NYC Legal Outreach Kick Off

“With foreclosures and evictions on the rise and consumers increasingly saddled with debt, New York City officials are enlisting attorneys to volunteer their time for a new pro bono effort.
Approximately 40 representatives from pro bono organizations, the court system, several bar associations and city law schools gathered Monday at City Hall to kick off ‘NYC Legal Outreach.’

“…the need for attorneys to help homeowners facing foreclosure is ‘tremendous,’ said Lynn M. Kelly, the executive director of the City Bar Justice Center, which launched the Foreclosure Project in June 2008. Kelly also spoke at Monday’s meeting.”
