What you want is an attorney on retainer. That means you pay him an up front fee and he will provide advice billed on an hourly basis. You need to figure out what the concerns you have are for which you need an attorney--criminal cases require criminal defense attorneys; land issues require someone who concentrates in that area. A small firm may be better for you. They should be attorneys in the counties where you expect to run into issues.

You might, but as they have little money or they wouldn't be section 8 you won't get it from them. Suggest you look at if there is a grievance procedure--contact your local legal services/legal aid office.

First you need to contact a member of the Montana Trial Lawyers Association who handles employment issues NOW!

Not sure what non profit belongings and animals are. If they belong to a not for profit organization, tell the organization to move them. If not, it's on you--new owner doesn't have to give you time.

Yes, you can. Problem is collecting, as people in jail often do not have money to pay judgments from the court.
