Additionally, several employees at Stock and Leader joined volunteer attorneys, paralegals, and event staff assisted in preparing (free) estate planning documents for first responders, veterans, and their significant others throughout the county.
This annual event known as “Wills for Heroes” provides those on the frontlines of personal safety – police, fire, emergency medical personnel, and other first responders – with the tools needed to prepare for their future.
After the 9/11 attacks, the Wills for Heroes Foundation established the “Wills for Heroes” program to provide first responders and veterans with fully executed, witnessed, and notarized wills, living wills, health care and financial powers of attorney, free of charge.
In 2010, the York County Bar Association’s Young Lawyers Section launched the Wills for Heroes program in partnership with the Wills for Heroes Foundation, the Wills for Heroes Pennsylvania, and Leave a Legacy® York County. To date, 539 veterans, police officers, firefighters, other emergency services personnel, and their significant others have received this important legal service.
