Innovative Legal Solutions to Increase Access to Legal Services
Every case is different, but there are options that may work for you other than the traditional hourly retainer. The unfortunate reality is that every day people end up representing themselves in critical legal matters without any legal assistance whatsoever. Traditional Litigation process is not the only option when it comes to your family law issue. Crimins Law is trying to help increase access to legal services through our use of mediation, self-help (pro se) clinics, unbundled and limited scope agreements.
Limited scope representation, also referred to as “unbundled services” offers the à la carte menu of legal services. Time and expense can be saved by the limited scope representation approach. In unbundling of legal service, the lawyer and client work together to allocate the division of tasks.
