Mr. Moore also offers unbundled legal services. Although “unbundled legal services” is a relatively new concept in the public perception, Mr. Moore has pioneered this approach by offering it in appropriate cases for years. In an “unbundling” arrangement, the attorney is assigned specific tasks. The client remains in charge of selecting the task the attorney is to provide, and otherwise handles other matters himself or herself, apart from the tasks the attorney is conducting. This service allows for a less expensive approach when compared to the traditional, comprehensive retainer approach.
