Will most attorneys charge me for e-mails and phone calls?

Michael Geary answers:

Yes. Attorneys charge for their services, whether the service is performed at the courthouse, over the phone, or via e-mail. Obviously communication with your attorney is important. Let the attorney know how you prefer to communicate, whether by writing, telephone, e-mail or a combination of all three. Make sure that any methods you choose for communication with an attorney are secure (no one else has the password) to maintain your attorney client privilege of confidentiality. Most attorneys spend at least a third of their day in communication with clients. Therefore, as a general rule, you will be charged for telephone calls, e-mails and letters.
