You need an attorney with experience in Consumer Law, particularly the Consumer Sales Practices Act. A CSPA violation allows the party being harmed to recover legal fees. An attorney will likely ask you for a retainer which will cover several hours of their time. The total retainer amount will vary depending on the amount of the attorney's hourly legal fee.
