What kind of attorney I need and how much money I need to pay from start to end?

Asked over 1 year ago - Brookings, SD

I am studying in US in F1 status. I am wondering if there is any way to switch to any other status with work permit (e.g. H1B). Please note, I don’t have the OPT. I would appreciate your free advice. Thanks.
