Unbundled Legal Services
At the Law office of Kelly Peterson, we offer not only traditional full-service legal services, but also unbundled or “limited scope” legal services.. With “unbundled” services, you decide what you need help with the most.
What is Unbundled Legal Services?
Unbundling allows us to break up the tasks that are part of legal matter and provide representation to portions of the clients needs. We provide unbundled legal services for a number of areas including such things as:
- Legal research
- Document review
- Drafting legal documents and arguments
- Attending Mediation with a client
- Providing step-by-step legal guidance
- Providing single-issue legal advice
- Making limited appearances in court (e.g., representing a client at a single hearing)
- Providing sample forms and pleadings
The most important element of unbundling legal services is client education. Our clients are clearly educated on what our representation will include so they understand their responsibilities in their particular case, and the portions of their case in which they will be assisted by our team. ”Limited scope” or “unbundled” services are not for everyone. Circumstances may require more than limited-scope representation and individuals may need full legal services.
Typically, we make the decision for unbundling on a case-by-case basis.
Why Consider Unbundled Legal Services?
Many people are concerned about the cost of hiring a lawyer just to fill out information to create an LLC. Unbundling legal services can assist in reducing the overall cost of legal services, allowing clients to only pay for the services they know they need.
Following the best practices for unbundling can be an ideal way to reduce cost, increase efficiency, and provides clients with the flexibility they need in an ever-changing legal marketplace.
