    Legal Services for Older Adults in Utah
    Many older people experience problems that threaten their autonomy, dignity, health, income, rights, and security. Many of these problems can be avoided or remedied by legal intervention.
    Sometimes older persons may not realize the problem they are facing is a legal one. Other times, an older person and/or a caregiver may know he or she needs a lawyer's help, but doesn't know how to get a lawyer, or is afraid of the cost of a lawyer.
    Legal assistance and education is available to persons in Utah 60 years of age and older, and in particular those seniors in the greatest social and economic need. Whenever possible, legal services will be provided free of charge and in a language you understand.

    Legal Services
    LSC is the single largest funder of civil legal aid for low-income Americans in the nation. Established in 1974, LSC operates as an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation that promotes equal access to justice and provides grants for high-quality civil legal assistance to low-income Americans. LSC distributes about 95 percent of its total funding to 135 independent nonprofit legal aid programs with more than 900 offices throughout the nation. LSC promotes equal access to justice by awarding grants to legal services providers through a competitive grants process; conducting compliance reviews and program visits to oversee program quality and compliance with statutory and regulatory requirements as well as restrictions that accompany LSC funding; and by providing training and technical assistance to programs. LSC encourages programs to leverage limited resources by partnering and collaborating with other funders of civil legal aid, including state and local governments, IOLTA, access to justice commissions, the private bar, philanthropic foundations, and the business community. The Corporation is headed by a bipartisan board of directors whose 11 members are appointed by the President and confirmed by the Senate.
