Sending an email to Richard Burt (and receiving a reply) does not create an attorney-client relationship.

A prospective client should not send confidential information by email in seeking to hire Mr. Burt or in seeking a telephone consultation about hiring him.

No attorney-client relationship will be formed until Mr. Burt has spoken to prospective client, he has determined that there is no conflict with an existing client, and the prospective client has signed an engagement letter prepared by Mr. Burt that sets forth the terms of the representation.

After an attorney-client relationship has been formed, email (and voice mail) may of course be freely used for attorney-client communications.
