First, you can keep looking for an attorney who will take your case. You still have plenty of time to file since you have not yet received your notice of right to sue from the EEOC. There are plenty of attorneys who, for the right case, will accept your case without requesting a large retainer. Don't give up your search. Second, if the 90 days is about to run, and you still cannot locate an attorney to take your case, you can file it on your own in the Clerk's office of the U.S. District Court. They will provide you with the necessary forms. Then, once you file, you can continue your search for an attorney before you even have the Employer served with your Complaint. Good luck.

If no attorney will handle your claim because you cannot pay and you have checked into hiring a pro bono attorney, you should consider doing your research and handling the matter yourself. Employment matters are extremely difficult even with an attorney. So, unless you're willing to put in the work and learn the risks for future employment, you may want to let it go.
Here is a different point of view than what has been provided by the other responding counsel:
If you have shopped your case to multiple attorneys who actively practice in the subject matter of your case, and if none of those attorneys will take your case, then you have received the very valuable service of an expert collective evaluation and assessment of the worth and value of your case and you should pay attention to that judgment. There is never a shortage of attorneys who will take a good case. When no one wants to work on a case, it is for a financial reason -- they know it will be money and time and effort that does not pay a return on the investment. You will be doing yourself no service to stumble into court and try to learn by doing. The judge will make hash of your case in short order and you will have invested even more time, emotions and effort -- and $$$ -- for no realistic reason.
If you were going to sell your house or your car, you would pay attention to the appraisal and govern your price accordingly. You've had an "appraisal" here of your case. Pay attention.
My responses to questions on Avvo are never intended as legal advice and must not be relied upon as legal advice. I give legal advice only in the course of an attorney-client relationship. Exchange of information through Avvo's Questions forum does not establish an attorney-client relationship with me. That relationship is established only by individual consultation and execution of a written agreement for legal services.
