Unbundled Legal Services

Traditionally, clients approached an attorney about a specific situation and the client retained the attorney’s services. The client deposits an amount of money into the Attorney’s trust account and as the lawyer works on the client’s case, the attorney withdraws money from the trust for payment.

If you have a legal matter but are turned off by the traditional approach, or you wish to save on fees involved, limited or “unbundled legal services” may be for you. “Unbundled legal services” is an alternative to the traditional way of billing and providing services. Unbundled services allows the client to hire the attorney for specific tasks. The client only pays for the tasks they have asked for at a flat fee. This alternative way of providing services has many benefits. First, it allows clients to know their costs up front. Second, unbundling allows more clients access to legal solutions. However, not all situations are appropriate for “unbundled legal services”.

For example in a divorce, we can help prepare documents and provide advice, but you can appear in court on your own. Or, another example, you may have already prepared a will using self-help books or an on-line service, but wish to have the document reviewed to be sure it is in line with state law.

“Unbundled Legal Services” are similar to an a la carte menu at a restaurant. Some potential clients are looking for individual services or guidance in one aspect of their situation. Unbundled services allow clients to engage in only those services that they need.

“Unbundled Legal Services” encompasses many things from document creation or document review to preparing individuals to represent themselves in courts. Our unbundled services can include filing motions, conducting discovery, or participating in negotiations with the client.
