Does anyone here actually consult with lawyer, and where do you go looking for one? Most regular lawyers have no idea of FinCEN regulations. The one that my accountant told me to talk to said she doesn't know anything and she can research for me for $250/hr.

Funny, that when I said the word "bitcoin" to her she immediately replied: "Oh, money laundering!!!"

That sounds a bit shady. They aren't supposed to charge you for "self education". That's why they specialize, so they don't have to spend time learning new stuff when they could be billing people for things they already know.

In the US: go to your State Bar association website, use the referral service or call state bar referral service and ask for a lawyer in the area of Financial Regulatory, Securities, Commercial Litigation, Tax Law, or Criminal Defense.  Could also look in the yellow pages.  Or talk to your family attorney and ask for a referral.

Yeah, but they may not wish to specialize in a particular area, but are still willing to do it for you if you're willing to pony up the cash for them to do so.

Also, regarding lawyers, Nolo (username on this forum) is a good one to consult.
