Legal Services

 

The legal services component of the Onondaga County Office for Aging’s Community Services for the Elderly (CSE) Program is a partnership with The Legal Society of Mid-New York, Inc. Through its Older Americans Unit, it provides legal assistance to residents of Onondaga County who are age 60 and older for:

              • Entitlement issues
              • Utility problems
              • Wills and living wills
              • Health care proxies
              • Power of attorney

 

Through funding from local Offices for Aging, they provide free legal advice and representation to seniors ages 60 and over on civil (non-criminal) legal matters. There are no income or resource limits. 

 

They handle many different legal problems for seniors, including consumer problems, family

matters, access to healthcare, public benefits issues, housing problems, future planning (wills, living wills, health care proxies, powers of attorney and Medicaid planning), elder abuse and many other legal issues.
