For over 40 years we have believed that living independently and with dignity is the hallmark of justice.

Over the last 40 years CELJ has remained dedicated to the aging community of Western New York as we provide unparalleled expertise and legal representation to those over the age of 60. Our clients, most of whom live in poverty, need us to protect their income and keep them safe.

With each donation, no matter the amount, you make a difference.
