I am sorry you are the victim of personal injury and discrimination. I think what you are asking is not "where do I go to search for an attorney," but rather, how to find the right attorney.
The right attorney, in my experience, is one that provides you with guidance, time, and understanding. If you contact lawyers, you should gauge how much attention the lawyer (not his/her assistant, staff, paralegal, etc.) gives you. Unfortunately, many lawyers are overwhelmed with work, and are not able to give clients personalized attention. However, a good relationship between lawyer and client is always important, and leads to lessen the chance that there is a disconnect between the client's expectations and the outcome of the case.
My recommendation is that you consult with 3-5 lawyers, and see which one you like best. You can do consultations over the telephone or in person, or video-conference, if the lawyer has a sopihisticated law office. Consultations should be free, and for this type of case, you should not be expected to pay for costs.
I have represented numerous personal injury and discrimination clients. If I can be of help, let me know. My contact information is below.
