What Is Limited Scope Representation?

You may also hear this referred to as Unbundled Services. In a limited scope representation (LSR) arrangement, the client hires an attorney to perform specific services in a legal matter with the understanding that the client will be responsible for carrying out certain tasks on their own. Generally speaking, an LSR attorney will draft documents to be used in a legal matter, but it is up to the client to file the documents and represent him/herself in court. An LSR attorney also provides court coaching by helping clients prepare a strategy and testimony for their court appearance.

There are many useful situations where limited scope representation is appropriate and cost effective. Some of the ways we help clients include:

  • Drafting divorce documents and providing filing instructions and a script for the final court hearing.
  • Assisting with the mediation or negotiation process in your divorce or business matter so that an agreement can be reached.
  • Drafting prenuptial agreements to protect each spouse’s asses in the event of a divorce.
  • Drafting estate planning documents with instructions on how to sign your documents in accordance with Texas law.
  • Contract review to identify any issues and ensure the contract reflects the scope of your agreement.
  • Contract drafting to memorialize any agreements between you and your vendors, employees, or business partners.

It is important to note that limited scope representation may not be appropriate for every situation. Feel free to give my office a call so we can discuss your needs and determine the best course of action for your legal matter.

About eLegal Cafe

Thank you for visiting eLegal Cafe, an online community resource center where you can get assistance with some of your pressing legal matters. You won’t find a stuffy law office with high prices and inconvenient hours. Through this virtual law office you can get assistance when and where it’s convenient for you.
Not everyone can afford to drop thousands of dollars on a retainer just to have someone get started on their case. But not being able to afford expensive representation doesn’t make your case go away, and shouldn’t stop you from having effective assistance of counsel. Whatever brought you to my office is likely the most important, and most traumatic, experience of your life. You don’t have to go through it alone.

Unlike a forms company that sells you mass-produced documents and sends you on your way; here you will receive guidance and advice from a licensed Texas attorney. I listen to your needs, advise you on ways to best protect your rights and interests, and provide you with customized documents for your legal matter.

After our initial consultation, an account is created for you in a client portal where you will have your own unique password and 24 hour access. Messages and documents can be exchanged in a secure, encrypted environment so your information remains protected. Once I receive your questionnaire, signed contract, and fee payment, I begin drafting your customized documents. I provide instructions on how to properly sign and file your documents, as well as coach you on the court process so you know what to expect and what to say during your hearing. It’s that simple.

I am committed to meeting my client’s needs by providing efficient and affordable legal care. Call 817-789-8949 to schedule a free consultation. Phone lines are answered 24 hours a day. We’re here to help.
