Lawyer in which country?

For an Australian citizen thinking of moving to the United States, is it better to see an immigration lawyer in Australia, or one in the US, for consultation? This assumes that one is currently in Australia, but travels occasionally to the US.

The ideal goal would be permanent residency, though another long-term visa that allows residency and the ability to work, would also be acceptable.
More generally, is it better to find lawyers in the country of origin or destination, for immigration type issues?
