Unbundled Legal Services

Previously, law firms have resisted offering "unbundled legal services."  The term "unbundled" legal services means that the client purchases only the legal services they need, and no more. Times have changed. The network of virtual law firms now offers legal forms bundled with legal advice for a fixed fee.  There are advantages to using a "virtual law firm" when compared with a "traditional law firm."

Compare the difference between a "traditional law firm" and a law firm with a virtual law practice:
