Utah's Senior Legal Helpline

PHONESCAM.JPGAre you 60 years old or over? Do you have a legal problem? Did you know there is a free legal service available for you by telephone?

Utah's Senior Legal Helpline is a toll-free, statewide legal information, advice, and referral service for Utah residents 60 and over. You can call 1-800-662-1772 between 9:00 am and 2:00 pm, Monday through Friday to get help in the areas of consumer issues, elder abuse, estate planning, housing and public benefits.

Rather talk to someone in person? Some senior centers offer free in-person legal clinics. In Salt Lake County, contact your local senior center to schedule a 20 minute consultation with an attorney. In Roosevelt, there is a free legal clinic held the second Wednesday of each month, 3:00-5:00 pm, at the Roosevelt Senior Center, 50 East 200 South. In St. George, you can make an appointment to speak with a volunteer attorney at the St. George Senior Center, 245 North 200 West, by calling 435-634-5716.

Of course, there are free legal clinics offered throughout the state, many of which aren't limited to those over 60. A complete listing is provided on the courts' Legal Clinics, Agencies & Organizations page.
