As an attorney, I am always looking for ways to help more clients. Unbundling legal services is one of those ways. Unbundling refers to the practice of breaking legal representation into separate and distinct tasks. Think of unbundling as an a la carte option for legal services, where, instead of handling an entire case from start to finish, a lawyer may handle only certain parts. You can have me do as much or as little as you want consistent with your own personal comfort level to do the work and your budget. Unbundling is also known as “limited scope representation,” “limited scope legal assistance,” “limited assistance representation” and “discrete task representation.” The
terms are often used interchangeably, but all refer to the same practice.
Frequently unbundled legal services include:
- Advising on court procedures and courtroom behavior
- Coaching on strategy or role playing
- Collaborative lawyering
- Conducting legal research
- Document review
- Drafting contracts and agreements
- Drafting pleadings, briefs, declarations, or orders
- Making limited appearances
- Online dispute resolution
- Organizing discovery materials
- Preparing exhibits
- Providing legal guidance or opinions
Clients can benefit from the legal expertise of lawyers, while paying only for those services that they most need. Courts typically see that unbundling clients are often better prepared for court, saving staff time and resources compared to those who represent themselves without the assistance of a lawyer.
If you have any questions about unbundled legal services or full-service representation, then please give me a call to discuss your case as soon as possible. Thank you for choosing Daniel M. Genet, P.A. and I look forward to working with you.
