Wills and Lawyer For West Virginia Heroes
Charleston, WV — The Young Lawyers Section of The West Virginia Bar, headquartered in Charleston, West Virginia, has created a Wills for Heroes program for our fire fighters and police officers who put their lives on the line for us every day. Volunteer attorneys draft wills, medical power of attorneys, and durable powers of attorneys for first responders for free – see, lawyers are not all bad:-). Statistics show that many folks do not have wills or any other form of estate planning.
When a loved one dies without a will, a tragic loss becomes even more difficult for survivors to bear. Creating a will is a way to continue to offer support to our loved ones after we are gone. There are a number of reasons why many resist creating a will, including facing the difficult prospect of death and fearing that a lawyer will cost more than they can afford. Wills are generally not that expensive, and fortunately, for our police officers and fire fighters, an attorney will prepare their will at no charge.
