Posted by JustAnswer at customer's request) Hello. I would like to request the following Expert Service(s) from you: Live Phone Call. Let me know if you need more information, or send me the service offer(s) so we can proceed.
Expert:  LegalGems replied 1 year ago.

The telephone service is a new feature and typically mechanics/computer professionals participate in that- it is an auto offer by the site. Most attorneys/doctors don't participate in private phone calls because it can create the impression of an attorney client relationship which is not the case here given this is a public forum and I'm only permitted to provide information versus advice; but I'd be happy to answer any follow up questions you may have on this page.
