How Can Senior Legal Aid Help Solve These Problems?
Any needy senior West Virginian, aged 60 or over, can call our toll-free number (1-800-229-5068). You never have to come in to our office; we can serve you from your home by telephone.
We will ask the senior a few questions (name, address, phone number, birth date, etc.) and schedule a time for an attorney to call the senior back that day.
When the attorney calls, he/she will figure out what legal solutions we can try to solve the problem (Legal Information, Legal Advice, Legal Advocacy). If you need to go to court, we can try to find an attorney in your community to represent you for free.
We respect the independence, dignity, and autonomy of senior West Virginians. That is why the senior who needs help should call us, not a friend or family member. If the senior wants us to talk to someone else on his/her behalf, all they have to do is call us and tell us that. We will not talk to anybody else about your case unless you give us permission to do so. We respect your privacy and will keep your information confidential. Thank You!
