This post is written to conclude and recap my series on the possibility of utilizing an unbundled lawyer for Las Vegas, Nevada family law cases. I decided to write on this issue due to the fact that many individuals find themselves in need of legal assistance but cannot afford an attorney from beginning to end. While important, quality representation can be prohibitively expensive. The goal of my last several articles has been to provide information which will assist people in better understanding their options. It has also been my goal to provide information which will assist in the selection of counsel. If you or a loved one are in need of assistance then contact me today to schedule an initial consultation.
I have addressed several subjects over my recent articles. Issues which I have analyzed include:
- Why Las Vegas parents may retain an unbundled lawyer
- Ways in which an unbundled lawyer can be of assistance
- Retaining unbundled counsel for one hearing
- Retaining an unbundled attorney to write a Motion
- Using unbundled representation for trial
There are multiple reasons why I chose to address these issues. First, it is common for parents to file pro se pleadings and for them to need assistance in Court. Retaining a lawyer can help to ensure that your Motion or Opposition is properly presented to the Judge. Second, there are several aspects of a case in which a limited scope attorney can be of assistance. Third, having an attorney for a single hearing means that they will be your representative until the final Order is signed. Fourth, it is also possible to have an attorney write a Motion and argue it on your behalf. Finally, if you do not present a case properly at trial then the Court may not be able to consider vital evidence.
One point that I stressed in each of these articles is that retaining limited scope representation can greatly assist you in a family law matter. While it is more common for individuals to represent themselves in Family Court. This, however, does not change the fact that the rules of procedure must be followed and that the Court may not make exceptions simply because one side is unrepresented. By retaining an unbundled lawyer, you help to ensure that your case is handled properly. If you are in need of assistance then contact me today to speak with a Las Vegas family law attorney.
