Free Legal Workshops for Seniors in Voorhees


The Camden County Surrogate and the Freeholder Board’s Division of Senior & Disabled Services will hold a series of free legal workshops for senior and disabled residents throughout the month. The sessions will be held at the Camden County Store, located on the second level of the mall at Voorhees Town Center, Somerdale and Burnt Mill Roads, Voorhees.

“Those who attend the session will have the opportunity to receive legal advice on a last will and testament, an advance directive for health care also called a living will and a power of attorney,” said Camden County Surrogate Patricia Egan Jones. “Anyone interested in attending one of the sessions must call the County Store at 856–566–2920 to save their spot.”

Participants are required to be Camden County residents aged 60 and over. Disabled citizens must be aged 18 and over and residents of Camden County. Workshops are limited to 35 participants per session and pre-registration is required. To register, please call 856–566–2920.

Those attending this workshop receive, at no cost, a last will and testament, an advance directive for health care (living will) and power of attorney. No other topics will be addressed by these workshops.
