To get help from the Elderlaw Project, call 212.382.6658.
Many of New York’s seniors are isolated and are unable to afford the legal help they need. The Elderlaw Project of the City Bar Justice Center, with the help of volunteer attorneys, provides low-income seniors with free legal services for life planning, specifically with:
- Simple Wills
- Healthcare proxies and Living Wills
- Powers of attorney
- Appointment of Agent to Control Disposition of Remains
These vital documents allow seniors to express their wishes in advance so that they can be carried out at a later date.
In addition, we hold community presentations and bi-monthly clinics at senior centers throughout the City. These clinics and forums are a source of valuable information in areas of law that are important to senior citizens.
Please note: The Elderlaw Project provides direct assistance only for the issues stated above. For all other matters, please call the Legal Hotline at 212.626.7383.
Vivienne Duncan directs the Elderlaw Project and Diane Valle is the project coordinator.
