A list of other legal aid providers in DC can be found here: http://www.lawhelp.org/DC/StateDirectory.cfm

If your income is too high to qualify for legal aid but you still can't afford to hire an attorney (which would cost in the neighborhood of $1000-$1500 to file a Chapter 7 bankruptcy), there are also bankruptcy petition preparers online (or in your community) that will fill out the Chapter 7 paperwork for you for something like $200-$250. However, petition preparers won't be able to represent you in court or help you if any problems arise in your case, as they are not attorneys.

 


Finally, here's a link to what the D.C. Bankruptcy Court recommends that you do in order to find an attorney: http://www.dcb.uscourts.gov/dcb/pro-se-f

 

Please let me know if you have any additional questions. Thank you.
