Spotlight on: Volunteer Attorney Kathleen Day-Seiter

A trusts and estates and elder law attorney with a law practice located in Orinda, Kathleen Day-Seiter (“Kass”) staffs pro bono CCSLS’ monthly “Free Wills Clinic” at the Martinez Senior Center.  She received her B.A. from U.C. Riverside, her Masters of Social Welfare with a specialization in gerontology from U.C. Berkeley, and her law degree from Rutgers University.  She worked as a medical social worker for over twenty years advocating for the needs of the elderly and disabled in both California and New Jersey prior to becoming an attorney.  Kathleen has volunteered for 7 years at San Francisco Legal Assistance to the Elderly, as well as volunteering for CCSLS.  She is fluent in German and founded the Rhinegold Women’s Investment Club in Kehl, Germany, where she lived for six years.  She is a past-president of the Oakland Lacrosse Club, a non-profit organization for youth lacrosse, and served on the board of Artemis Rowing, a non-profit rowing club for juniors.  CCSLS is pleased and honored to have the special skills of Kass Day-Seiter available for our senior clients at the Martinez “Free Wills Clinic.”
