Legal aid for Brooklyn State Supreme Court ????

Posted by John on September 16, 1999 at 18:40:38:

My LL has been trying to evict me since Jan 29th, we retained an Att. and have had his complaint dismissed in the lower courts.
We live in an illegal 4 family dwelling as a month to month tenant.
He has now started an ejectment proceeding in the State Supreme Court. The Att. we had retained now wants an additional $1500 retainer,
he states "It's supreme court", Even though he has done a good job, I can't afford this at this time, and wanted to know if there are any agencies or groups that can provide legal aid.
And if so how do I get in touch with them ?

We want to move, but the new place will not be ready to until early November. Is there any other recourse ?

Thanks in advance,
