RULE 83.5.8 LIMITED SCOPE REPRESENTATION IN CIVIL CASES

« Back

(a) In General. A lawyer may limit the scope of representation in civil cases if the limitation is reasonable under the circumstances and the client gives informed consent in writing.

(b) Procedures. A lawyer who provides limited representation must comply with Kansas Supreme Court Rule 115A, as later amended or modified, with two exceptions.  First, the lawyer must use the federal forms rather than the Kansas State Court forms. Second, Rule 115A(c) does not apply in the District of Kansas.  Any attorney preparing a pleading, motion or other paper for a specific case must enter a limited appearance and sign the document.  The Bankruptcy Court may have additional Local Rules that govern its limited scope practice.

(c) Participation. The United States District Court for the District of Kansas allows any attorney registered as active to practice before this court to offer limited scope representation.
