I have a few questions I want to ask a lawyer before starting my next business. Since it will not take a lot of the lawyers time what is the procedure for this?

Anyone have a similar experience?

You should be able to just engage an attorney for an hour or two for a consultation. Obviously, it's easier if you already have a relationship. If not, just phone and say that you're looking for a few hours of consulting about X.

Depending on what advice you need, you might need to speak to different specialties.

I think there are lawyer advice forums online, especially on reddit. I never use reddit though so I have never tried this. Worth looking into though, you can dm as many "lawyers" from there as you want and get multiple opinions. Worth a try so if you eventually ever speak to a real one in person, you will at least be somewhat informed on what you're asking the lawyer about.

All law firms should have contact information on their site. Try to find a firm that specializes in your industry. Send an email and ask them to set up a meeting. You will have a chance to negotiate fees ahead of time its not a surprise or anything. They will usually just do a 10-minute phone consult to see if they are a good match for you first, there is usually no charge for this but sometimes it is a small fee. I have experience working in a law firm. We would get calls/emails all the time from people asking for information like this. It's no problem and lawyers don't mind you just calling or emailing. Email is better as it is easier for them.

Exactly, they are a business - they want customers so they should be happy to help.

That's actually not obvious at all. Many people are not sure if you are simply able to approach a lawyer, or if you need some sort of referral, or if the lawyer will be offended or annoyed if you call them, etc. I genuinely don't know what else you could be asking, if that answer is not something that is considered an appropriate response to you.

I would agree.
