I'm in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
I was defamed on 01/22/14 so I plan on filing a pro se document to preserve a statute of limitations. (Two years.)
The reason for this is that I need some time to find competent legal representation by an attorney who has the financial strength to represent me on contingency in that I do not possess the funds to pay for my case.

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer. Please note: This is general information only for educational purposes only, and is not legal advice. No specific course of action is proposed herein, and no attorney-client relationship or privilege is formed by speaking to an expert on this site. By continuing, you confirm that you understand and agree to these terms.

I am sorry to hear about this situation. Unfortunately, JustAnswer experts cannot take customers as clients, nor can we refer to other specific experts.

The best I can do is provide some leads for pro bono/low cost counsel in FL state. Would this be acceptable?

(Of course, you can also ask me anything else you need to in regards ***** ***** matter, itself.)

This is not an answer, but an Information Request. I need this information to answer your question. Please reply, so I can answer your question. Thank you in advance.

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.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
