You may represent yourself or you may hire an attorney to represent you. (State Civil Service staff cannot represent you.) If you choose to hire an attorney, you are responsible for paying his or her fees. If you are successful in your appeal, you may be awarded up to $1500 in attorney's fees. If you cannot afford an attorney, you may qualify for free legal help. Refer to the following websites for more information.
