Tennessee Alliance for Legal Services (http://www.tals.org) helps low income Tennesseans find legal resources to deal with civil issues. Those who cannot afford a lawyer can call 1-844-HELP4TN (1-844-435-7486) and leave a message any time. Calls are returned by a licensed Tennessee lawyer.
TALS also operates http://www.HELP4TN.org a website that provides legal information about a variety of topics, including bankruptcy, divorce, domestic violence, health/disability/health insurance, public assistance/benefits (includes Social Security Disability and Veterans' Benefits), wills/financial planning, and other topics.
TALS provides email legal assistance through the website, http://www.onlinetnjustice.org. At that website, you can email a lawyer to talk about your civil legal issue. This is a free service. First, you will give some details about yourself. These details will be used to see if you qualify for the help. Then you'll post your civil legal question so a lawyer can offer legal advice and information about your issue - all by email.
Justice for All - A Tennessee Supreme Court Initiative provides a website (http://justiceforalltn.org/resource/legal-clinics-tennessee) that identifies legal clinics throughout Tennessee.
