Since NY requires that real estate closings be done by an attorney or attorney-owned title company, your best bet is to continue interviewing attorneys until you find one with whom you can work.
As you’ve discovered, most attorneys will have no concept of what you’re trying to do. You might want to try to find a fairly new graduate, who is more willing to learn than perhaps some of the more entrenched folks. A good screening question to ask is whether they personally have any RE investing experience.
Don’t be surprised though, if you have to walk them step by step through what you want to accomplish, at least the first time, since very few of them have any real knowledge of creative REI.
