Senior Legal Assistance Clinics



CDEL operates Senior Legal Assistance Clinics (SLAC) in high-need communities throughout Chicago and suburban Cook County.  At the Clinics, eligible seniors are able to meet with CDEL volunteers so that CDEL can evaluate the senior’s legal issue.  Direct legal services, including Powers of Attorney for Healthcare and Property and execution of simple wills, are also available at the Clinic sites.

The Clinics are held once a month by appointment:
