Mobile Legal Unit 

Mobile Legal Unit Bus

CELJ’s mobile legal unit is a team of experienced attorneys and paralegals that travel throughout Western New York to provide “done in a day” legal assistance, as well as information about our organization. Typically, our mobile legal unit events take place at a local community center, senior center/nutrition site, or public library. Some examples of matters that our mobile legal unit can assist with include:

            * Debt harassment and/or consumer billing concerns;

            * Obtaining and/or reviewing credit reports;

            * Health Care Proxy/Living Will Statement;

            * Tenants’ rights;

            * New Americans and Immigration;

            * Kinship care;

            * Mortgage and tax foreclosure;

            * Questions regarding open enrollment, Medicaid & Medicare;

            * Reviewing medical bills; and

            * Financial exploitation and elder abuse.

We will also provide legal health check-ups to anyone over the age of 60. Just like receiving a yearly physical from your doctor, it is important to take preventative measures to identify any legal issues before they become an emergency.
