Do I need a lawyer to complete the appeal process?
You have the right to represent yourself or have a lawyer, family member, or friend represent you at the Administrative Review and or at the Fair Hearing.
If you would like to talk to a lawyer who will represent you for free, you can call any of the following places to see if they can help you. There is no guarantee that you will be able to get legal help. Even if you do not get legal help, there will still be a Fair Hearing held and a decision made.
