Matthew Hayes is an attorney with the Milwaukee office of Legal Action of Wisconsin, Inc.  Since 2006, Matthew has been the Project Director of SeniorLAW, a program of Legal Action that provides free legal and public benefits advocacy services to individuals age 60 or over, residing in Milwaukee County.  SeniorLAW represents clients in cases that involve public benefits, housing, unemployment, and consumer issues.  Before joining SeniorLAW, Matthew represented clients in paternity actions through Legal Action’s Child Support Project, worked at the Elder Law Center of the Coalition of Wisconsin Aging Groups in Madison, and was a staff attorney at a domestic abuse service provider in Jefferson County.  
Kelsey Leopold is a staff attorney with Legal Action of Wisconsin’s Elder Rights Project since graduation (a little over three years). The Elder Rights Project represents individuals 60+ who are victims of crime with civil legal needs. A big part of this work is working with individuals who have been financially exploited by Financial Powers of Attorney.
