Wills for Heroes

A program cosponsored by the PBA Young Lawyers Division, Wills for Heroes provides free basic estate planning documents to a variety of heroes, including police, fire, emergency medical personnel, other first responders, military veterans and the essential personnel we celebrated during the pandemic.  WFH provides those on the frontlines for our personal safety with the tools they need to prepare adequately for the future.
