I am not reattaching it, beause that would take up a good bit of space on the website server.

In response to a question from one of our staff about clients calling to say thay have not been able to reach BNI, Legal Aid received this response:
We have a new, all digital phone system that has presented us with many challenges, including this perception by our target audience. The phones, however, are working.
