Limited-Scope Representation

Limited scope representation is when you and a lawyer agree that the lawyer will handle some parts of your case and you will handle others. This is different from more traditional arrangements between lawyers and clients where a lawyer is hired to provide legal services on all aspects of a case, from start to finish. 

Here are some examples of limited-scope scenerio’s which JB Dath Law can arrange for you:

  • You can just consult JB Dath Law and get legal information and advice about your case when you need it.
  • You can hire JB Dath Law to represent you on certain issues in your case (like child support or custody) while you do the rest yourself.
  • You can hire JB Dath Law to prepare the forms and other court documentats but file them yourself and represent yourself at the hearings.
  • You can hire JB Dath Law to coach you on how to represent yourself at the court hearings and help you prepare the evidence that you will present in court.
  • You can hire JB Dath Law to help you with the more complicated parts of your case, such as discovery and legal research while you do the simpler tasks yourself.

When you cannot afford to pay for a lawyer to handle your entire case, limited-scope representation can be a great way for you to have legal help with your case while keeping costs down. Courts approve of limited-scope representation because they want to encourage people to get as much legal assistance as they need to protect their rights. They know that you will do a better job of following proper court procedures and presenting the important information to them if you have the help of a lawyer during the more complicated parts of a case.

Client Testimonials

"I would recommend JB Dath Law to anyone expecting results. Jonathan took on my case in the middle of a custody hearing, and completely turned around the outcome of my case. With the fate of the custody of my son on the line, he worked around the clock to bring himself up to speed on my trial, and came into the courtroom ready to go. Not only did he stop things from spiraling out of control, but he ended up securing me full physical and legal custody of my child. He continues to provide top notch services, and his knowledge of the courts and the systems is second to none in Yolo County. The only complaint I have is that I didn't retain his services from day one!"

-J.L.
