Yes, you do have a chance, unless there is something in you background that would prevent it. Especially if they never contacted you. I don't know the specifics of the case or your particular situation, so I don't know how to really tell you much of anything useful. You need to talk to you legal aid attorney.
***Please be sure to mark if you find the answer "helpful" or a "best" answer. Thank you! I hope this helps. ******
If you already have an attorney on this, it is basically not something we should comment upon. Listen to your attorney.
