LAE provides hope for thousands of San Franciscans in need.

Legal Assistance to the Elderly's mission is to provide free legal services to elders and adults with disabilities who are at risk of losing their housing, healthcare or income, or are victims of physical or financial abuse.  This work helps to keep San Francisco’s most vulnerable residents safe, financially stable, and housed.

San Francisco's astronomical rise in evictions is hitting our city's senior and disabled residents especially hard.  LAE provides free full-scope representation to elderly and disabled residents, many on limited incomes, who urgently need our help.

LAE is often the last chance for our clients to save a home, stop financial or physical elder abuse, or retain vital benefits. More than ever, there is an increasing need for our services.

Join us in the fight to help San Francisco's elderly and adults with disabilities live better lives.


To ensure San Francisco's seniors and disabled

adult residents have the ability to exercise their legal rights and have full access to all benefits

and services to which they are entitled. 

When eviction, elder abuse, problems with public benefits or creditors threaten, LAE is your lifeline.


For our legal service program, you must be a San Francisco resident and either age sixty or older, or age eighteen through fifty-nine and have a disability.

LAE provides advice, referrals and/or representation at no cost to eligible individuals who are experiencing the following:
