6th Annual Wills for Heroes Pro Bono Event

Naples, FL 34112

In partnership with members of the Trusts and Estates Section of the Collier County Bar Association, on Saturday, November 11, 2017, Legal Aid Service of Collier County conducted its annual “Wills for Heroes” pro bono clinic to draft wills, living wills, and related basic estate planning instruments for some of the “heroes” in our community, including local veterans, police officers, firefighters, and EMTs/first responders. The goal of Wills for Heroes is to ensure that the legal affairs of these very special clients are in order to protect them and those in their family – and to thank them for their service to our local community and country.

Legal Aid wishes to thank the many volunteers for the outstanding job they did to serve our local Heroes at the 6th Annual “Wills for Heroes.” From elderly Korean War veterans to young Sheriff Deputies with small children, volunteers prepared nearly 115 sets of estate planning documents for our local heroes and their spouses. Thank you for your passion for the cause, and your dedication and hard work!
