Looking for attorney to be part of start-up

We are trying to work with some specific government programs whose regs and personal are rather ornery. We are wonder if it would be prudent, since cash is tight, to have a counsel not paid by the hour. For example, I when I asked for a survey (they published page 1, but not 2-4), I was told start in DC and file a FIOA. This while in a 60-day evalueation window. E.g. Fannie has a "disadvantaged" business, but I have waited > a month for a basic explanation, and still don't have it. I want to know how "unsolicited proposal" to the US government is handled (I have be waiting since 12/20/11) I am not that proficient at searching the FAR where as I hope an attorney would be. Any hints?
