Westport family lawyer Richard H. Raphael is now offering limited scope representation to individuals in Connecticut whose family law matters qualify for the program. Raphael is offering limited scope representation to give a more affordable way for individuals to secure legal assistance and gain access to the Connecticut court system
Limited Scope Representation is when an attorney represents or helps an individual with only part of their legal matter. It is required that the attorney and client enter into a written agreement expressing the scope of the legal assistance.
Connecticut recently launched a Limited Appearance Pilot Program on January 6, 2014. This program was created for all family law matters throughout Connecticut. The Limited Appearance Pilot Program allows individuals with family law matters within the state of Connecticut to hire an attorney on a limited basis.
The objective of the program is to help make sure that justice is more accessible to those who do not have the financial ability to pay expensive retainer fees or hire an attorney for the entirety of their case. The “unbundling” of legal services within this pilot program allows a pro se litigant to hire an attorney for a complex part of their case and then handle the remainder of the case on their own.
Some of the services Westport family lawyer Richard Raphael can assist with on a limited scope basis include: negotiating divorce agreements, preparing pleadings responses, motions and other divorce documents and preparing pro se clients for self representation in trial or arbitration.
