Unbundled Legal Services

What are Unbundled Legal Services?

“Unbundled Legal Services” a/k/a “customized client services” or “limited scope representation” (collectively ‘LSR’) are when an attorney and a client agree that the attorney will perform some, but not all, aspects of the client’s legal matter. The client is responsible for handling any and all aspects of his or her own case for which the attorney has not been retained. This allows the client to choose the level and scope of representation he or she desires and provides predictable control over the cost of various legal services.

“Amy was invaluable in helping me through a difficult time. I was dealing with the overwhelming emotions involved in the divorce process. Amy walked me through the process and made it easy. She answered my questions, no matter how trivial and took time out of her day to come meet with me rather than making me come to her. Amy did a wonderful job of making a difficult time less difficult. Now I can focus on living my best life possible with my children.” – Kayla
“I have enjoyed working with Amy on several projects over the years. She brings good ideas and much enthusiasm to the table. She also is open minded to other’s suggestions and willing to work on those ideas as well.” ~Phil Garland, Attorney, Garner, Iowa
“Amy is a superb advocate for her clients with the experience and skill to achieve the best results.” - Andrew B. Howie, Attorney, West Des Moines, Iowa
“When we started the adoption process and didn’t know what to expect, Amy helped us through the whole process. She got us information in a timely manner and we were able to do all the preparations through email since we live over an hour away. We will use The Law Shop in the future when the need arises!” – Bill & Elaine
