Washington State allows attorneys to appear for a limited purpose without having to hire or retain an attorney to handle your entire case. In a legal proceeding, do you need assistance negotiating final orders, conducting mediation, or arguing a hearing? Superior Court Civil Rule 4.2 allows attorneys to appear for a specific task, typically with a specific estimate (i.e., how much it will cost), to handle your legal needs.
