Approximately 92,000 seniors in Washington live on incomes less than $11,770 per year.

Your support of the WSBA Elder Law Section’s Peter Greenfield Senior Advocacy Summer Internship can make a difference for these seniors. Peter Greenfield worked tirelessly on behalf of low-income seniors during his career with Columbia Legal Services (CLS).

To honor Peter’s advocacy for vulnerable seniors and his active involvement in WSBA, the Elder Law Section established a summer internship at CLS and a fund with the Washington State Bar Foundation to sustain it.

The Peter Greenfield Senior Advocacy Summer Internship supports a summer internship each year, rotating students from each of Washington’s three law schools. Interns provide advocacy and research that supports the systems reform that was the hallmark of Peter Greenfield’s work, while learning the broader themes of elder law.
