If you need a pro bono attorney in your area you can search for one. Here is a resource from the American Bar Association:
Also try Catholic Charities Immigration Legal Services,
Be sure that anyone you speak to has done immigration and understands family based petitions.
Finally some on Avvo provide low cost or free consultations.
Best of luck
