Free Legal Help Resources
If you are a senior citizen and can’t afford to pay an attorney, or your parents can’t afford to pay attorney fees, there are a variety of other resources available that offer free or low-cost legal help to seniors and people with modest means.
Other Important Information: The American Bar Association provides a listing of state resources on their website (findlegalhelp.org) to help you find legal assistance in your area. However, if you have the ability to pay for legal advice, you may be required to do so through some of the listed resources. Many legal services organizations use the Federal Poverty Guidelines, below, to determine eligibility.
