Many courts reserve court appointed counsel for cases on which the defendant will face prison or jail time. You should fill out the court appointment forms, if you have not done so already.

You can contact your local legal aid office. If they can't represent you, they may be able to suggest someone who will represent you.

Also contact your local Bar Association. They may be able to suggest a lawyer who practices in the area of law for the crime you are charged with.
