The Senior Citizens Law Project, headquartered in the Duluth office, provides legal advice and assistance to persons 60 years of age or older in the seven-county Arrowhead region. The project serves St. Louis, Lake, Cook, Itasca, Carlton, Aitkin, and Koochiching counties.

A major funding source for the program is from the Arrowhead Area Agency on Aging through funds received under the Older Americans Act. Although the project is required to target those in the most social and economic need, including low-income minorities and persons with disabilities, there are no specific income or asset guidelines. While there is no charge for our service, voluntary donations are welcome.

The project also provides community legal education for seniors’ groups and other groups which serve senior citizens throughout the Arrowhead region. Some of the topics include advance directives for health care, Medical Assistance rules for persons in nursing homes, and advanced legal planning. Groups wishing to request an attorney to speak at their events are asked to call 218-623-8100. There is no charge for community education appearances. Donations to the program are welcome.
