On Jan 30, 9 AM Pacific, Sue Talia will be presenting a three hour online program through PLI on unbundling. The program is free, and will also be available online afterwards.
Here is the link to the information. You can find out there if it is approved for continuing legal information in your state — it appears to be approved for many states, and even in some non-US countries.
Sue, of course, is a real leader in this field, and particularly in presenting the concepts in ways that show how appealing the approach can be for lawyers in the market.
This is an extract from the promotional materials:
Why You Should Attend
This program will provide an introduction to the rapidly changing practice of limited scope representation (often called “unbundling”) in a family law context, including all of the fee agreements, forms and other materials you will need to practice limited scope representation competently, safely and profitably.
What You Will Learn
The ethical rules governing limited scope representation
How to limit risk, including malpractice and insurance coverage issues
How to identify the cases which lend themselves to limited scope representation
How to reach a currently untapped pool of paying clients
How to market your limited scope practice
How to use limited scope to expand pro bono recruitment, lawyer for a day programs, and stretch legal services budgets farther
Who Should Attend
Solo and small firm family lawyers who serve middle class and moderate income clients, any family lawyer who wants to expand their client and referral base, and pro bono recruiters and legal services providers who want to learn how to help more clients with limited funding would benefit from attending this program.
Congratulations to all. Please spread the word in your states.
