Center for Elder Law & Justice Response to COVID-19

The Center for Elder Law & Justice has been closely monitoring local, national, and global reports on the evolving impact of COVID-19, and we are taking precautionary measures to keep staff and clients healthy.

In order to adhere to County and CDC instructions, we are suspending all outreach activities, and client home or other out-of-office visits through April 10. This date may be extended if necessary. Our legal teams have the capability of working with clients through Zoom conferencing, and as of right now, we are still meeting clients in our Buffalo, Lockport, and Dunkirk office conference rooms.

We are being vigilant about our sanitation efforts, and are cleaning each space in between meetings and visits. Staff is also being instructed on best practices to stay healthy, and are being advised to stay home or work remotely if feeling unwell.

Our mission is to advocate for Western New York’s most vulnerable, and we are concerned with keeping our clients safe from harm’s way. If you are feeling sick, please call your attorney and let them know that you wish to meet with them via phone or web, or reschedule your appointment.

At this time, we are open during our regular hours, Monday through Friday from 9am-5pm. However, some of our units may be unable to accept new cases. Our Free Senior Legal Advice Helpline is open to answer your quick legal questions. Adults age 60 and older can call 1-844-481-0973, Monday through Friday from 9am-11am.
