Limited scope representation is when a lawyer and you agree that the lawyer will handle only some parts of the case, the cases you agree upon when you retain. Unless it is a limited scope representation, the lawyer you hire will represent you and handle all aspects of your case. Limited scope representation gives a specific and limited task to lawyers. Once lawyers complete what you have agreed upon, they are no longer responsible for responding to other aspects of the case.
Limited scope representation is a good choice for people who can’t afford to pay for a lawyer to handle your entire case. Courts approve of limited scope representation because they want you to get as much legal assistance as they need for you to protect your rights.
