Many people can afford to pay for some legal services however if their legal matter is lengthy, many people find they simply run out of funds. Paying a lawyer on a limited scope basis allows the client to be able to pay for some legal services when paying a full retainer may not be financially possible.
Many lawyers offer this type of service although it is not widely advertised. The BC Family Unbundling Roster is currently in the process of collecting a roster of lawyers who offer this type of service and can be found at ClickLaw hosted by Courthouse Libraries.
