There are a number of ways to find legal assistance in the United States. Here are a few options:
The American Bar Association (ABA) maintains a directory of local bar associations and legal aid organizations that can help you find an attorney or legal assistance in your area. You can search for a local bar association or legal aid organization on the ABA’s website at: http://www.americanbar.org/legal-resources/legal-assistance-directory.html
Legal Aid organizations provide free or low-cost legal assistance to low-income individuals and families. You can find a legal aid organization in your area by searching the Legal Services Corporation’s directory at: http://www.lsc.gov/find-legal-assistance
Many states have a Lawyer Referral Service that can help you find an attorney in your area. You can find the Lawyer Referral Service in your state by visiting the ABA’s website at: http://www.americanbar.org/groups/lawyer_referral_and_information_service.html
You can also search online directories or contact your state or local bar association for a referral to an attorney in your area.
It is important to note that the laws and legal procedures can vary significantly from one jurisdiction to another, so it is important to consult with an attorney who is familiar with the laws in your area.
