Summerville Police Department Pro Bono Wills Clinic


Summerville Police Department Pro Bono Wills Clinic

Why Do Police Officers Need Wills?

The officers at the Summerville Police Department, and any other police department or emergency response service, are tasked with an extremely dangerous, stressful work environment. While these officers risk their lives to complete their job function, many of them do not have the proper documentation in place to protect their families and loved ones in the unfortunate event of their death at their place of work.

Pro Bono Will Clinic 2018

On July 27th, Steinberg Law Firm attorneys Kelly Alfreds and Catie Meehan will draft and set up wills, and healthcare powers of attorney in the police officer’s name.

Summerville police officers are encouraged to contact Captain Doug Wright at  to sign up for an appointment

The First Will Clinic For First Responders

This will clinic acts as an extension of the Steinberg Law Firm’s first pro bono will clinic in Summerville, which took place in 2014. Through our relationship with emergency response workers and law enforcement, our firm has observed a frightening amount of vulnerable employees without wills or protective documents of any kind. This concern lead to the birth of our pro bono wills clinic.

During the last will clinic, our attorneys were delighted to provide will documentation for nearly a dozen local first respondents. The Steinberg Law Firm has been operating in the beautiful Lowcountry since 1927, where our firm launched on the mission to help underrepresented workers access the legal care, and legal resources, they need to be protected.

The Steinberg Law Firm now has three locations in Goose Creek, Summerville and Downtown Charleston.

Today, we believe part of our longevity, and amazing relationship with Charleston, can be attributed to having such an engaged, caring community for us to participate in.

Our firm plans to continue filling these essential gaps in the lives of our local first responders so our community can make forward motion, together. For questions about the wills clinic or any of the Steinberg Law Firm’s community involvement, contact Yani Smith at
