Legal Services

The Ontario County Office for the Aging provides legal services for older adults age 60 or over through a contract with Legal Assistance of Western New York (LawNY). The program has no financial eligibility requirement; however, it is intended for those who would not be able to afford legal assistance otherwise.

This service helps low income older adults with some of the most common but daunting legal issues they face, such as Power of Attorney, Health Care Proxy, preparation of simple wills, housing evictions and landlord/tenant issues, debt, public benefits, and other areas of civil law. Prospective clients may make an appointment by calling Ontario County Office for the Aging at (585) 396 - 4040 or (315) 781 - 1321.

There is no fee for this service, but contributions are accepted.
