Geoffrey “Geoff” Scovil practice habeas corpus law in Albuquerque, New Mexico. A graduate of Case Western Reserve University School of Law, he has been a solo practitioner for more than 20 years. When he’s not busy protecting the rights of his clients, Geoffrey “Geoff” Scovil helps his Albuquerque community by supporting such organizations as the Senior Citizens’ Law Office (SCLO).
Since 1983, SCLO has provided free legal services to people over the age of 60 who live in Torrance, Bernalillo, Valencia, and Sandoval Counties. In addition to these free services, the organization also helps individuals complete their estate planning for a reduced fee. The estate planning services offered by SCLO include simple wills, simple probates, and transfer on death deeds. These services are primarily offered to residents over 60 in the above four counties, but SCLO also works people under the age of 60 in other counties for a slightly higher rate.
For people in Sandoval, Valencia, Bernalillo, and Torrance counties who are 60 years old or older, the cost of a setting up a simple will is $200 for a single person and $300 for a couple. This price increases to $260 and $360, respectively, for people under the age of 60 and people living outside of SCLO’s four-county area. Meanwhile a transfer on death deed costs $100 each, as does a Quit Claim deed with estate planning, for people in the organization’s four-county area.
