Limited Scope Lawyering in Family Law Cases

Have you incorporated unbundled legal services or legal coaching into your practice yet? Attend this program and learn how doing things differently can help you do more – to improve access to justice, reduce family conflicts, enhance your career satisfaction, and grow your client base. A promising solution to the growing number of self-represented litigants in family court, unbundled legal services and legal coaching – also known as limited scope retainers – allow lawyers to assist litigants with parts of a case, based on the client’s needs and budget, instead of handling the entire case. Clients have more options for affordable legal services and lawyers attract new clients unable to afford full representation. So, what are the opportunities and challenges of limited scope retainers in family law cases? And how do you competently and effectively integrate different ways of providing legal services into your family law practice? Join us and hear directly from two Ontario family law lawyers whose models of unbundling are succeeding in the marketplace. Experienced family law practitioners Susan Blackwell and Lisa Eisen will share their observations on the potentials and pitfalls of limited scope retainers with family law clients. Topics include determining whether a litigant is a good candidate for a limited scope retainer, discussing different service models with potential clients, and more. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to benefit from two insider perspectives on one of the fastest growing areas of family law practice!

Live webinar with chat includes 60 day replay. This program features real-time audio of the presenter with synchronized presentation slides, and a chat feature that allows for live Q & A.
