“Legal Services for Seniors provides legal services at no charge to Monterey County residents 60 years of age and older with an emphasis on the socially and/or economically needy.”
Since beginning their “Education is Empowerment” series last year, Legal Services for Seniors has provided educational workshops to attorneys and other professionals as well as providing more than 200 community members with legal tools to protect themselves. These educational workshops present legal information on topics ranging from financial elder abuse to estate planning, landlord/tenant regulations, home ownership and consumer law protections. Advocates have given these workshops in local libraries, community centers and everywhere seniors and the community meet. That translates to more than 15 locations throughout Monterey County from King City to Prunedale.
The panelists are so well prepared! I walked away with a wealth of knowledge on ways to protect myself from financial elder abuse, and can’t wait for the next workshop.
