Good morning. ALL attorneys are encouraged to take cases pro bono, so it is not as though there is a list or website that can share with you who to contact. What a party needs to do is contact attorneys in their area and speak with them about their hardship and see if they are willing to take the case for free or at a reduced rate. The other options, depending on the matter, is to reach out to Legal Aid to help and I have provided a link below with their offices as well. There would be the two ways to get a pro bono attorney.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
