Limited Scope Representation

Limited scope representation, also called unbundled services, allows clients the opportunity to use an attorney for a particular part of their case, thereby reducing the fees associated with full blown representation.   A client who is not able to afford an attorney to handle every aspect of his or her case or who wants to continue to represent him/herself, now has the option of seeking quality legal advice for a particular issue or issues.    

We offer limited scope representation in the following areas:
  • Document preparation (response to pleadings, drafting motions or other court documents)
  • Document review and advice
  • Court appearance (hearing)
  • Child Custody Mediation preparation and coaching
  • Court preparation and coaching
Courts approve of limited-scope representation because they want to encourage people to get as much legal assistance as they need to protect their rights. They know that you will do a better job of following proper court procedures and presenting the important information to them if you have the help of a lawyer during the more complicated parts of a case.

If you need help with any area of your family law case, including divorce, child custody/visitation, child support modification, but don't have the money for legal representation for the entire case, or would rather try to navigate the court system yourself with an attorney providing you with solid legal advice, please contact Cabello & Lezin.  We will tailor our services to fit your needs.
