Public Interest Law Firms in NYC - I Need Help/Legal Advice
« on: April 20, 2004, 10:07:47 AM »
Hi all, I need some help. Thanks for all who can direct me to the right place.

My girlfriend has some debt problems. The creditors are calling on a daily basis and harassing us. She was using a debt consolodation service and everything was going fine. However, due to a clerical error, the service neglected to pay one of the companies she owes money to, and that company subsequently severed the relationship with her debt consolodation company.

She is trying to get back on the debt consolodation service but is getting many conflicting answers as to why the creditor will not accept a new proposal.

We need to find a public interest law firm that will make her aware of/help protect her rights as a debtor and also inform her of the creditor's legal responsibilities to their debtors.

Does anyone know a firm we can go to that provides this type of legal service at a low cost? We have very little money, and barely have enough to keep us going. Bills are due and the debt keeps piling up.

Any info will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
