The Dallas Area Paralegal Association and the Dallas Volunteer Attorney Program are sponsoring a wills clinic at Fowler Christian Apartments in Dallas on Sept. 27.
Pro bono lawyers will be paired with a client seeking assistance and will have a month to communicate with the client and prepare a will. A corresponding ceremony where testators must sign the will before two witnesses and a notary is scheduled for Oct. 25.
Lawyers from all practice areas are invited to help with the clinic. Completed pro bono hours can be applied toward the ongoing State Bar of Texas Legal Access Division Pro Bono Sections Challenge as well as a Care Commitment badge on an individual’s MyBarPage. Snacks, water, and copy paper donations are also welcome.
For more information or to indicate interest in participating, contact Risa Burgess at (817) 296-8673, Mary Morman at (469) 499-6350, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The deadline for registration Sept. 22, 2014.
