Q: What type of attorney should I seek for housing discrimination that is not a protected class under the fair housing law?

I was discriminated against in Georgia based on source of income but this class is not protected under the fair housing law in GA. Is it a personal injury attorney I should seek?

A: A Georgia attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. Personal injury attorneys tend to deal more with physical injury matters involving insurance. You could search for attorneys with experience in civil rights and housing discrimination. It looks like you're already on the right trail with your selection of categories. You could ask law firms if they work with the Fair Housing Act and applicable state legislation. In addition to your own searches, you could use the Find-a-Lawyer tab. Additionally, most state bar associations also have sections to help the public find attorney referrals. Good luck
