Unbundled Legal Matters in Tampa
When a lawyer provides unbundled legal services, the client hires her to perform a specific task or to represent her for only a limited purpose or issue of the matter instead of the entire legal matter. The attorney breaks down the tasks associated with a client’s legal matter and provides representation only pertaining to a clearly defined portion of the client’s legal needs. The client accepts responsibility for doing the footwork for the remainder of the legal matter until reaching the desired resolution. Unbundled representation offers clients a less costly alternative to full legal representation. These services bring legal representation to a wider spectrum of the population by making it more affordable. Unbundled services include legal research, ghostwriting of pleadings and correspondences, legal coaching, or representation in court on a limited issue.

FAQs for Unbundled Matters
I don’t feel like I need full representation by an attorney for my divorce, but I’d like to have one available to whom I can ask questions. Can I hire you for limited representation?
Yes. Open Palm Law offers unbundled services, meaning that the client hires us for a specific limited purpose and handles other matters himself. This is a great way to limit your legal fees while still having the representation you need.
If I begin with unbundled services but then feel like I need full representation, can I retain Open Palm Law?
Yes. If during our limited representation you determine that you would be more comfortable with full representation, we can sign an updated retainer agreement for full representation of your matter.
If Open Palm Law represents me fully and I determine that I would like less representation, can I do that?
Yes. We would sign a new retainer agreement limiting your representation.

“Joryn was simply amazing. Her supporting, consistent, honest, and most importantly – productive – approach was exactly what I needed to get through the process. A court trial was imminent if we did not have a successful mediation (the third one!), and no other attorney was able to focus the entire team like Joryn.”Danielle, January 2016
