Steinberg Law Firm Provides Essential Community Members Pro Bono Will Clinic
Since 1927, the Steinberg Law Firm employees have honored the firm’s deeply rooted history and devoted themselves to serving those in the Charleston area in as many ways possible. To continue this effort, from November 2017 through January of 2018, our firm will be offering pro bono wills to firefighters, police officers, and emergency medical service workers (EMS).
Attorney Kelly Alfreds heads this program as a similar extension of her previous pro bono will initiative that cultivated wills for Summerville Police Officers in 2014. Also involved with the program are attorneys Kevin Holmes, Catie Meehan, and Josh Giancola who will be generating wills for community members. Steinberg’s Paralegals will also be involved and will serve as notaries and witnesses for signage of wills created during this clinic.
Attorney Kelly Alfreds and the rest of the firm have seen a dire need in providing community workers like firefighters and police officers with the proper documentation while they risk their lives at their occupation. In many cases, these community members and first responders have been found to have no existing wills or powers of attorney in their names, nor a plan for coverage of their loved ones in the unfortunate event of their death at their place of work.
This is one of the reasons we were ecstatic to have close to a dozen wills and powers of attorney when we launched this program on November 3rd. The Steinberg Law Firm Pro Bono Will Clinic will be held through January 2018. If you know a first responder in the Charleston area that may need any of these services, please contact Attorney Kelly Alfreds at [email protected]
