Estate Planning and Administration News


Posted on: Sep 13, 2018

Low-income individuals are more likely to die younger and without wills or advance directives in place—but you can help!
 
Attorneys, paralegals
and law students are needed as volunteers to do intake, conduct private legal consultations with qualified applicants, draft paperwork and witness document signing. Estate Planning attorneys are needed but non-probate-savvy attorneys will also be put to good use. Have a notary license? You're needed too!
 
Attorneys who cannot volunteer on October 16 may be needed for overflow representation following the event.
 
The Free Wills Clinic will be offered in a one-stop workshop format. At both locations, members of the public will:

  • be qualified
  • meet with an attorney
  • get their documents drafted signed and witnessed

 
Free Wills Clinic details:
Tuesday, October 16, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
John Boner Neighborhood Centers and Indianapolis Public Library Haughville Branch
 
Ready to make a difference? Contact Arnetta Scruggs at ascruggs@indybar.org to volunteer.
 
This program is sponsored and planned by the IndyBar Pro Bono Standing Committee.
