A message from Legal Assistance for Seniors New Executive Director, James Treggiari.

Dear Friends and Family of LAS, 

After six years of exemplary service, Francel D'Andrea has decided to retire and move on from LAS (although she will always be with us).  LAS will miss her commitment and leadership as she moves onto her next adventure.  

It is with great excitement that I introduce myself as the new Executive Director of Legal Assistance for Seniors.  For those of you who do not know me, I have been a staff attorney at LAS for the past five years, leading the elder abuse team for the past year. 




March 2015: Legal Assistance for Seniors (LAS) is the proud recipient of a 2 year grant from the Walter S. Johnson Foundation (WSJF) to support our Kinship Caregiver Research and Planning for Alameda County. This project will be a collaborative effort between LAS and Family Support Services of the Bay Area (FSSBA). We express our deepest gratitude to WSJF for their generosity and support.
