Paying the hourly rate for full service representation for a small claim may result in the cost being more than the recovery, but hiring an attorney under a Limited Scope agreement to review your paperwork and explain the documents and testimony necessary to win your case may make you more likely to succeed with an investment of money that makes sense given the likely recovery.


Work TOgether

in  some situations you may not need, want, or be able to afford full legal representation concerning your legal matter.  Limited scope representation hires an attorney to perform specific tasks, which may be just giving legal advice, drafting documents, representing you at a specific hearing, or reviewing and explaining a document to you.  It allows you to control costs and  to tailor the services to your particular situation.
