Unbundled Matters

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.
