Limited Scope Representation
Limited scope representation, sometimes called “unbundling,” allows a client and his/her lawyer to agree that the lawyer will provide limited services to the client. This means the lawyer will represent the client only in a certain area or task rather than representing the client for the entire scope of the legal matter.
This Alabama Lawyer article by Henry Callaway explains the 2012 changes to the Rules of Civil Procedure and the Rules of Professional Conduct that establish procedures for limited scope representation.
