Does It Cost Me to Email My Lawyer?

Will my lawyer charge me if I send him an email?

It depends.   What does your fee agreement with the lawyer provide?  If your lawyer is charging you by the hour, he will probably charge you for reading a substantive email.  If he is charging you a flat fee for a given project, he will probably not charge you extra for reading an email related to that project.  

If you have hired a lawyer on a contingent fee, he will not charge you for reading an email because his fee is based on the results he obtains for you, not on the time invested in your case.

We frequently correspond with clients by email and find that it increases our ability to provide prompt service.
