Center for Elder Law and Justice's Elder Advocacy Program provides free legal services to individuals 55 and over residing in Chautauqua and Cattaraugus Counties who have experienced elder abuse. Our services include needs assessment, legal representation in civil matters related to the underlying abuse, including obtaining Orders of Protection, bringing eviction and ejectment proceedings, accountings and special proceedings related to Powers of Attorney, and revocation and appointment of Power of Attorney and Health Care Proxy. The EAP also works with law enforcement and Adult Protective Services to advocate for prosecution and work collaboratively toward the elder abuse survivor's desired outcome.
