Cyrus, this is a very useful site. I am going to bookmark it.
What i would like to see is more of this, and more not just for low income people but middle income people in situations where they are losing their homes etc from some of the horrors we have in South Florida known as homeowners associations. I spoke with a single mom with a 9th grade education and she took on what looks like a RICO case and she won - but she had help from a neighbor who showed her how to research. THe judge wrote that the Association was a "sham" and the assessments and mulltiple foreclosures illegal. This is a flip scam where an association becomes taken over by the property manager (who was indicted and convicted as a city commissioner)....then bleed the association dry.
by going into a mostly paid off but run down community and take over. Ram an association down these people's thoats, then start foreclosing - most of these elderly people. They are taking away their homes - homes they had paid off. These people do not have the resources to fight the "free market" - eg those who want to land snatch and redevelop. They need a large firm willing to do pro bono work.
