces an attorney or any other specialist, but rather compliments and assists in speedier processing.

The time has come for Jamaicans to unite in assisting in solutions to challenges faced by Jamaicans on a whole. The Court system is one place to start as with more persons having a better understanding and grassroot assistance, challenges such as mistrust of attorneys-at-law and backlog can be drastically reduced according to Anthea McGibbon.
