Limited Scope Representation

The Mississippi Rules of Professional Conduct provide for limited scope representation.  Rule 1.2 of the Mississippi Rules of Professional Conduct provides that:  "(c)  A lawyer may limit the objectives or scope of representation if the limitation is reasonable under the circumstances and the client gives informed consent."  With the economy like it is, this is a good option for some clients.  I recently undertook representation for the sole purpose of filing and arguing post-trial motions.  This type of unbundling of legal services gives more people access to court while also giving attorney some additional work without getting pulled into full scale litigation.
