Unbundled Family and Divorce Legal Services at a Price You Can Afford Providing Only the Services You Need
If you are going through a divorce or another matter relating to family law, you probably have a lot weighing on your mind. Family law matters can encompass many issues, including:
Accepting clients with cases in the following counties:
Lake, McHenry, Kane & DuPage
Unbundled Legal Services
A vast majority of people involved in family and divorce cases are representing themselves. Although our legal system certainly allows for this, at least some assistance from a licensed attorney can be a huge advantage versus simply going it alone.
For a variety of reasons, some people prefer to retain an attorney on a limited or "unbundled" basis to work on specific sections of their cases or to draft only those documents they need. This attorney-client relationship is referred to as providing Unbundled Legal Services and is permitted by Illinois laws.
At The Law Offices of Michael Rada, I will provide only those legal services you need in order to help you limit your costs. If you need a specific legal service, we will jointly create a contract, outlining the limited services provided to you. Your contract will list our fees, which may be hourly or fixed, for the services you desire. By doing so, we will break your case into smaller, much more manageable parts so that you have more control over the costs. In most cases, payment will be due in advance of work beginning. When you need to move to the next step, we can simply amend the fee agreement to handle the next incremental step in your case.
Services Tailored to Fit Your Needs
Some of the services you may obtain include:
Legal coaching for meetings and hearings, mediation and court appearances
Consultations on legal issues related to your case
Drafting and review of your legal court documents
Assistance in Negotiation of issues
Creation of financial disclosures
Drafting letters and responses as part of your case
In this level of representation, my firm acts as a legal consultant to you assisting you in separate and distinct pieces of your case while you are representing yourself. My firm will not be involved with the day-to-day management of your case, the tracking of court deadlines, communicating with opposing counsel or in representing you in court. Many clients have successfully gone through their court cases using this level of legal support and have spent a fraction of the cost that full representation would have demanded.
The Law Offices of Michael Rada is highly supportive of your right to receive Unbundled Legal Services and believe that it is appropriate for a large number of clients.
Prompt and Attentive Service
Because I do not go to court, my calendar is well suited to help clients who are looking for legal advice and consultation, but are capable of attending court on their own. Here, you won't have to wait days for me to get back to you and won't hear that "I was tied up in court so I couldn't get back to you quickly."
This arrangement works well in a noncomplex case if you are highly organized, are able to manage your own case effectively and are comfortable representing yourself in court.
