Senior Legal Services provides free legal services to residents of San Diego over the age of 60. The basic service provided to our senior population consists of a 30 minute counsel and advice session with an attorney licensed in the State of California.
Senior Legal Services employs 4 attorneys that cover, respectively, Metro, South Bay, East County, and North County. Collectively the Legal Services attorneys see over 4000 new clients each year.
Attorneys of Senior Legal Services are able to advise about a wide range of legal issues, including financial elder abuse, landlord/tenant problems, contractual disputes, consumer issues, and benefits problems. We are also able to prepare some documents such as simple wills, Advance Healthcare Directives, and Powers of Attorney.
If your issue falls into a category that we do not handle, we will endeavour to refer you to an attorney that can assist you. We generally only refer through the Lawyer Referral Service of the San Diego Bar Association. If you wish to have trust work done, we will refer you to one of the trust attorneys that we work with.
Attorneys of Senior Legal Services generally see clients in Senior Centers located throughout the region. If you call for an appointment, you will be directed to the most convenient location for you.
