How a Lawyer Can Help You

Your attorney went to law school and has experience.

This means that he or she knows things that you don’t know about the law, and can coach you though the legal process.

You should discuss your legal matter thoroughly with your attorney. You are ultimately responsible for what happens with your case.

It is important that you are in control. It is important that you understand how you and your lawyer will be working together. Make sure to discuss your entire case with your lawyer.

Here are just a few of the options that you and your lawyer could agree to:

Limited Scope Representation

This means that you are using a limited amount of your attorney’s time to help you with your family law legal matter—in order to save money. Your attorney determines (or “scopes out”) what you need to do, and what you can do, to successfully represent yourself in court.
