Senior Legal Services

Senior Legal Services (SLS) opened its first office in 1972 to help the elderly, who were historically unable to obtain legal aid services that addressed their unique problems.

Our organization provides free legal services to elderly residents of Santa Cruz and San
Benito counties.
