Limited Scope Representation In Family Law Cases
When it comes to legal services, there shouldn’t be a one-size-fits-all approach. Each case is unique, and you are entitled to select the level of representation that makes sense for your situation, including your budget.
At Sowald Sowald Anderson Hawley & Johnson, we provide limited scope representation to address clients’ needs in a capacity that is most helpful for them. You can turn to our lawyers for guidance on a specific issue or a certain part of your family law case. This approach puts you in the driver’s seat, so you can select the level of professional service you need.
What Is Limited Scope Representation (LSR)?
Also known as unbundled legal services, limited scope representation is an arrangement where the attorney represents a client for only certain parts of their case. Rather than representing you from start to finish, our lawyers can handle aspects of your case that you need the most help with.
This type of representation has been permissible in Ohio since 2007. However, not every firm or lawyer offers it. We believe it’s a valuable way to give clients a choice in how and to what extent they want to enlist our services.
What Types Of Family Law Cases Can LSR Work For In Ohio?
You can pursue LSR for many types of family law cases, including divorce, child custody, mediation and adoption. Unbundled services might include:
- Drafting or reviewing a settlement agreement
- Providing consultation services
- Coaching you before a hearing, mediation session or court appearance
- Representing you in mediation or specific court hearings
These are just a few examples. If you’re unsure whether LSR is right for you, our team can provide guidance on that.
Benefits Of Limited Scope Representation
There are many benefits to LSR, including:
- Reduced cost
- More tailored services
- Greater flexibility in selecting your services
- The ability to benefit from professional guidance
- Legal help focused on where you need it the most
LSR offers a collaborative way for you to benefit from the experience and knowledge of our lawyers without committing to comprehensive representation.
