Here is a previous essentially identical question with answer which might help:

No Angies List category for something that high - google the following search phrases to find contractors in your area to handle your job, then you could cross-check those names on Angies List to see if the companies are listed in some other category, though not likely - you are almost certainly talking a commercial light bulb replacement company for this.

One other recommendation - while the potential energy savings might seem great, I really recommend against LED light bulbs - I have tried a dozen or more brands and have yet to find one which exceeds 20% or the promised life - and the only one who exceeded 15% went out of business because while their bulb lasted better they were also more expensive to make. CFL better, especially for bulb that are never turned off - but turn them on and off several times a day and their life quickly drops to more like 20-40% of promised life. However, bare spiral CFL bulbs have the drawback of blowing out the spiral and spreading glass and mercury below - so if you choose CFL's I would use only the enclosede flood-type, where the spiral is inside a protective glass housing that looks much liek a regular track/flood bulb.

One other thing that is new, and I have found the one brand I am testing is actually doing very well, is a Lightstory filament LED bulb - sort of a hydrid of LED technilogy and regular filament bulb where the LED's are arranged on a "popsicle stick" arrangement so it resembles a filament bulb - the ones I am testing in two chandeliers (candelabra bulbs) are doing better than 20% of rated life with no failures so far, so looking good - but no telling how they will perform in the long run. They are incredibly low power - producing 60W equivalent incandescent light output on 4W (though advertising states they are 6W).
