Help for those low on funds who need to prepare wills

From The Akron Beacon Journal, Friday, Septemeber 28, 2012:

If you’ve been thinking about preparing a will but haven’t gotten around to it due to your bleak financial picture, you may want to call the Volunteer Legal Services Program (VLSP) of Community Legal Aid.

“Its volunteer attorneys can provide assistance at an upcoming Will Clinic for low-income members of the community who wish to prepare simple wills, living wills, powers of attorney and power of attorney for health care,” said Ashley Heeney, director of development/communications at Community Legal Aid Services Inc. in Akron.

“The next Will Clinic in Summit County will be held the week of Oct. 15 during regular business hours in downtown Akron. This is not a walk-in clinic. Details about the date, time and location will be provided when you call the HelpLine at 1-800-998-9454 to register if Legal Aid determines you are eligible for the service.”

For more than 60 years, Community Legal Aid has been the primary provider of free, civil legal services to low-income residents in central Northeast Ohio.
