A: I would contact your local Legal Aid Society. I'm not sure where exactly you are in Tennessee, but the folks in my area (Bradley County) use Legal Aid of East Tennessee. If you cannot find a Legal Aid Society, I would contact your local Bar Association and ask for lawyers that are doing pro bono work.
