When you need a lawyer to speak for your interests at certain events, such as a hearing, trial or settlement negotiations, Attorney Shelly Jean John is available on a “Limited Scope” basis. This is an excellent option for people who are content to handle the other aspects of their case (such as paperwork) but who are not comfortable speaking to the Judge or negotiating an agreement with the opposing attorney. These services are offered as a “flat-rate” so you will have the peace of mind of knowing your fees and can better implement your budget. The fees for representation at a hearing or short cause trial range from $1,000 to $1,750.
In order for Attorney Shelly John to best represent you, it is preferred that you hire her 3 to 6 weeks prior to your hearing. This allows time for any Supplemental documents to be obtained and filed prior to your hearing.
Attorney Shelly John is also available to assist in all other aspects of your case, including depositions, discovery requests and replies, the consideration and drafting of settlement agreements, Judgments, Request for Orders and other pleadings.
