Do you happen to know these attorneys or you just searched on avvo?
Expert:  Ray replied 1 month ago.

AVVO rates all lawyers.You want the best one you can afford here.10 of 10 is the best.

I also looked them up and read their resumes and tried to match them to you , I also looked for ones I thought were more affordable.

Expert:  Ray replied 1 month ago.

Good luck here.

How to find unbundled civil litigation attorney?
Expert:  Ray replied 1 month ago.

All lawyers in Los Angeles are going to be higher than say the more rural areas in most cases.I read their resumes and tried to find smaller or solo type folks.Also if none of these pan out use the California Bar I gave you .Tell them your cost restrictions and ask them to work with that as well.

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Ok. But regarding unbundled, just search the internet?
Expert:  Ray replied 1 month ago.
Expert:  Ray replied 1 month ago.

California is really a leader in unbundled services..They started the trend here very limited in other states,

California: It is not unethical for an attorney to limit his/her professional engagement to the consulting, counseling, and guiding of self-representing lay persons in litigation matters, provided that the client is fully informed and expressly consents to the limited scope of representation. Los Angeles County Bar Association Professional Responsibility And Ethics Committee, Opinion No. 483, Los Angeles Lawyer, (February 1996).

California: If a client chooses to appear pro per (pro se) and there is not a court rule to the contrary, the attorney does not have to disclose the limited scope of representation to the court in which the matter is pending. An attorney may limit the scope of representation of a litigation client as long as the client consents to the limited representation. Los Angeles County Bar Association Professional Responsibility And Ethics Committee, Opinion No. 502, Los Angeles Lawyer.(November 4, 1999).

Ps are attorneys on superlawyers.com usually expensive?
Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Is it called civil rights attorney on avvo? If not, what should I put in the search bar for civil ligitation attorneys?
Expert:  Ray replied 1 month ago.

Usually but they are some of the best.Mr. Ohn would rate high for example.

Take care and good luck to you.

Expert:  Ray replied 1 month ago.

Civil litigation lawyers.

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Usually means civil rights?
Expert:  Ray replied 1 month ago.

Civil rights are where you have been denied some civil rights denied access to a building or public place, restrooms, something like that

Civil litigation or trial lawyers do civil suits against others, either you sue them or they sue you and you need counsel.

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Yeah but on avvo how do I find civil litigation attorney?
Customer: replied 1 month ago.
You mean civil litigation and trial attorney both are ok for civil suites?
Expert:  Ray replied 1 month ago.

Yes most lawyers are on yelp too but AVVO for lawyers is pretty reliable.I look at how long they have been at it, I check the state bar to make sure no disciplinary complaints.I read their resume to see what experiences they have had along the way here.These are the kinds of things I use to try and find you suitable lawyer that you can afford.

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
