Seeking a Canadian immigration lawyer with experience in self-employed immigration.

I'm looking for a lawyer who gives consultations over the phone, as I'm not in Canada at the moment. I have some very specific questions concerning self-employed immigration and a few other things (self-employed being the top priority though), so I'd like to find someone who is willing to answer questions as opposed to plugging my data into their questionnaire for a "chance assessment." I don't care where in Canada the lawyer is located, as long as they are versed in federal immigration procedures. Do you guys happen to know anyone like that?

Please recommend a great Real Estate/Probate Attorney in San Antonio, Tx

[San Antonio Probate/Real Estate Attorney filter] Can anyone from the Hive recommend a good probate/real estate attorney in San Antonio or surrounding areas. Requirements are that this lawyer be a real go-getter and not afraid to stand up against other attorneys on our behalf. I don't want a good ol' boy that's going to become chummy with the other attorneys representing the others in this case as has happened recently with our present attorney. I want someone that's smart, ethical, and a bit of a scrapper.

Does that make sense?

Debtfilter: Employer provides signing bonus structured as forgivable loan (forgiven if employee stays with firm long enough). Employee leaves soon after, and employer seeks to collect on loan. Employee is now a broke grad student, so employer offers to defer collection of loan until grad school is complete. Question: If length of time in grad school exceeds state statute of limitations on original loan, does this mean the loan will discharge itself before it can be collected? [more inside]
