Time Crunch for Attorneys and Clients

My preference is to work with clients who understand an attorney's time is valuable. As a result, corresponding by e-mail to obtain short updates and to ask quick questions are ideal. Similarly, I understand clients are busy with work and families. They don't have time for frequent long explanations or telephone calls during office hours. Moreover, they don't have time to take off from work for long tedious office visits. This is especially so, when an evening or weekend telephone conference will provide the same information as a face to face meeting. For those who believe long essays are required for any communication between attorneys and clients, an hourly rate charge of $350 to $450 bill will probably break you of that belief.
