    I've been searching for a while now to get a lawyer who will work pro bono on a lawcase having to do with slander by doctors. Can anybody give me some advice to where I can find one or how to go about it?

    Disseminate your story to media outlets and hope it is important enough to draw the attention of a lawyer who is passionate about whatever your plight may be. Or you could just phone around to local lawyers and tell them what happened and what you want.

    Or, and this is likely your only option, pay someone for the work you want them to do. Some lawyers take their payment from your settlement, but that means that if your case is bogus no one will take it.

    I had conversation with my doctor in his office. My visiting nurse was with me. I explained that there was no logal reason to fear having me on opiods for pain. He told me that the pain specialist at my previous clinic told the pain secialist at my current pain clinic that I violated a pain contract and that's why they didn't recommend opiods. I never signed such a contract nor did I pass a dirty urine. This same doctor once told me that I should have a limited supply of oxycodone. I told him that my PCP won't prescribe them. He said he'd talk to him himself. When he did he told him never to prescribe pain meds to me. What a pr&k. That's two lies against my character, each one keeping me in pain longer and to this day.

    Why would the media care about publishing my story? Although it did lead me to unknowingly make a bomb threat (I was merely expressing my suicidal thoiughts and was angry). I think that story made it to the paper. Not sure.
