Limited Scope Retainers: Does the lawyer complete tasks related to the ones I hired her to do?

The lawyer performs only the legal tasks he or she was retained to complete. You remain responsible for all other aspects of your family law matter. For example, if you retain a lawyer to provide drafting services, you remain responsible for all correspondences between you and the opposing party or their counsel, service and filing of documents, negotiations, court appearances, to name a few.
