Free legal advice for senior citizens, families on Thursday

Another year brings another day of free legal and financial advice in Westchester County for senior citizens and their families.

The 12th Annual “Senior Law Day” will take place at the Westchester County Center  in White Plains. From 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., residents can attend two of 18 workshops – including two in Spanish – offering advice on estate planning, income tax laws and other laws affecting older residents. Among the new topics this year will be an update on how New York’s new Marriage Equality Act impacts planning for same sex and unmarried couples. Elder law attorneys and certified public accountants will offer free 15-minute one-on-one consultations.

To sign-up for Senior Law Day, call (914) 813-6400 or register online
