Where There’s A Will There’s A Way
How We Provide Free Wills to Firefighters in the Age of COVID-19
It’s been our mission to provide free Wills and Health Care Proxies to active and retired firefighters, and to our clients in the 9/11 community. We’ve done over four thousand to date. We do this, because having a Will is one of the most important things that you can do for your loved ones. When the pandemic hit, we realized that we had to figure out how to continue to provide this service, in a way that would not endanger the very people we’re trying to protect.
We had some help from Governor Cuomo who signed executive orders permitting remote Will signings as well as remote notarizations. We used Zoom, FaceTime, and Skype to meet with our clients the way we previously had in our office. We prioritized Wills for our sickest clients, and worked through connectivity glitches, face masks and the social distancing of witnesses. As a firm, we have learned that we can quickly adapt to meet the needs of our clients, and to serve the firefighting community.
If you need a free Will and Health Care Proxy, please get in touch with us. We look forward to the day when we see you and your loved-ones back in our office, inperson, for your free Wills and Health Care Proxies. In the meantime, we’ll see you on Zoom.
