Services for seniors & their caregivers.
Navigating legal issues can be overwhelming.
Without access to the right support, dealing with legal challenges can be stressful. Many seniors are at increased risk for unequal treatment due to factors such as illness, disability, or limited finances. These vulnerable older people are often overlooked and underserved.
We make justice accessible to all seniors.
Senior Legal Services provides free legal services to qualifying individuals over the age of 60.
Our lawyers and staff are passionate about giving a voice to vulnerable seniors. Through our work in the community, we ensure seniors have access to the legal support they need to age with dignity and comfort.
