limited scope law services

In today’s difficult economy we know that many people cannot afford to retain counsel to represent them throughout their entire legal proceeding and this leaves many people on their own to try to navigate their way through a complicated and lengthy legal process without any legal advice or assistance.

The lack of legal representation is highest within the area of Family Law; in some jurisdictions as many as 80% of the litigants are self-represented. The inability to obtain legal assistance leads to many problems for the individuals involved in the process as well as for our justice system as a whole. The self-represented individual often obtains less than favorable results and leaves the Court process feeling ignored and abused.

The legal profession is now beginning to realize that legal services need to be delivered in other ways, which address the need for access to justice for the public and improves outcomes for individuals as well as assisting the Justice System to operate more effectively and efficiently.
