Wills for Heroes

Wills for Heroes (WFH) is a program under the auspices of the Pennsylvania Bar Association Young Lawyers Division, with the support of the PBA Pro Bono Office. The PBA Wills for Heroes program now solely sponsors WFH in Pennsylvania with the Dec. 31, 2023, closing of the National WFH Foundation. The PBA provides free basic estate planning for first responders and military veterans.

Programs are staffed by lawyer and other volunteers and are conveniently offered to heroes at convenient community sites.
