Access Across America report (2011) — full report (PDF)” — In 2011, Rebecca L. Sandefur and Aaron C. Smyth authored “Access Across America: First Report of the Civil Justice Infrastructure Mapping Project” “full report (PDF)“. This report was the first-ever state-by-state portrait of the services available to assist the U.S. public in accessing civil justice. The report documents, for the nation as a whole and individually for the 50 states and the District of Columbia, five aspects of the access to civil justice infrastructure: connecting, funding, delivery, coordination and regulation. Data was gathered from October 2010 to May 2011, so parts of the report may be out of date. Still, it’s one good place to start. Ask knowledgeable people from the relevant state to confirm facts and update you on recent developments.
