All staff are working and accessible remotely. Those needing our services should contact us by phone at:

Please see resources on our website with more information for older adults in these uncertain times. Join us in making extra efforts to ensure the older people in our lives are safe, healthy and connected.

Access Services


Who We Serve

SeniorLAW Center serves older Pennsylvanians, 60 years of age and older.  We are pleased to offer a variety of programs and services to protect the rights of seniors.

The Pennsylvania SeniorLAW HelpLine is available for seniors living anywhere in the 67 counties of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.  Legal advice, counseling, information and referral services are available through the HelpLine.

Please note that at this time we can provide extended individual legal representation, including court appearances, to Philadelphia residents only.

To promote the autonomy, independence and dignity of our clients, we always seek to speak with the senior him or herself, NOT a third party.
