Answer:

Providing advice on possible claims is beyond the scope of AZLawHelp.org.  There is a short article discussing resources for obtaining assistance from an attorney on this site called "Where to Find an Attorney for Specific Legal Advice."  One of the resources listed is the State Bar of Arizona, the Bar's website has an attorney search option.  Fees may very among attorneys, though some attorneys provide free consultations, or work on a contingency fee basis.  A potential client will need to contact an attorney's office directly to learn about fee options for consultations or representation in a matter.
