Do I need an attorney to represent my case in reference to my brother's petition?

Mililani, HI |
Filed under: Immigration

My petition for my brother was approved in 1990 even though I gained citizenship through adaption,however, he was denied visa during a recent interview (20 Oct. 2013) because the interviewer believes that it wasn't legal (though it was before 1990, a bases for their approval) and that the length of separation (23 years) no longer validates our relationship as biological brothers. As I pursued their case over the last 23 years, I didn't received any letter of denial from National Visa Center, stating my petition were invalid or denied because of my citizenship gained through adaption. Please advise.
thank you..
