Are you a senior in need of legal
advice, counsel, or advocacy? El Dorado County offers general civil legal
services to county residents 60 years of age or older through the Senior Legal
Services office. Individuals can meet with an attorney to get legal advice,
solve problems, mediate disputes, prepare legal documents, and be represented
in specific types of elder abuse issues.
The Senior Legal Services office is
located in the Placerville Senior Center, and is open from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30
p.m. Monday through Friday. The staff also travels around the county to see
clients in South Lake Tahoe, El Dorado Hills, Cameron Park, Greenwood, and
Pioneer Park, and will visit disabled seniors in homes and care facilities to
offer legal assistance. Additionally, Senior Legal Services provides a wealth
of self-help materials and legal educational programs on topics of popular
interest to clubs, retirement groups, and other senior organizations.
There is no charge for the services
provided through Senior Legal Services. The program is funded through the Older
Americans Act as well as the county and through generous donations by clients
and their families. To make an appointment, please call (530) 621-6154. For more information about Senior Legal Services in El
Dorado County, visit www.edcgov.us/humanservices.
