Maine Legal Services for the Elderly

Did you know your residents may be eligible for assistance from Maine Legal Services for the Elderly?  Maine residents aged 60 and older can call the Legal Helpline to get free and confidential help with legal problems.
The Helpline Attorneys provide information and advice on a wide variety of non-criminal legal problems including:
  • Medicare/MaineCare,
  • Health care coverage disputes
  • Elder abuse and protection orders
  • Housing issues including eviction and foreclosure,
  • Consumer debt
  • Public assistance benefits
  • Guardianship
  • Discharges
  • Powers of Attorney and Health Care Advance Directives
They also offer a specific unit, for anyone who is Medicare eligible, assistance with Medicare Part D if they are having trouble getting or affording prescription drugs.
 LSE has attorneys located in offices across the state that provide legal representation in some situations. If LSE can't help, callers are offered referrals to private attorneys, potentially at reduced fees.
