At Murdoch Law Firm, we take the client’s entire case. If there is a matter related to that representation calling for practice in an area that we do not frequently engage in, we will notify you and assist you in obtaining other representation for the matter.
As a rule, we do not engage in a new legal trend called “bundled services”. Bundled services is a concept whereby an attorney can be hired for a single portion of a case, or only a few portions of a case. A typical example would be one in which an attorney is retained to file responsive pleadings, but actual in court representation is provided by another lawyer, or by the client representing himself in court. Murdoch Law Firm is philosophically opposed to this concept, as it is our belief that engaging in such an arrangement will invariably lead to misunderstandings and confusion on part of the client as to the role of the attorney in the matter. At Murdoch Law Firm, we feel it is best that we handle your entire matter..
