In 2007, Attorney Emily Durham (then general counsel, AVB Companies) and Attorney Shaun Willis (partner, Willis Law) teamed up to bring the “Wills for Heroes” program to Michigan. With the support of attorney Michael Willis and paralegal Jayme Jones, the Kalamazoo attorneys established this pro-bono affiliate program in Michigan.
Annually, Willis Law attorneys come together to help the first responders who serve us every day. Volunteer Willis Law attorneys will provide estate planning documents to members of the Kalamazoo County Sheriff’s Department, free of charge.
Wills for Heroes is an opportunity for attorneys to give back to the first responders who protect and serve their communities every day. The program will launch in Michigan with the first event being held in collaboration with officers from the Kalamazoo County Sheriff’s Department and volunteer attorneys. Sheriff Richard C. Fuller, III, has worked closely with Durham and Willis to bring this program to the Department for the launch in Michigan.
The Wills for Heroes Foundation works nationwide with affiliate organizations to provide free wills and other estate planning documents to America’s first responders, including police officers, firefighters and paramedics. Since November 2001, the Wills for Heroes program has provided more than 7,000 estate planning documents nationwide. Attorneys Anthony Hayes and Jeffrey Jacobson oversee the Wills for Heroes Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit. Donate to join us in “protecting those who protect us”® at www.willsforheroes.org.
