The Elder Justice & Civil Resource Center ("The Center") is a court-based resource center for seniors, located at Philadelphia City Hall, to provide services for persons age 60 and over involved in legal proceedings or in need of legal services or resources.
The Center addresses the unique needs of this growing population by offering the following:

The Center Staff may provide information to all parties in a case, but cannot act as your attorney.
