What type of financial matter?
Typically, in small claims court, parties represent themselves. However, if you wanted to retain counsel, you could. If both parties are entitled to half the money, then there should be no reason one party is demanding 2/3, without a basis to support it. This is a civil matter, so a civil litigation attorney would need to be hired. While it involves a check, it needs to be known why the party wants 2/3 and the basis they are using to claim it.
