Pay  Only  For The Services You Need

Indiana Limited Scope Representation Attorney

We believe it is in your best interest to be represented by someone who knows Indiana law, but sometimes it just is not possible. You may end up handling your case alone or pro se. For these cases, Locke Law Firm offers Limited Scope Representation to help you.

Limited Scope Representation

Limited Scope Representation is also referred to as “unbundling” or “limited services”, meaning a designated legal service, rather than the full package of traditionally offered services. The scope of services to be provided by a lawyer may be limited by agreement with the client or by the terms under which the lawyer’s services are made available to the client.

Limited Scope Representation means that you and your attorney agree that you will perform some of the tasks associated with your case, and the attorney will perform others. For example, you and your attorney may agree that you will gather all of the case records needed for your case, and your attorney will draft your petition. Once the petition is drafted, you will be responsible for filing the petition yourself and attending any hearings scheduled in your matter. Even if you decide that you do not want to pay for your attorney’s attendance at your hearing, you may still find it beneficial to have your attorney help you prepare for the hearing.

Pay for only the services you need

Limited Scope Representation may allow you to obtain the assistance of an attorney when you have questions, while still keeping your legal expenses affordable. You can get help with parts of your case that are too difficult to handle. You may not have enough money to hire an attorney to handle your entire case. You can hire an attorney for the most difficult parts of your case and limit he amount of money you must pay.
Law is complicated

By using Limited Scope Representation, you save money, and get help from a lawyer which you might otherwise not be able to afford. However, you should understand that the law is complicated. If you decide to limit your attorney’s part in your case, you will be responsible for the results in the part of the case you do for yourself. There may be hidden complications in your case that you are not aware of because you do not have legal education and experience. You must carefully discuss your case with your attorney and make sure that you are capable of handing the part of the case you decide to handle yourself.
