I don’t have huge amounts of money for a lawyer. Won’t anyone take my case out of the goodness of their heart?

It is not impossible. But it is very unlikely. Think of it this way: How much of your time would YOU be willing to give? Say you’re lucky, and are putting in 50-60 hours a week as an independent businessperson. Would you willingly set aside 10 or more hours each week, for several weeks or more, and pay significant out-of-pocket expenses, to get a stranger out of a tough situation? The state will vigorously defend these laws; therefore, any challenge requires financial resources that most small law firms simply cannot provide pro bono. If you still want to try, expect to spend many hours searching for an attorney, and to get numerous rejections.
