Elder Law Services
Through funding from local Offices for Aging (OFA), we provide free legal advice and representation to seniors ages 60 and over on civil (non-criminal) legal matters. Our income or resource limits, do not apply when cases are verified to us by an Office of the Aging.
We handle many different legal problems for seniors, including consumer problems, family matters, access to healthcare, public benefits issues, housing problems, future planning (for example wills, living wills, health care proxies, powers of attorney, and Medicaid planning), elder abuse, and many other legal issues.
Broome, Delaware, Herkimer, Jefferson, Madison, Oneida, Onondaga and Otsego are served through OFA funding.
Seniors in Cayuga, Chenango, Cortland, Lewis and Oswego counties may also qualify for our services but must have low income and resources.
