You should contact the State Bar in your state. Many State Bars offer a low income or modest means program so people can sit down with a lawyer for a small fee for the initial consultation. The Oregon State Bar has such a program where the initial consultation cannot be over $35. Additionally, since you have a personal injury case, most personal injury attorneys offer a free consultation because they take cases on a contingency fee basis. That means that they front all of the costs of the case for you and get paid back when the case is resolved. You could try to find an attorney in your area who offers a free consultation and takes cases on a contingency fee basis. That way you would not have to pay anything until you receive your award from the defendant.

Most attorneys will take on a good personal injury case based on a contingency fee, meaning you pay nothing unless you obtain a settlement. However, if your case is not very good, you may not be able to find an attorney.

Most personal injury lawyers work on a contingent fee basis, so it matters not to us whether our clients are low income are not. Try consulting with any personal injury lawyer, asking first if they work on a contingent fee basis.
