Unbundled legal services

Traditional legal representation typically involves representing a client from the start of a legal matter through its resolution. Depending on the circumstances, this may or may not best serve the client's needs. If a client seeks to lower legal costs or desires to have more control over his or her legal matter, retaining a lawyer for unbundled legal services may be a preferred option. Some specific unbundled legal services provided include:

  • reviewing decision-making options
  • providing legal advice in a specific matter without full representation
  • providing legal research on a specific topic
  • drafting legal documents
  • drafting legal agreements that have been arrived at through mediation or through independent discussions between parties
  • reviewing mediated agreements drafted by either a mediator or an attorney
  • assisting a client while he or she participates in mediation
  • negotiating and/or evaluating a settlement
  • coaching while client represents himself or herself

When hired to perform a specific, unbundled legal task, I work with clients to determine their specific needs, develop an affordable fee structure and clearly allocate between us responsibilities for getting the job done. It is a client-centered approach to providing representation that is limited in scope, but not limited in quality.
