Volunteers Needed for Low Asset Will Workshops - IndyBar News

IndyBar News


Posted on: Mar 19, 2015

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 at each site to do intake, conduct private legal consultations with qualified applicants, draft paperwork and witness document signing.

About the program:
New for 2015, the Low Asset Wills Program will be offered in a one-stop-shop workshop format. Members of the public will visit a site where they will:

  • Be qualified,
  • meet with an attorney,
  • and get their documents signed and witnessed.

Date: May 6 and 7, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Locations: James Wright Center (1700 N. Illinois St.) and John H. Boner Center (2236 E. 10th St.)

The James Wright Center will be open to Midtown Mental Health Clinic Patients only; the John H. Boner  Community Center will be open to the public.

Estate planning attorneys are needed but non-probate savvy attorneys will also be put to good use. Volunteers who can bring a laptop are encouraged to do so, but it is not required. Attorneys who cannot volunteer on May 6 or 7 may be needed for overflow representation following the event.

This program is sponsored by the IndyBar Pro Bono Standing Committee and the IndyBar Estate Planning & Administration Section.
