I need some legal advice or representation. How can I find an attorney who specializes in elder law issues?

Federally funded legal programs for people 60 and older (known as Title IIIB legal services programs) can provide legal assistance on a variety of issues. 

These include income security, health care, long-term care, nutrition, housing, utilities, protective services, defense of guardianship, abuse, neglect, and age discrimination. Legal assistance is targeted towards older individuals in social and economic need. Each program has its own priorities and eligibility guidelines regarding case acceptance and areas of representation.

Your senior legal aid program may be located at your local legal services program . You can also find out about your local legal assistance programs by contacting your area agency on aging .
