IS IT NORMAL TO PAY LAWYERS FOR THE VERY FIRST CONVERSATION?

Fellow Searchers, I am interviewing lawyers for help with the purchase agreement and one of them asked me to pay their hourly rate just to speak with me to figure out if we could work together.

Is this common? Would you still speak to the lawyer and think of the payment as a call option and as a way for him to weed out people looking for free advice or would you walk away?

Thank you.
