Seniors invited to free legal clinics

If a senior citizen's legal problem is beyond the scope of the attorney's knowledge or is too complicated to solve during the session, the attorney will help the senior find additional referral sources for answers to their questions.

"In this day and age just to have legal knowledge and information is a great thing, and we're really excited about it," said Bern-Smith. "I think the key to all of this is to plan early so that you're not left without having papers in place and you're not left with having your loved ones trying to figure out what your wishes are, what needs to be done and what your financial situation is."

The dates, locations and times of the legal clinics are as follows:

Monday, Nov. 10, at 12:30 p.m. at the Duanesburg Community Center

Wednesday, Nov. 12, at 11:15 a.m. at the Scotia-Glenville Senior Center

Thursday, Nov. 13, at 11:15 a.m. at the Mt. Pleasant Senior Meal Center

Monday, Nov. 17, at 11:30 a.m. at the Schenectady County Jewish Community Center

Friday, Nov. 21, at 11:15 a.m. at the Ten Eyck Apartments

For information, or to pre-register for any of the clinics, contact Susan Ripley of the Catholic Charities of Schenectady County at 346-1852, ext. 2.
