I recently had another very satisfying opportunity to volunteer as one of many attorneys at one of the metro area fire departments through Wills for Heroes – a service that provides free important legal documents (will, power of attorney, and health care directive) for our first responders. If you’d like to know more, see link below.
I wanted to make an entry about my great experiences with Wills for Heroes because I am so impressed with and grateful for the brave men and women who risk their lives for us every day. I also wanted to say thanks to the organization and those who run the Minnesota chapter for doing such a great job of coordinating the programs around the state. I can’t imagine how much work must be involved and how many logistics you all handle to make it possible. It’s always so well organized that all the attorneys have to do is take a seat and start drafting, while the first-responders are walked through the process and leave with their executed documents in their hands. Impressive!
If you’re an attorney, I’d highly recommend volunteering for this program and these great people. The training is excellent and the opportunities are all over the state. If you’re an interested citizen, check out the link for ways to support the efforts of Wills for Heroes. And, if you’re a first responder and would like to participate in the program, check out the link “The WFH Program” on the home page. And, thanks for your service!This blog is written by Bridget-Michaele Reischl, Attorney DECORO LAW OFFICE, PLLC www.decorolaw.com
