Elizabeth Scheffee, whose practice focuses on divorce and family law, was tapped to introduce
Paulette Brown, president of the American Bar Association, at the Maine
State Bar Association’s 2016 Summer Bar Conference, which was recently
held in Bar Harbor, ME.
Scheffee, along with Associate Justice Andrew M. Mead, of the Maine Supreme
Judicial Court, and Elizabeth F. Stout, Esq., Law Office of Elizabeth
Stout, Portland, presented a panel discussion on Limited-Scope Representation.
The panel addressed developments in legal services delivery models since
a 2001 ruling that allowed lawyers to unbundle legal services; how attorneys
can use limited-scope representation to increase revenue; the value this
practice model brings to the court; and brainstorm how to attract and
serve consumers using limited-scope representation.
