What is the Most Cost-Effective Method to Communicate With a Lawyer?

Written by Russell Alexander ria@russellalexander.com / (905) 655-6335

The most cost-effective method for you to communicate with your lawyer is by way of electronic mail (e-mail). Communicating by e-mail is encouraged because it is often more efficient than a phone call. Clients often save on costs by reporting on only the salient points of their message.

Moreover, e-mails provide a written record of your communications, which may further save on costs as you can reference past e-mails to confirm if you have already raised a particular point with your lawyer or law clerk, eliminating the need for a follow up phone call to your lawyer.
