Not all attorneys are necessarily familiar with immigration regulations of various countries and so if you want assistance you should look for an Immigration Agent and you could even use one in Australia, preferably a registered one.
Before you go to that step, you ought to familiarise yourself with regulations and you could start @ Professionals and other Skilled Migrants - Workers - Visas & Immigration and be committed enough to read all the applicable sections and links including what is applicable on the What's New link on that page.
For skilled immigration, it is based on having an occupational assessment so have a look at the SOL #3 or #4 and then ACS (Australian Computer Society) - Membership, Professionalism and Leadership for ICT Professionals and the ICT Community is probably where you need to look.

Thanks, I started communicating with one of the registered immigration agent. Can you please let me know following :-

1. What is the expected timeline in general (I know every case is different and can have different timeline) to get a PR from date of application?

2. If I get a PR do I need to move Australia immediately or I can wait? Do my PR expire if I don't move to Australia within some period?

Thanks, Sachin

Apart from individual cases variation, timeline will vary depending on preparation, the occupational assessment, police checks, including FBI check in the US and the particular visa you apply for, whether individually independent or through an SMP for which state sponsorship needs to be applied for which for it occupations could be the case, so you could be looking in total at somewhere around 12 -18 months or longer.

Before you go too far with an agent and pay money needlessly, you ought to read up on at least the SOL and then getting an occupational assessment.
When a visa is granted, it will have an enter by date for validation and if you do not to that, the visa will be cancelled.
