Legal Services Assistance

Arizona's Legal Assistance Program was established under the federal Older Americans Act to offer information, advice, assistance and advocacy to persons 60 years of age and older.

The goals of the program are to promote and preserve the autonomy, dignity, independence and financial security of older persons, provide access to the system of justice, and advocates for the preservation of the rights and benefits of older persons.
