A: An Alaska attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. As a starting point, here is a link to the Alaska Bar Association page - Pro Bono Legal Service Providers

This is not an endorsement of entities or law firms on that list - you'll need to speak with them and learn the exact details of their terms. You could also look into legal aid societies and organizations. In terms of the Personal Injury category, law firms do not generally handle personal injury matters pro bono. However, personal injury law firms nationwide generally work on a contingency basis. That means no attorney fee unless a favorable outcome, and no fee until the end of the case - you could reach out to firms to try to arrange a free initial consult to discuss their particular contingency terms. In terms of criminal law representation involving financial need, there is the Public Defender's Office. Good luck
