Our History

In 2006, the then Arizona Chief Justice Ruth McGregor, set out on a mission to ensure that all seniors were aware of their rights. She had heard of a publication that was created by the State Bar of California called Seniors & the Law: a Guide for Maturing Californians and thought this would be the perfect publication to bring to Arizona. Through the diligent efforts of the Administrative Office of the Courts, the State Bar of Arizona, and the Arizona Foundation for Legal Services & Education attorneys were gathered to create an Arizona senior publication. In the burgeoning years of the internet, Chief Justice McGregor and the Administrative Offices of the Courts realized that this information also needed to be made available online to reach all seniors. With that idea in mind, the website was designed and information from the publication was used to create The official website launched on October 6th, 2006. Since that time, with the continued support from the Arizona Supreme Court, the website has been continually updated, redesigned, and expanded to ensure that seniors always know their rights.
