Unbundled legal services are employed as an attempt to lower costs for the client by reducing the amount of time an attorney spends – and therefore the amount the attorney bills – on a legal matter. An American Bar Association study estimates that “fewer than three in ten of the legal problems of low-income households are brought to the justice system and only four in ten for moderate income households.” According to the The New York State Bar Association, “[u]nbundling is seen as a way to increase legal access for middle income consumers…” “Clients find unbundling attractive because it saves money and gives them more control over the process and strategy decisions.”
Unbundled attorneys are more likely to offer flat fee pricing to complete tasks, as opposed to the more common practice of hourly billing by full-service attorneys. Depending on the jurisdiction, they may provide legal ghostwriting services, that is, drafting legal documents on behalf of the client without formally appearing before the court.They may offer legal coaching to clients who plan to represent themselves pro se in the courtroom. Or they might do the opposite, agreeing that clients handle their lawsuits up until the trial phase, at which point the attorney takes over. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unbundled_legal_services
