Limited Scope Representation and Unbundled Legal Services Explained

Traditionally, attorneys are held responsible for all aspects of a client’s legal life, regardless of the matter being handled at the time. Because of this, lawyers have not been willing or able to advise clients on small portions of an ongoing case because of the risk of being held responsible for other parts of the case.

The escalating cost of legal services is pricing many people out of traditional retainer-based legal services and driving them into the courts pro se or in pro per (self representation). This has clogged the courts with faulty paperwork and confused litigants, increasing the time and effort required to finish even a simple case. The problem in Arizona is particularly acute in Family Law.

As a result, the State Bar of Arizona recently approved “Limited Scope Representation” as another way of providing legal services to people who do not want, do not need, or cannot afford full legal representation in the traditional manner. By allowing attorneys to unbundle legal services, it limits the scope of an attorney’s responsibility for a case and creates options for a new kind of working relationship.

With Limited Scope Representation the client-attorney team agree in advance which issues will be handled by whom. The client can then purchase as much or as little legal advice as they want and pay for the services when they are provided. Flat fees are also available in many cases.
