Yesterday, I received an email inquiring why a bond would be $50,000. As
it usually happens my reply illicited several other emails back and forth.
I tried to explain that there is a bond schedule for all cases in Houston,
Harris County, Texas. The bond in any particular case may be raised after
a request is made. I truly wish the person would have just called me instead
of exchanging ten emails before I was able to answer all her questions.
For now on, I am going to answer at most two emails from the same person
before I insist they call me on the phone to discuss a case. A five minute
conservation is far more effecient then an unlimited amount of emails.
Lastly, I am unable to quote a fee for a criminal case without talking
to a person on the phone.
