Which is the best way to certify a copy of my UK passport in Los Angeles?

I need to get a certified copy of my British passport. Originally, the requester asked me to get one from a UK solicitor. But I live in Los Angeles, so the options are either get one from the British Consulate or have my passport certified from a US lawyer (the requester says). The British Consulate option may be cheaper (or even free?? but how long would it take?) but the US lawyer option may be more convenient and faster ( I asked about using a notary but I think they prefer a lawyer). Would a US lawyer even know what to do about certifying a UK passport copy? am I going to have pay the lawyer for their time "researching" the subject? any idea how much it would cost anyway?
thanks very much for any tips!!!
