Thank you for drawing attention to the challenges that legal services lawyers face in our efforts to help low- and moderate-income homeowners avoid foreclosure. One point in the article does merit correction, however. While a lack of resources does force us to turn away many deserving clients who could otherwise save their homes, we have not stopped taking new cases. Our hotline, through which we provide advice to hundreds of homeowners in New York City, was briefly closed this fall, but has since been reopened. If any of your readers wish to help or learn more about what we do, they can find information on our website.
