What types of tasks does an Oregon unbundled lawyer handle?
There is no standardized type of "Oregon unbundled legal service" because attorneys handle the scope of these types of matters in a spectrum of ways, and clients have a wide variety of requirements. A client might hire an unbundled service lawyer to perform some tasks, including, but not limited to:
- evaluating the client's case, and advising about strategy;
- informing about legal responsibilities or rights;
- informing about court rules and procedures;
- advising about alternative dispute resolution options;
- preparing specific documents, briefings, motions, or other legal pleadings;
- reviewing documents;
- conducting investigations;
- referring specific issues to know experts;
- performing appropriate legal research;
- advising on settlement options or negotiations;
- helping preparation for court appearances;
- appearing with the client in court for a limited purpose; or
- assisting with an appeal.
Unbundled Oregon legal services can provide an excellent option for clients who don’t need the expense or full level of service associated with full legal representation, but who still need legal help along the way.
