Lawyers Offering Limited Scope Representation

Limited scope representation (also called “unbundled” representation) is an agreement with a lawyer to get help with part of a legal case, usually for a flat rate. It is different from full representation where a lawyer agrees to handle every part of a legal case; instead the lawyer and client work together to divide up the various tasks in the case and determine who will be responsible for each. Learn more about limited scope representation.

Each of the lawyers listed below offers a variety of fee-based limited scope legal services in either family law matters (including divorce, child support, and custody) or landlord-tenant dispute (including eviction). Talk to a lawyer directly to discuss your case and learn about your options. Limited scope representation is not right for every case or for every client, and there is no guarantee that a lawyer will take your case.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Is Limited Scope Representation?

Limited scope representation (also called “unbundled” or “a la carte” representation) is an agreement with a lawyer to get help with part of a legal case, usually for a flat rate. It is different from full representation where a lawyer agrees to handle every part of a legal case; instead the lawyer and client work together to divide up the various tasks in the case and determine who will be responsible for each.

How Much Does Limited Scope Representation Cost?

You should talk to the lawyer directly to learn more about limited scope representation costs and services. The amount you pay can vary depending on many factors including the types of services provided, how many services are provided, and the lawyer’s experience level. You will only pay the lawyer for the parts of the case that he or she handles.

What Will the Lawyer Do?

You and the lawyer will work together to decide who will be responsible for the different aspects of the legal case. Your lawyer should put this agreement in writing and update it if any changes are made. Make sure you ask your lawyer what tasks you will need to do on your own and decide that you are comfortable completing them independently.
