SeniorLAW Center is an independent 501(c)(3) legal services agency founded in 1978 as Senior Citizen Judicare Project by members of the Philadelphia Bar Association. Its original focus was to protect the legal rights and interests of Philadelphia’s needy, elderly residents through a volunteer-driven program. It has since grown to have an array of programs and services, a diverse staff of lawyers and advocates, and has expanded its outreach and services to communities throughout Pennsylvania.
Through the efforts of its dedicated and experienced legal staff and volunteers from Pennsylvania’s legal community, SeniorLAW Center today serves approximately 10,000 older Pennsylvanians each year, including victims of elder abuse and financial exploitation, elders facing housing crises and homelessness, and grandparents raising grandchildren. Since its founding in 1978, SeniorLAW Center has provided free legal representation for over 50,000 seniors, focusing on the most vital and recurring legal problems facing our elders: housing, elder abuse, financial exploitation, consumer problems, grandparent custody, personal and end-of-life planning needs.

The Life Planning Clinic is part of the section’s initiative to increase pro bono opportunities for its members and promote engagement among section members. The event is open to all PBA members.
