Providing clients the option of having myself as a consultant “Ghost Lawyer”.
Some of my clients prefer to deal with the “other side” themselves.
This ensures that they are not billed for the umpteen phone calls, emails or correspondences from the “other side”. Sometimes they simply want to deal with it themselves to avoid the increased hostility when counsels get involved. When the litigation reaches a pivotal stage, the clients are able to retain me as counsel of record in a heartbeat; given that I already have knowledge of the file, the transition is smoother and cost effective. I will require a retainer for this service however the retainer may not be as high as that required for a contested family law matter.
