Unbundled Legal Services FAQ
Unbundled or limited legal services means that you hire a lawyer to do specific tasks. Generally, these do not include going to court. Some of the legal tasks that could be involved in unbundled legal services are:
review decision-making options
provide legal advice
do legal research
negotiate a settlement
review mediated agreement
review correspondence and court documents
coach client while client represents himself or herself
back-up and trouble-shooting during litigation
provide guidance and procedural information for filing court documents
evaluate settlement options

It is "à la carte" legal services. By contrast, in "traditional representation," you hire a lawyer to do whatever legal services he/she thinks are appropriate for your situation.
A. Using unbundled legal services, the lawyer and client agree what specific legal services the lawyer will provide. It is buying legal services "à la carte" depending on need. The specific services are listed in a written agreement that also describes the fees to be paid.
With traditional service, the lawyer provides comprehensive services to deal with the client's problem.
The retainer or deposit for unbundled legal services is much less than for traditional representation. The total fees are less, as the lawyer is not required to spend time on legal work that is not essential to the case.
"Limited representation" is unbundled services for a court hearing. That is, under a "limited representation," the lawyer agrees to go to represent a client for a single court hearing. In traditional representation for litigation, the lawyer is hired to handle all court hearings (and all court paperwork) for the cases.
