New York State birth certificates - need lawyer

Hi Everyone,
I've exhausted every route to getting my grandfather's and great grandmother's birth certificate in New York State. I want to hire a lawyer, but I'm not sure how to go about it. I contacted the New York State bar association in Albany and they were not able to refer me to a lawyer that had any knowledge about this. Does anyone have a recommendation for a lawyer they used to get the court order in NYS? Alternatively if you have managed to do it yourself I would appreciate some advice. What area of law is this? Immigration doesn't really sound right.
Thanks,
Jennifer
