About Lawyer Referral Services
Lawyer referral services enroll licensed attorneys who pay the necessary registration fee and meet basic guidelines. Callers referred to a participating attorney by a lawyer referral service receive a half-hour consultation for no more than $20.00.
After the initial half-hour consultation, should the caller decide to authorize the lawyer to take action on their legal issue, the caller and lawyer may negotiate fees. These fees may be on a full or reduced fee basis, depending on the program the attorney is participating in.
Limited Scope Representation
Limited scope representation is a way for a person to be able to afford legal help by limiting the amount of work an attorney does for them. This is also known as ”unbundled services.” In a limited scope arrangement, the attorney and client agree that the attorney will only do a certain list of things for the client. The remainder of the tasks and responsibilities in a case are the sole responsibility of the client. Please click the button below for more information on Limited Scope Representation.
