The attorney and client enter into an agreement which clearly defines the tasks that the attorney will perform and the tasks for which the client will be responsible. LAR is intended to assist those who may not want to or who cannot afford to incur the cost of representation for an entire case. All the attorneys in the office can do Limited Assistance Representation.
