Denver Divorce Mediation - Ann L. Sussman, Attorney at Law
Increasingly, people are choosing to represent themselves in court. While this saves the cost of attorney fees, people frequently find themselves needing help navigating their way through the legal system.
It is not always easy to understand the legal procedures and or how various laws pertain to the case. Drafting a legal document correctly so that it accomplishes the intended goals can also be difficult.
Unbundled legal services are a means by which clients can limit the scope of the attorney’s assistance to specified tasks. For example, the attorney can be hired as a consultant to help the client understand legal procedures. The attorney can do legal research and draft pleadings for use by the client. Because the attorney’s assistance is limited in scope, the attorney cannot enter an appearance on behalf of the client. This means that the attorney does not appear in court with the client or communicate with opposing counsel.
Because the attorney does not appear in court with the client or communicate with opposing counsel, our attorneys do not provide unbundled legal services in a highly contested matter.
