A: Please. You do not need a lawyer; and you will never get one to take your case "pro bono." Why? Because proving that you "...truly believed the check was good" does not somehow make the check good.

FYI: Whenever a check you deposit bounces you must repay all the money the bank lost, plus pay whatever returned item fees and OD fees charged by the bank.
