Local attorneys, notaries, and volunteers participated in the Wills for Heroes Event on October 4, 2014. The Louisiana State Bar Association’s Young Lawyer Division hosted the event for St. Tammany Fire Protection District No. 1 and Slidell Police Department first responders. Each participating first responder had the opportunity to meet individually with a licensed attorney to have a Last Will & Testament, a Healthcare Power of Attorney, and a Declaration/Living will drafted on his or her behalf without charge. Thanks to all of the volunteers approximately 35 individuals benefited from this opportunity and it was an honor to be a part of it. This is one small thing that can be done to recognize the first responders in our community. They put their lives on the line each day to protect us and it was an honor to help protect their futures. Feel free to contact me through the contact us page if you would like more information on this event.
