Q: Where can I find a good pro Bono lawyer?
My fiance is incarcerated for charges he didn't commit the other person did and he is being convicted on all charges I need help
A: Most local county bar associations have referral services that can help you with finding pro bono or low-cost legal services.
A: If you are charged with a crime/crimes that serve penalties you have a right under the sixth amendment to an attorney. If you cannot afford an attorney, one will be appointed to you at no cost if you qualify financially. Without knowing the charge/charges and your financial status, I cannot answer if you are entitled to an appointed attorney, usually a public defender.
