About Senior Advocacy Network

The Senior Advocacy Network is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization. Founded by Joyce Gandelman, the organization helps seniors in need of legal assistance who cannot afford traditional legal services. 


The Senior Law Project

The Senior Law Project provides legal services to residents of Stanislaus County, CA who are 60 years of age or older. Services are free or low cost with no income requirements. 

Trained Staff

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 regarding housing, food adequacy, benefits, health needs, income maintenance, elder abuse, and end-of-life decisions such as wills and advanced healthcare directives.


Seniors Are Individuals

Our purpose is to view seniors as individuals, and not merely as a legal issue to be resolved. We strive to provide services in a warm and caring environment, using a holistic approach rather than a single-issue approach.

Friendly & Empathetic Services

Our mission is to advocate for the health, social, and legal needs of seniors. One of our friendly and caring staff members will be happy to answer all your questions and help you get started.
