SeniorLAW Center is proud to open its fifth office in Pennsylvania! Its newest office is located in West Chester, Chester County and opened for business on April 1, 2019. Staffed by Attorney Susan Nolen and Victim Advocate Victoria Long, the office will provide free legal, outreach and advocacy services to victims of elder abuse 60 years of age and older, and has already been getting calls from senior citizens throughout Chester County.
The office is located at 780 E. Market Street, Suite 260, in West Chester, PA. There is plenty of free parking and an elevator in the building for easy access. Seniors facing any type of abuse can call the Chester County SeniorLAW Center intake line at 610-910-0215. Our staff will work hard to use the power of the law to help pursue protection, remove perpetrators, connect you with supportive services, assist in helping you navigate both the civil and criminal justice systems, and obtain economic relief for damages sustained by you as a result of such abuse. We are able to help with a wide variety of legal issues arising from abuse. We can also connect you with other resources, including our statewide SeniorLAW HelpLine, which is available to any senior 60 and older in Pennsylvania who may need free legal advice, information and referral for other civil legal issues, from grandparents raising grandchildren to housing, probate and other legal issues.
Sue and Victoria spent much of April traveling throughout the 760 square mile county, meeting with local law enforcement, legislators, community center staffs, and senior services partners to spread the word about the many ways SeniorLAW Center can assist seniors in Chester County who encounter financial exploitation and other forms of elder abuse. They will be representing SeniorLAW Center at various senior events over the spring and summer months, and are eager to form new partnerships and share information. Call the intake line for more information on our services and ways we can help prevent and end elder abuse. Continue to check back here for upcoming events!
