A: A South Dakota attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. You could go online and look up pro bono attorneys and legal aid attorneys. Personal injury, which is one of your chosen categories, is usually not handled pro bono. However, law firms typically handle such cases on a contingency basis, meaning there is no attorney fee unless there is a favorable settlement or verdict. Many state court systems have do-it-yourself resources for small claims court. Good luck
