Thank you for your question.
I am afraid state law forbids anyone from this site from representing any customer of the site. Furthermore, attorneys charge $250 per hour, it is unlikely you will find any attorney to handle a $500 case and also attorneys do not take cases in small claims. The whole purpose of small claims is it is the "people's court" where there are no attorneys used. Sorry, but you will not get an attorney for this type of case for only a $500 claim unless you are willing to pay their hourly rates.
