Legal Counsel for the Elderly

Pro Bono Project Provides Free Legal Services

Low-income seniors in the nation's capital have access to the help they need

The Pro Bono Project enables Legal Counsel for the Elderly to provide comprehensive legal services to low-income, older people by recruiting attorneys who willingly contribute their valuable time to pro bono work. The Pro Bono Project handles approximately 600 cases annually. These cases come to the Pro Bono Project through LCE's Legal Hotline, LCE in-house staff attorneys and the Active Intake Project.
