: Talk to someone at MFY legal services at 41 Ave. A. Their number is 475-8000. You can also get advice from Met. Council 693-0550. There's also a group called Community Action for Legal Services (431-7200).
Mary thank you for the info. I called the numbers you provided and all
led to one source MFY. MFY requires that you earn under $7000.00 a year
they will accept you as a client. The trouble is almost all the tenants
being taken to court earn above the limit. We still need some other source.
