Legal Support

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.

For Unpaid Caregivers

Caring for your aging loved one can be overwhelming.

They may be dealing with Alzheimer’s, suffering from injuries, or struggling to find health coverage. It can be difficult to manage everything.

Our team will help you protect your loved one and ensure they have access to the legal support they need.

Legal Support


Understand the problem.

We begin by listening to the client and learning about their challenge. When we dig deeper, we often uncover important context. Our team is committed to getting to the root of the issue.


Provide Legal Advice.

Our elder law attorney walks the client through their options for resolving the issue. We make complex legal concepts easy to understand so the client can make an informed decision.


Advocate For Justice.

Many issues can be resolved without escalating to litigation. If a client needs to go to court, we’ll provide the support or connect the client to the right representation.
