AARP Legal Counsel for the Elderly Add to Favorites

Since 1975, AARP Legal Counsel for the Elderly (LCE) has helped older D.C. residents by stopping foreclosures and evictions, preserving and promoting affordable housing, representing seniors victimized by scams and predators, working directly with the courts to oversee and administer guardianships, and -- by leveraging thousands of hours of pro bono help from area law firms -- producing hundreds of wills, powers of attorney, advanced health directives and other end-of-life legal documents.

More than 6,000 elders and their families are assisted annually by LCE. Each year 800+ volunteers contribute thousands of hours of pro bono service, and the monetary benefits and legal victories secured for LCE's clients averages over $10,000,000 per year. The Catalogue for Philanthropy calls AARP Legal Counsel for the Elderly "One of the best small charities in the Washington, D.C. region." LCE's hands-on, community-based efforts seek to ensure that at-risk seniors age with dignity and purpose. LCE has a longstanding affiliation and partnership with AARP, and it is one of the ways AARP gives back locally in the District of Columbia.
