A: You do not need a pro bono lawyer. You need a lawyer who will take your case on a contingency fee basis. Just because a criminal case is overturned does not mean you have a viable lawsuit for constitutional violations. You should consult privately with a local attorney to discuss the specific facts in order to determine whether you have a case.
