What is unbundled legal services for family law?

Unbundled legal servicesHOW TO SAVE YOUR BUNS WITH UNBUNDLED LEGAL SERVICES

You don’t have to pay a lawyer thousands of dollars to take your case.  You can pay an hourly rate on an as needed basis, or contract with counsel to just handle certain aspects of your case.  Come in and let’s talk about it.

SO many times clients come to me AFTER the damage has already been done and tell me how they couldn’t afford counsel before, but now have no choice.

You have a choice to start your case in the most cost effective and efficient way instead of waiting until the results are so detrimental or wrong that you are forced to pay a lot more to undo the damage than to do it right the first time.

Consider unbundled services to be like a buffet dinner instead of the 8 – course gourmet “eat what I bring you” kind of law.

While the hourly rate is almost always the same some clients choose just some of the following services instead of all of it.

CONSULTATION TO SEE WHAT YOU NEED.

Many times people come in we discuss the matter and they hire me to draft the proposed agreement to discuss with their spouse or partner and they handle it from there.  Other times we talk about them going to mediation on their own and to then come back if there is still stuff to fight about.

DRAFTING OF DOCUMENTS WITHOUT ENTERING AS COUNSEL IN YOUR CASE.

While there are adequate self help forms for you to draft the legal agreements and necessary pleadings yourself, often the stress and headache of what may take you a week you can pay me to handle in 3 hours and know that they are done right.

COACHING AND PREPARING YOU TO ATTEND THE HEARING ON YOUR OWN.

What’s an exhibit.  Who testifies?  What am I supposed ask?  What is she going to ask me?  How to I tell the judge about that one time….?  Many can’t pay to have the lawyer prepare and do it for them, but those who clients who paid for just a few hours of my time to prepare for their hearing were so happy that they did

LEGAL EXPLANATION AND CONSEQUENCES

– what in the ________ does the statute mean and how does it apply to me?  Legalese is a foreign language.  Often sitting with me for an hour just to understand the law at hand can create so much ease or sometimes even end the fight.

ENTERING AS COUNSEL JUST FOR A CERTAIN HEARING OR PART OF YOUR CASE.

Maybe you’ve handled it on your own but now your final hearing is in 4 weeks and you want a lawyer to do the trial for you.

Really, Colorado is so big on access to justice right now that most courts will let me help you with whatever it is you need to save your children and restructure your family successfully.
