Traditionally, legal services have involved a comprehensive approach where legal professionals represent a client from the beginning to the end of a matter or the client passes on hiring services. But having a legal professional handle an entire case is not for everyone. Some individuals may not want or be able to afford this level of representation but may benefit from specific legal services which can range from appearances in court to drafting documents to managing particular aspects of a matter.
Limited scope (or unbundled) legal services is hiring a legal professional to handle only part of a case or to do a specific task. Legal coaching is a type of unbundled legal service where a legal professional coaches a person by providing strategies and tools to the client to prepare and present their case as effectively as possible. A legal coach remains behind the scenes and the client performs all tasks in the case directly.
