I wanted to give a shout-out to Gabriel Cheong, owner of Infinity Law Group, for creating a new business model that unbundles legal services for reduced fees. Cheong has founded Cambridge Divorce Group which brings together contract lawyers who are willing to unbundle family law services for reduced rates. I’ve mentioned Cheong on here before because his law firm website features a web calculator to assist prospective clients in estimating their legal costs.
Cheong writes about his new venture on the Solo Practice University blog. It’s a great example of using unbundling to meet an underserved market of pro se litigants seeking limited legal assistance for family law matters. I can’t tell from the website, but I would expect that some of these unbundled services will be handled online between the lawyers and clients in order to make the unbundled services more efficient and the process of unbundling more cost-effective for the venture.
Wouldn’t it be great if these types of collaborative, unbundling lawyer ventures were available to the public in every state? With the ABA’s recent adoption of the Unbundling Resolution, maybe this is exactly what we will see more of in the near future.
