Hard drive recovery near baltimore

Can anyone recommend a hard drive / data recovery service near Baltimore? Or failing that, a non-local one / a non-spammy explanation of how to find such a service that is reputable and not too expensive? Perhaps a sign of the times, but google is really being unhelpful, and mostly giving me fake local ones that seem to be aiming to SEO-trick people who are doing the obvious searches into thinking they're actually local.

In case it's helpful the drive is a seagate backup portable 1TB (not mine), with what from other, more successful google searches, could be a seized spindle, or perhaps some sort of power problem (though I've tried hooking it up to regular external power through the sata jack without success). If this is right the data is fine, and I've even found people who claim to have basically just taken the thing apart and got the spindle unstuck manually, but I'm really not enthused about trying that.
