A: Make an appointment to meet with your appointed lawyer in person to go over the evidence. You are legally entitled to an attorney if you cannot afford one, just not an attorney of your choosing - unless you pay for the attorney yourself. You are unlikely to find a private attorney to take on your case pro bono. But the good news is that your appointed lawyer is licensed, and qualified to handle your matter, and has an incentive to work on your case, because they will be paid to do so. Good luck.
