Philadelphia’s SeniorLAW Center holds a free clinic Friday, June 22, 2018.

Philadelphia seniors in the midst of an eviction can find an attorney to represent them in court and know their legal rights through a Friday, June 22 elder law walk-in clinic, sponsored by SeniorLAW Center.

SeniorLAW Center is offering a free walk-in clinic for senior tenants aged 60 years old and older who face emergency landlord/tenant issues. The walk-in clinic will be held at SeniorLAW Center, Two Penn Center, 1500 JFK Boulevard., Suite 1501, Philadelphia, Pa., on Friday, June 22, from 9:30 a.m. — 12:30 p.m.

Attendees at the Friday walk-in clinic will receive free legal advice and information, and intake for full representation for eligible clients. No appointment is needed.

Seniors who have a forthcoming court date, who have received a written notice to move, reside in unlivable conditions, who have L&I violations, or whose landlord has shut off their utilities should come in for this clinic, said Karen C. Buck, executive director for SeniorLaw Center, based in Center City.
