New York Bar Association and Fed Team Up

“Last May, the New York Fed teamed with The Association of the Bar of the City of New York on a pilot program that would let big-firm lawyers help residents facing foreclosure. At the time of its launch, the program, called the Lawyers Foreclosure Intervention Network ( LFIN), stressed waivers for firms that represent financial institutions; the expectation was most of the lawyers would come from such firms. But a year later, the program’s participants are largely solo practitioners and small firms, with only a couple lawyers from large firms.”
