Legal Services

Our Legal Services program is open to all HIV+ clients, who may need the following services:

  • Last Will and Testament
  • Living Will
  • Powers of Attorney (General and Limited)
  • Appointment of Healthcare Representative
  • Life-Prolong Procedures Declaration
  • Discrimination issues related to HIV+ status

In addition to drafting these legal documents, our lawyers represent a limited number of SSI (Supplemental Security Income) and SSDI (Social Security Disability Income) applicants. We can also provide informational materials to help clients understand what they can do to advocate for themselves, and our lawyers are happy to meet with clients to help them understand Social Security and the strategies for a successful benefits application.

We also provide representation for various other civil legal matters. These additional services are not covered by Ryan White, but are available on a sliding-fee scale. Ryan White and non-Ryan White clients must have pre-approval before services can be provided. Our Care Coordinators will help with this process.

Please contact your Care Coordinator to determine whether our lawyers can assist you. Don't have a Care Coordinator? Get linked to care through our Linkage to Care team.
