Q: I need a lawyer to review some evidence I have to decide if I have a credible case and what the fee might be.
A: You don't mention what type of case you are asking about. If it is a claim for service-connected compensation, I or another attorney can review your case and no attorney can charge you for that. The same is true for a Social Security disability claim. An attorney can discuss the case with you, but they cannot charge you a fee for talking to you about it. You also posted this question in a criminal law area, but if you have a question about possible/actual criminal charges, then you should consult with a criminal law attorney in your local area. You likely can be charged a consultation fee for that meeting.
A good lawyer can review your evidence and tell you the value and whether or not it is admissible as evidence. Whether or not something is admissible often depends on what purpose or what theory of the case you are trying to prove.
I hope this helps.
