Tying It All Together: Mediation, Unbundling, Collaboration, and a New Paradigm

...is not new, that it began over 20 years ago, that forty (40) states have “unbundling rules” and that the American Bar Association (ABA) is highly in favor of unbundling, mediation, and collaborative legal approaches. It is an ethical approach with a very low rate of malpractice claims and abuse. But, the things I am referencing below are not generally in use in WV, where they are so desperately needed. I was disheartened to find Mr. Mosten’s four...

MORE ABOUT UNBUNDLING (A $500 Product That is Worth $1000)

...ienced, or less innovative lawyers have a sufficiently valuable product to unbundle? I suggest that unless they are willing to do thousands of dollars’ worth of “groundwork”, the answer may be, “No.”. For now, I believe “unbundling” will work only for the passionate innovator, the person who builds enough value into the product being sold that no reasonable person can question the ethics of the process or the value of the product. Unbundling requi...

An Example of an Unbundled Legal Service: Allocation of Parental Rights, AKA “Paternity Suit”

...yriad services a lawyer can provide, on many subjects, that fit the label “unbundled”. It is a way that a person with a limited budget, or who wants more answers before deciding to retain a lawyer for full-representation, can get important information. Our formula for unbundled services is designed to provide up to $1000 worth of services for a flat fee of $500. I can curate nearly 1500 pages of blog writing, 30 videos, 400 articles, and a 300 pag...

Tying Together “Unbundling” of Legal Services

...is summer I added a ten minute video and blog article to my explanation of unbundled legal services. Here’s the link, but it will take you awhile. http://hunterlawfirm.net/more-about-unbundling-a-500-product-that-is-worth-1000/ I suggest you skip it for now and come back if you need more. Just try finding a lawyer in your small town or city to help you on a landlord and tenant dispute. You will, almost certainly, be sent to the magistrate’s office...

An Example of Unbundling of Legal Services

As you will see if you search my blog for “unbundling”, “unbundled legal services”, or “future of the law”, I have created some carefully tailored legal services that permit us to help a person on a limited budget. These services include a “legal checkup”. I revised my post on that topic just a few days ago. Here it is if you are interested. https://wp.me/p4utce-4H Let me give you an example of how unbundling allowed me to help a person who simpl...

The Imperative of a Full Legal Check-up; an “Unbundled Legal Service”:

...egal Service”: https://youtu.be/YpTnNFm82ng I notice I have used the term “unbundled legal service” in several of my videos. Here’s the most basic” doing something that is “Important but not Urgent”. Of course, if you are on your death bed or headed into “the valley of the shadow of death”, it might be Important and Urgent. But most of the time we say, “Manana”. We think we have plenty of time. None of us can know that. A “legal checkup” is not on...

Unbundling of Legal Services: a Low Cost Alternative

The concept of unbundling of legal services is simple and economical, but for some reason it took 20 years or so for WV to permit it. Here are several articles that I have written on the concept of paying a lawyer for a clearly defined job like ghostwriting a document or providing a behind the scenes consultation, or “legal coaching”, with an option of moving to full representation. This is part of my efforts to bring legal services to as many pe...

In this introductory video, I spend perhaps a minute each on several subjects that encompass the panoply of subjects I wish to cover in this video series. It’s a good summary, except my family law services, which I cover in meticulous detail in many other of my new videos. Access to justice for low an...

Unbundling of Legal Services (A Low Cost Alternative)

The poor and people of moderate income have great difficulty in obtaining legal services in WV. Something like 70% of litigants in family court are “pro-se” or self-represented. For awhile WV was in the dark ages. There was an ethics opinion that lawyers couldn’t even “ghost write”, or assist a party from behind, without becoming “record counsel”. That has been clarified. We now can do those things. Unfortunately, contrary to more progressive sta...

My “Law Coach” or My Lawyer?

...erils of self-representation. I have a product for these folks. I call it “unbundling of legal services”. Some lawyers are not ready to venture into this area, but, with my 46 years of experience, I have posted 350 blog articles, over 1200 pages. Many of them constitute tutorials or templates for things every litigant should know. That is a rich content resource that I can guide you through. I do not accept “canned” or “guest” blog articles. “Unbu...
