Legal Counsel for the Elderly (LCE) has a phenomenal staff that personally impact and uplift the poor elderly residents of Washington, DC. Beyond that personal interaction, LCE goes one important step further, by identifying systemic issues that are essentially obstacles to elderly residents living their best lives. Equally important is the fact that some of the most successful attorneys and law firms in the city provide their services pro bono to LCE. Priceless!
