What is limited-scope representation

Limited scope representation allows attorneys to provide discrete legal services to clients as a more affordable option to traditional full-service representation. The Michigan Supreme Court on September 20, 2017, adopted rules providing clearer direction to attorneys offering limited scope representation.

Why offer limited-scope services?

Judge Michelle Rick and attorney Kim Jones discuss Michigan's rule changes for limited scope representation. Specific examples of how Michigan attorneys can provide limited scope legal services to clients are provided.
