Are you in central Virginia?
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Funds limited. I prefer to pay a retainer than $20 for a phone call.

I never said not to talk on the phone. If I have representation, sure, I'd pay for that. $20 for a single phone call seems excessive, because I know I'm going to need a lot more help. I expect to talk on the phone a lot, sign papers, MSA, deeds, titles other docs.
