The LSE Helpline attorneys provide legal information and advice on many legal issues and questions that often come up for Maine seniors. LSE attorneys advise seniors about consumer debt problems, MaineCare, Medicare, housing, public benefits, Advance Health Care Directives, financial Powers of Attorney, and other civil (non-criminal) matters. LSE also helps seniors who have been taken advantage of, or mistreated by scammers, caregivers, family members, or others.
LSE helps with problems involving basic needs. LSE does not handle criminal matters, divorces, or personal injury cases.
But, if LSE can't help you, we will refer you to another legal resource, like Volunteer Lawyers Project, the Maine State Bar Association's Lawyer Referral Service, or a private attorney.
