We are in the middle of designing our site and have a ton of questions that are specific to the type of industry we are in - and which are made more complicated by our business being online (such as how do laws for this vary state-to-state?, do we collect a different tax rate depending on the state?, do we need a special certification?, etc). Are there attorneys out there that specialize in e-commerce and would help guide us to the answers we need, and ask questions that we aren't asking?

I would not be asking an attorney about tax laws. I would be asking a CPA. I don't see any need for "specialty" attorney. Interstate commerce has been going on LONG before Al Gore invented the internet. Any decent attorney or CPA should be able to answer any questions you have about laws and taxes for your internet business.

Thanks for all the pointers Z-5. ...This is such uncharted territory for us; I am concerned that we will build a great site only to find out we are breaking the law and don't have the proper disclosures/protection.
