Getting SplitReady Episode 27.3: Protecting Your Budget and Managing Your Divorce with Limited Scope Representation

The Benefits of the Crisis Management Mindset

A growing trend in the divorce industry is limited scope representation in which less may mean more. Limited scope representation involves handling many of the details yourself while letting an attorney engage at critical points. When a budget is substantially constrained, limited scope representation is especially popular with divorcing couples.

Join us for an engaging discussion with Sandra Crawford from Law Crawford, P.C. about the merits and benefits of limited scope representation.

Also joining the conversation are Michele Traina, from The Divorce Diaries, and Hirsch Serman, MBA, CPA from Lifecycle Financial.
