Advocating safety plans and implementing care plans on behalf of older victims in Bucks County who have been victimized by financial exploitation and other various forms of abuse.

WHY DO YOU WORK AT SENIORLAW CENTER?

I enjoy that our services can be the next step to helping seniors with legal issues allowing them to be that much closer to them feeling free from abuse and financial exploitation. I get to wake up in the morning to help seniors in need no matter how small or big the issue is. The smallest things for this population could mean the most to our clients, which makes every day of my job inspiring.

I enjoy the appreciation and thanks that I receive from helping a senior no matter how small of a role I might play in getting them the help they need. I find great joy in knowing I was a part of that process. I get the opportunity to work with such passionate and inspirational group of individuals that do so much for seniors.
