Limited Scope Representation

“Unbundling” legal services means separating out the various tasks required in a legal case and “limiting” attorney involvement to certain specific tasks while the client handles other matters that an attorney would typically handle in a full-service representation agreement. Nebraska courts approved such arrangements in 2009. For example, a client may utilize forms available through the Nebraska Supreme Court web site to file their divorce (or “dissolution of marriage”) on their own and hire an attorney at GordenLaw to assist with the property settlement agreement and proposed decree, or only to attend the final hearing; or any combination of other tasks.

Note: Unbundled legal services and self-representation is not for everyone and is not appropriate for high-conflict cases or cases where there is a difference in the power relationship between the people involved.
