Limited Scope Legal Representation, means hiring an attorney to help you during only a part of your case. Getting unbundled legal services is like going to a restaurant and ordering “á la carte” — picking and choosing exactly what you want and not getting what you don’t want. Picking and choosing what legal services you actually need help with can help you minimize your attorney fee costs.
