Unbundling legal services simply refers to the practice of dividing a legal case into pieces and hiring an attorney to help you only with the part or parts that you need help with, rather than hiring an attorney for “full representation” to do everything in the case. Unbundled legal services can include anything from legal coaching, to document preparation, to representation in court at a final hearing. Unbundled services are typically charged a flat fee as opposed to the hourly charges for full representation.
When you hire an attorney for unbundled services you can handle your case one step at a time and only pay for the services you need. You can successfully represent yourself in your case and still have an attorney helping and supporting you.
