Event description

Description

Many people think they can’t afford to hire a lawyer. California law permits lawyers to represent clients on a “limited scope” basis. This means that even if you are representing yourself, you can pay a lawyer to provide coaching, advice and to represent you in negotiations or at court hearings. When the task is completed the representation ends. This class covers how to find, hire and work with a lawyer on a limited scope basis.

Class covers:

  • The benefits and risks of limited scope services versus full representation or self-representation
  • Areas of law where limited scope services have proven effective
  • How to determine if limited scope services would be the right option
  • Questions to ask when hiring a lawyer for limited scope services
  • How to divide the work between you and your lawyer
  • How to improve the quality of your relationship with your limited scope lawyer

Presented by:

Michelle Hopkins (http://hopkinsfamilylaw.com/attorney-profile/), Attorney at Law, Hopkins Family Law
