Chattanooga Lawyers to Provide Free Wills for Emergency First Responders

This article was originally published in the Hamilton County Herald.


The Tennessee Bar Association (TBA) Young Lawyers Division (YLD), in conjunction with dozens of local attorneys, will be drafting free wills and other basic estate planning documents for first responders employed within Hamilton County and their spouses on Saturday, Jan. 16 from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. at Chambliss, Bahner & Stophel. Qualified first responders include active, retired, and volunteer firefighters, police officers, paramedics, corrections, and probation officers from federal, state, county, city, and town departments and agencies.

The event is being held in cooperation with the national Wills for Heroes Foundation, whose program provides free wills and other basic estate planning documents to emergency first responders and their families. It has been the primary public service project of the TBA YLD since 2008. To date, the program has served nearly 3,000 Tennesseans and their families, and hundreds of lawyers have volunteered their time to the program.

Appointments are required. To schedule an appointment, contact Alex McVeagh at (423) 757-0237 or amcveagh@chamblisslaw.com. Chambliss, Bahner & Stophel is located at 605 Chestnut St.
