Limited Scope Representation

What is limited-scope representation?

Limited-scope representation allows clients greater control over how an attorney is involved in their cases. It is similar to an a la carte menu at a restaurant — clients choose what services they want and need. The tasks within a case might be divvied up between the client, the attorney, and another service provider.
