    You might check with your local or state bar assoc. for a possible referral to a low cost/no cost attorney, local legal aid society or a law school in your area if there is one.

    @Betty3 gave a good answer but I think that you'd have to have a compelling case to get any free legal assistance, especially with an appeal. After a court has ruled on the merits you'd probably need to convince someone that the court has made a mistake which warrants the assistance. Be prepared for that question as (a) you'll not find a sympathetic ear without it; and (b) your appeal will never be successful making the appeal effort moot.
