Exploring Your Legal Options
As with any major decision, having options when faced with a legal issue is a valuable thing. Family law attorney Leonard provides several options to clients who need limited or focused legal representation.
During a free 30-minute consultation, our firm will explain your legal options which may include recommending the following options:
- Consulting attorney
- Consulting attorney during mediation
- Limited scope attorney
These options may help you save time and money as you seek to resolve your legal matter. Find out more about these options below:
Counsel From a Consulting Attorney
If after your free 30-minute consultation you still need information or want us to review or draft documents, the attorney is available on an hourly basis. He can work with you as a consulting attorney, which allows you to still represent yourself but also have experienced counsel to guide you. Our goal is to help facilitate the completion of work that parties are working on together.
Consulting Attorney During Mediation
Many people choose mediation as a way to resolve family law matters in an amicable and cost-effective manner. While individual parties are working with a mediator to resolve a property division or child custody dispute, it is beneficial for parties to also work with their own independent attorney to ensure that their legal rights are fully protected. Attorney Leonard can act as a consulting attorney during divorce mediation to review marital settlement agreements and other court documents and provide further legal assistance as needed.
Limited Scope Representation / Unbundled Legal Services
Attorney Leonard offers unbundled legal services as a limited scope attorney. He is able to come in to assist with one specific legal issue or a motion, excluding trial. If you choose to hire us as a limited scope attorney, a retainer fee will be quoted. This is a cost-effective choice for people who need the assistance of an attorney for a certain, specific legal issue, and have limited financial means.
