WELCOME TO THE CENTER FOR ELDER LAW & JUSTICE
We provide free civil legal services to seniors, people with disabilities and low-income populations in nine Western New York counties. Our goal is to protect the essentials of life, such as housing, income, access to health care and protection from abuse.
Our services are funded in part by the Erie County Department of Senior Services, the NYS Office for the Aging, and the Administration on Aging.
