Please delete if this is an inappropriate subject. I am not soliciting for services, but I do have a question and this looked like a good forum to ask.
I have a family law case currently in the courts (Texas Family Law). I have an attorney, it is cost prohibitive to have him research for hours in case law for some specific information. Would it be possible to hire a 2L/3L student to do the research? As a nonlegal professional, I find it difficult at best to find the specific information. Essentially, I'm trying to avoid a paying a huge legal bill for something that has already been debated in a previous case.
There would be no expectations of privacy or legal opinions, just a list of cases that have dealt with the subject/opinions in previous cases.
Again, thank you, and my apologies if this is too off topic.
