Rachel Ziegler of Studio 17 speaks with Yarnell Sherrell JD and Kassie Mullican of Greater Bakersfield Legal Assistance (GBLA) to learn more about one of their twenty-one programs and services offered, the Seniors Law Center.

GBLA’s Seniors Law Center is a project dedicated to providing civil legal services to the 60+ community.

Services include assistance with powers of attorney, advanced health care directives, landlord-tenant issues, financial abuse, elder abuse and neglect, and assistance with public benefits, including application for benefits and appeal denials.

GBLA also assists with other civil legal matters on a case-by-case basis.
Additionally, they also have the Grandparent Guardianship Project which helps grandparents – or other close relatives – obtain guardianship of children up to the age of 18. This allows them to have the legal authority and responsibility to make decisions regarding the protection, education, care and discipline of the children in their care.
