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?

We would like to buy a new house about half the value of this one, preferably without selling. However, that would require a loan, and we have lousy credit. [more inside]
