Writing Wills for Heroes
Since 2015 the Lycoming Law Association has been sponsoring a local "Wills for Heroes" event. On March 23, 2019, the event returned for another successful session.
Nearly 30 attorneys and paralegals participated in the event. Sixty local firefighters and veterans were served during the session.
Individual consultations were scheduled throughout the day at the Old Lycoming Fire Hall. Each attendee who scheduled an appointment met with an attorney, and most left with a will, living will, or health care power of attorney.
The event is part of a national program that began after many first responders from the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks died without wills or estate planning for their families. Each year since the service was initially offered in Lycoming County has seen more participants - both attorneys and those served.
