Enhanced Services Program (ESP)
SeniorLAW Center’s legal services also include a program of affordable legal services for Pennsylvania residents age 55 and older. Our low fee Enhanced Services Program (“ESP”) serves residents of Philadelphia, Bucks, Chester, Delaware and Montgomery counties, providing assistance with preparation of personal planning documents, including simple wills, powers of attorney and advance health care directives (“living wills”), as well as probate and administration of modest estates, including those that involve the sale or transfer of real estate in the five-county area.
With its Enhanced Services Program, SeniorLAW Center uses its decades of experience and expertise as lawyers for seniors to provide legal representation and services to an additional population of Pennsylvanians — those living on modest fixed incomes [up to 325% of the federal poverty guideline ($37,000 annually for an individual)] for a reduced fee. The goal: to address the needs of those who are neither served by traditional legal aid nor by private legal professionals, whose cost is out of reach for many consumers. Providing services at an affordable cost will enable these consumers to address important legal issues in their lives. All fees return to SeniorLAW Center to support its many free services that protect the rights of older Pennsylvanians.
The ESP program can also provide services to those who are not able to travel to an attorney’s office due to serious illness or disability. Language access services are also provided as part of SeniorLAW Center’s commitment to the diverse communities of this region.
