Crenshaw : City-Sponsored Legal Aid

August 05, 1993

As part of a city-sponsored program to bring free legal aid to those who cannot pay for it, a team from the nonprofit law center Bet Tzedek will visit the People Coordinated Multipurpose Senior Center on Aug. 24.

Bet Tzedek, "The House of Justice" in Hebrew, specializes in the problems of the low-income, elderly and disabled, such as SSI, Social Security and other government benefits, landlord-tenant problems, nursing home problems and consumer fraud. Its attorneys and paralegals give information and advice, and, if necessary, represent senior citizens at trials, administrative hearings and appeals. They visit multipurpose senior centers throughout Los Angeles.

To be eligible, a person must be at least 60 years old and demonstrate economic need. Information and appointments: (213) 294-5226.
