It sounds like the landlord wants to resolve the issues you have. Your choices are to either return the attorney's phone call yourself, or hire your own attorney to contact the landlord's attorney.

You need to either call the landlord's attorney yourself or get yourself an attorney who will deal with the landlord's attorney. It might be in your best interest to have an attorney, as you may feel pressured by the landlord's attorney, and you may or may not know your rights in this situation. You may be at a disadvantage speaking with the landlord's attorney. You should also think about how you want the situation resolved, and have some suggestions before you speak to the landlord's attorney.
