Volunteers Needed for First Responders Wills Clinic

Posted: Updated:
Augusta, GA -

The State Bar of Georgia Young Lawyers Division (YLD) is sponsoring a Wills Clinic for local first responders and their spouses on Saturday, December 14.  

The clinic is being held at the downtown Augusta Marriott from 8:00am until 5:00pm. Lawyers will offer free legal service in the preparation and execution of basic estate planning documents, including a Last Will & Testament, a General Power of Attorney, and an Advance Directive for Health Care.

Despite the inherently dangerous nature of the job, according to Wills For Heroes Foundation, approximately 80-90% of first responders do not even have a simple will. YLD volunteers from the Augusta area will serve in shifts throughout the day.  

They also need non-attorney volunteers to serve as witnesses and notaries public for the legal documents.

For more information or to volunteer, contact attorney Brandon Elijah at (706) 364-3764, or email belijah@burroughselijah.com
