Please see my response to your other question thread. Unfortunately, hiring an attorney to represent you simply is not cost effective for small claims court because the cost of paying an attorney to take your case your case to trial would likely cost close to what the maximum potential award is.

If you adamantly want legal assistance, you may wish to consider paying for what's called "unbundled" legal services, which would be where an attorney helps you with specific aspects of your case but is not your attorney of record. For instance, an attorney might be able to help you draft your complaint, and you would then submit it in your own name.

You would simply want to call local attorneys and ask if they are willing to provide "unbundled" services. Most attorneys are not, due to liability concerns about helping but not having total control over a client's case, but some attorneys do provide this service and so it's worth a shot.
