This is the first post in a series of articles which will discuss why an individual might want to hire an unbundled attorney and the process for doing so. I feel it is important to share this topic because so many people in Las Vegas lack the financial resources to hire counsel to represent them for their entire case. An unbundled attorney is a lawyer that is hired by the client for a specific and limited task. The goal of this series is to provide information as to why an individual might hire an unbundled counsel and to explain how to retain one. If you would like assistance, contact my office today.
I will be addressing a number of topics over the following series of articles. Topics which I will address include:
- Why Las Vegas parents may require unbundled counsel
- How an unbundled lawyer may be of assistance
- Retaining unbundled representation for a single court hearing
- Retaining unbundled representation for motion practice
- Retaining an unbundled representation for trial
It is undeniable that sometimes financial constraints make it impossible to hire a law firm for an entire family court case. Therefore, it is very important for someone, who is seeking representation, to know that this is an option. It is also very important for an individual to know that unbundled counsel will not be involved in the day-to-day management of their case. This type of lawyer will work on a specific and limited task only, thus the client must be prepared to perform their own case management. This means remembering dates and important deadlines, etc. It is also important for parents to understand when they can use unbundled representation. I will discuss all of these points in my upcoming posts.
