Limited Scope Representation for Family Law Legal Services

Maybe you just need a document drafted, or you are on a tight budget. If so, then limited scope representation may be a good option for you.

What Is Limited Scope Representation?

Limited scope representation (also known as “unbundling” or “limited services”) is when a client and their attorney agree to a specific set of services the attorney will provide. This arrangement differs from traditional representation, where an attorney handles all aspects of a case from start to finish.
