Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Welcome to Just Answer! My name is***** give me a few minutes to review your inquiry. Thank you for your patience.
I have read your intro. Please state the specific legal question you would like answered. As to whether the lawyer can bill you for a phone call with your opponent, you are correct that if your opponent currently has an attorney, then he/she should not be talking to your opponent other than to say: "I cannot discuss this matter with you since you have an attorney." If your opponent does not currently have an attorney, then you lawyer can freely speak to your opponent.
