Elder Law Services

Through funding from local Offices for Aging, we provide free legal advice and representation to seniors ages 60 and over on civil (non-criminal) legal matters. There are no income or resource limits.

We handle many different legal problems for seniors, including consumer problems, family matters, access to healthcare, public benefits issues, housing problems, future planning (wills, living wills, health care proxies, powers of attorney and Medicaid planning), elder abuse and many other legal issues.
