The thing is, dude, lawyers are not cheap. Nor are lawsuits. In fact, lawsuits are almost always very expensive, time-consuming, frustrating, infuriating and ultimately result in the client being disatisfied, feeling further wronged, and full of complaints about the system and the laws and the lawyers and the judges. That's particularly true when legal remedies are attempted to resolve a relatively minor dispute.
That's why one should never sue unless one has a very strong case and one has actual, concrete, provable damages of at least US$10,000 or more, at the very least. Heck, in most cases it's not worth suing for less than US$20,000. The only exception is where the dispute doesn't concern money, but instead concerns very serious long-term conduct that has an equivalent value to you -- such as child custody, or extreme continuous long-term harassment, or the like.
On the other hand, if the dispute involves less money than that, or involves a nuisance that will likely be resolved in the foreseeable future without causing lasting harm, one is FAR, FAR better off to try to resolve it by other means, rather than legal means, or to just put up with the damn nuisance and accept it as a crappy fact of life. Because if one instead chooses to seek a legal solution to such minor squabbles, one will definitely end up more frustrated, not less.

But, if you still want to hire a lawyer, feel free. Martindale Hubbell is the world's leading directory of lawyers. http://www.martindale.com
Keep in mind, though, that many lawyers will naturally look after their interests before yours -- that is, charging you a fee and bringing in revenue for the firm. Resolving your problem is their secondary concern.
Good luck. And think about the DIY solutions.
