“I got a job within a month after completing my paralegal course.  This is like a dream come true for a new immigrant like me and I am overwhelmed with joy and gratitude.  I am about to complete a year in the USA and this has been a wonderful journey so far and I am looking forward for working harder to learn more and get established.  This would never have been possible without your support and guidance.” – Farhana I.

“As a man making a career change late in life, choosing the right Paralegal school was a very different process. PDI-UNT exceeded all of my expectations. The instructors were extraordinary. The staff is top-notch. It was challenging, but I learned more in 8 weeks than I learned in years of college courses. I would pay twice what I did if I had to do it again. It was well worth the money. Thank you PDI.” -Dennis R.
