Description

We live in a time of unparalleled customization. From the choices of what to watch on TV to the set-up of the home screen on a phone, consumers demand the ability to manage their lives how they want. Divorce is no different and more and more couples are seeking ways to control the divorce process, control the costs and meet their desired objectives.

Enter unbundled legal services or limited scope representation as it is sometimes called. Under this model divorcing individuals work with their attorney to clearly identify the scope of what the attorney will do and the related cost. When coupled with the available options for divorcing individuals to do their own research and planning, this can e a very powerful and cost effective option.

Join us for a discussion with Sandra Crawford about unbundled legal services as they relate to divorce.

About Sandra Crawford

For the past 29 years Sandra has dedicated her legal practice to educating and leading clients to the clearest path to resolution of their unique legal issues. She helps distressed families and partnerships move out of conflict using the most appropriate legal dispute resolution model, be that: the Collaborative Practice, mediation, limited scope representation or litigation. As legal disputes and status adjustments (like dissolutions of marriages or partnerships) can be costly in terms of money, time lost, and emotional stress, it is critical for people facing such life changing events to be educated about and understand clearly their legal options and the various paths to resolution available before proceeding.

Sandra received her undergraduate degree from DePaul University in 1984 and her Juris Doctorate from the John Marshall Law School in 1989. She has been a practicing mediator since 1994 and was among the first attorneys in Illinois to be trained in the Collaborative Law model of dispute resolution when the model was introduced here in 2001. Sandra’s areas of concentration are Family Law, Mediation, and Real Estate She works throughout Cook and the surrounding counties.

Sandra has served on the nonprofit board of directors of the Collaborative Law Institute of Illinois, where she has held the office of President. She serves on the Board of Directors for the Illinois Bar Foundation, which administers grants and funding for legal services agencies. She was a two term member of the Illinois State Bar Association Assembly and Chair of the ISBA’s Women in the Law Committee. Sandra has been repeatedly nominated by her peers, evaluated and selected as an Illinois Super Lawyer – a group which includes only five percent of all the attorneys in her jurisdiction.
