what kind of questions could I get answered?
Expert:  LawTalk replied 4 months ago.


Asking what you need to "prepare for" is not really a realistic question---I cannot possibly teach you how to practice law writing back and forth---which is why the phone call would be so much better an idea, but that is up to you. Do you have more specific questions?
