My response:

Such a letter "could" help, but it's highly doubtful. I must presume that you have already asked friends and reletives for money, and have come up blank.

In California we have the following rule:

"Loans During Representation Permissible: After the attorney has been employed, he or she may lend money to the client for any reason, based on the client's written promise to repay the loan." [Ca Professional Conduct Rule 4-210(A)(2)]

If your State has a similar rule, ask your attorney if he is willing to loan you some funds. You may be required to sign a promisory note and put up some collateral for the loan. If you are thinking that your case, itself, can be collateralized - - it can't.

Good luck to you.
