You want to retain an attorney in the State where you reside, so that they are familiar with the rules and laws and can act on your behalf and in your best interest. As far as attorneys that help seniors, if you are unable to afford counsel, you can contact your local legal aid office or see if an attorney would take the case pro bono or at a reduced rate.
