In California, work done by a PE (working as a PE.. if someone wants you 
to cut their grass or dig a ditch, that's different) has to be with a 
written contract. The contract has to contain some specific things 
(description of the work, schedule, rate, etc.).  If you someone asks 
you to do something on the phone, that's typically not something you 
could charge for.  If there's an issue of non-performance, there's a 
variety of remedies (aside from the obvious lawsuit).  I'm not sure if 
an email exchange would meet the requirements of the law as far as 
"written contract"

(obviously, there are some details, exceptions, etc.. but that's it in 
broad strokes)
