In these hard financial times, the need for legal help among low-income New Yorkers has become a crisis. According to a New York Times report of court data, 99 percent of tenants are unrepresented in eviction cases in New York City, 97 percent of parents are unrepresented in child support matters and more than 60 percent of homeowners in foreclosure cases attend the state’s mandated settlement conferences without the benefit of legal counsel.
