Marilyn Harp, Kansas Legal Services executive director, will be hosting an Elder Law Hotline orientation and refresher talk from Noon-1 p.m on Thursday, March 6, 2014. Please join all or part of this conference call to learn more about the hotline and volunteer opportunities.
Elder Law Hotline is a project of Kansas Legal Services. Hotline attorneys answer questions in civil cases for Kansans age 60 or older. Cases may be referred to a local Senior Citizens Law Project attorney or a private attorney through the Elder Law Panel organized cooperatively with the Kansas Bar Association. The hotline addresses the increasing need for quality elder law services in a largely rural state. Considering the limitations on both physical and geographic mobility, a statewide hotline service is an effective method for delivering legal services to elderly Kansans. In 2009, the KBA gave its annual Pro Bono Award to the Elder Law Hotline. This award recognizes a lawyer or law firm for the delivery of direct legal services free of charge to the poor or vulnerable.
