Some local or state bar associations run volunteer lawyer programs that provide free or low-cost legal advice to qualifying individuals. Sometimes you have to establish need, i.e., show that you cannot afford to pay a lawyer, and sometimes the programs only offer certain types of advice, e.g., fair debt collection, wills, etc. You'll have to contact your local bar association to see what is available in your area.

Don't know specifics of your situation, but you may want to contact your state insurance department first. Describe your problem, and perhaps they can give advice on how to proceed. If the insurance issue you have is clear-cut, and the insurer is clearly in the wrong, let's say, perhaps they could even help you directly. I don't know, but it may be worth checking out. Good luck

Edited to add: Your state insurance department may have a toll-free consumer assistance line, I know that my state does. That would be a good place to start.

This thread is now in the Personal Finance (Not Investing) forum (legal, insurance). I retitled the thread for clarify.
