If I am representing myself in superior court in an unlimited civil case and I hire an attorney for limited services (“unbundled legal services”) how does that work with me being self-represented? Does the attorney need to file anything with the court? In my case, I am the plaintiff and the defendants have an attorney. I have the sense that the defendants are lying and presenting false evidence to their attorney and think they can get away with it because they have an attorney. I don’t think their attorney is yet aware that the defendants are doing this and is being stringed along. I’m doing a good job so far representing myself and we are in discovery. My case might gain more strength if I have an actual attorney conducting questions at possible depositions and other discovery procedures to let the defendants know that I mean business. Is this a common scenario?
