Even if it is as simple as you make it out to be, minimum starting rates for any regular ol structural engineer are in the $1,000 dollar range.
By the time they design your reinforcement and investigate enough to be comfortable stamping the plan (which makes engineers personally criminally liable should anything go wrong), you are atleast into the low thousand dollar range. Good luck getting someone (worthwhile) to do it for a dinner.
