Solicitors in Ireland may charge for phone calls, but it ultimately depends on the individual solicitor and their fee structure. Some solicitors may include phone calls as part of their overall service and charge a flat fee or an hourly rate for their services, which would cover communication with clients through various channels, including phone calls. In such cases, the cost of phone calls would be factored into the overall fee for the legal services provided.
However, other solicitors may bill phone calls separately, especially if the calls involve extensive discussions or consultations. In such cases, the solicitor may charge based on their hourly rate for the time spent on the phone call.
It’s also possible that solicitors may have specific fees or policies regarding phone consultations, such as charging a fixed rate for a certain duration of phone consultation.
To obtain accurate information about a solicitor’s fee structure, including whether they charge for phone calls, it’s best to contact them directly and inquire about their specific billing practices.
