​​​Senior Advocacy Network - Senior Law Project

The Senior Advocacy Network – Senior Law Project was founded to address the legal needs of seniors throughout Stanislaus County, California. We recognize that many times the legal issue at hand may be the result of underlying health or social problems. That’s why our staff is trained to assess each person with regard to housing, food adequacy, benefits, health needs, income maintenance, elder abuse and end of life decisions such as wills and advanced healthcare directives. Our purpose is to view seniors as individuals, not simply as a legal issue to be resolved. We strive to provide services in a warm and caring environment, using a holistic rather than a single-issue approach to our assistance.

The Senior Advocacy Network – Senior Law Project is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) organization. Joyce Gandelman founded the organization in an effort to assist seniors in need who cannot afford traditional legal services.

Working with senior organizations throughout Stanislaus County since 1997, Joyce recognized the community’s need to provide seniors with better access to these services, prompting her to attend law school. In 2004, she began practicing as an attorney and championing the causes of the elderly in her community. Since 2010, the Senior Advocacy Network – Senior Law Project has been helping seniors gain access to legal counsel, low cost public housing, public benefits and much more.

Today, The Senior Advocacy Network – Senior Law Project continues to serve its mission to advocate for the health, social and legal needs of seniors.
