can I email instead of regular mail?

Postby Anonymous User » Fri Oct 25, 2013 10:48 pm

I spoke to the receptionist guy at a smaller firm. I basically just asked if they take 2Ls. He said to mail my application to this guy - a partner/principle at the firm. I asked if I should email or regular mail, he said regular mail. The partner has his email address on the website.. can I just email him anyway? That's what most law firms do, and the receptionist may not know....is it a big deal? Or should I actually go get a manilla envelope and regular mail.?

Yes, I would listen to the explicit directions from the person who may be able to hire you. Buy some forever stamps.
