LIMITED SCOPE REPRESENTATION


“Unbundled” or Limited Scope Representation provides the client with the greatest level of control over the dissolution process and related costs.  The most affordable form of legal assistance, à la carte services allow a self-represented (“Pro Se”) party to hire an attorney on a limited basis to handle only those issues specifically designated by the client. 


Limited Scope Representation falls into three general categories:


  1. 1.Advice and consultation,

  2. 2.Document preparation and/or filing,

  3. 3.Limited representation in court


Within these categories we offer the following services:


  1. Legal advice and guidance,

  2. Office visits, telephone calls, fax, mail, e-mail, scanning documents

  3. Advice about non-adversarial means to resolving the dispute, including Collaborative Divorce, Mediation, and Arbitration.

  4. Evaluation of clients’ case and advising client about legal rights and collaborative           strategies.

  5. Guidance and procedural information for filing documents.

  6. Reviewing and editing correspondence and court documents.

  7. Preparing and/or suggesting documents to be prepared.

  8. Legal research and analysis.

  9. Guidance in negotiation strategies and goals.

  10. Client referrals to other counsel and to other experts.

  11. Provide preventive planning and/or schedule legal check-ups.

  12. Other services as needed by the client.


Limitations


The self-represented client maintains full control of and responsibility for performing those services not contracted out to the attorney.  Because the attorney is not authorized to perform any functions or services beyond those specifically designated by the client, if the client makes ineffective or self-destructive decisions or actions in handling a task for which the attorney is not responsible, the attorney is absolved from blame and the client is barred from taking legal action against the attorney.
