Self Help Legal Center & Online Documents
Nearly every day of the week I meet with people who are dealing with some type of debt or legal issue. Garnishments, foreclosure, repossession, lawsuits. For many of the people I meet with bankruptcy is the best option to get a fresh start.
However, I also meet with many people who are dealing with a relatively minor debt or legal issue. They may have received a lawsuit that they wish to defend, have minimal credit card debt that they could settle and avoid bankruptcy, or simply need a demand letter written that will likely resolve the issue.
In effort to help as many people as I can, I offer what is known as “unbundled” or “limited scope” legal services. Basically I provide you with the information, documents, and resources necessary to handle your case through the legal process. You are able to save money on legal fees by doing some of the work yourself but have the added assurance of an attorney there to guide you through the process.
My office offers the following services:
Limited Scope Representation in Court Proceedings
If you have been sued you know the stress that comes with the unknown. The legal system can be intimidating if you don’t understand the process or know how to prepare the necessary documents.
Attorneys, however, are expensive. Most law firms require a substantial retainer fee (usually thousands of dollars) before they will agree to represent you. Representing yourself through a legal proceeding can be a costly minefield. Through my limited scope representation services we can meet in the middle. I can provide you with information, resources, and even help you draft documents that need to be filed with the court – all at a fraction of the cost of retaining a full representation attorney.
You get the benefit of having a lawyer help you with the legal process while being able to control costs by only buying what you need. If you are willing to do some of the legwork in your case, limited scope representationis a good option for you.
Have you ever been involved in a situation where you felt that a simple letter from an attorney would resolve the situation? Finding a law office that is willing to help with this limited service is difficult. I would be happy to help you in learning more about your situation and drafting a letter to help you resolve your legal situation. Not only will I help you prepare a letter that you can send, if you would prefer I can prepare a letter that is sent out on my firm’s letterhead under my signature.
Using the online virtual part of my law practice you can purchase legal documents to help you with the creation of an LLC, help you respond to collection agencies who are violating federal law, landlord/tenant documents, rental leases, and even a bill of sale. You provide the information needed to prepare your documents through an online secure portal; I will review and revise the documents as necessary, and then deliver them to you.
Legal Advice Phone Call
Often all you may need is to understand what the law is in particular area in order to make sound decisions. Through this service you can get your legal questions answered without leaving your home. I also offer this service via Email or Web Cam.
Legal & Court Coaching
Over my career I have met many people who are representing themselves in court and who have done a pretty good job of it. However, not knowing the procedures and rules of the court can sink an otherwise good case. Further, representing yourself is difficult because it can be tough to be objective.
With my legal and court coaching services I am there to help you evaluate your case, understand the procedural steps to the legal process, and even coach you on persuasive ways to present your arguments.
