Lawyers to host 'Wills for Heroes' event

Local lawyers will hold a "Wills for Heroes" event Saturday, offering free wills and other basic estate-planning documents for veterans, reservists, first responders and emergency personnel.

The event is scheduled for 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the offices of Cohen & Grigsby, 9110 Strada Place, Suite 6200, at The Mercato shopping center, off U.S. 41 in North Naples.

You must be a Florida resident and present your military or service ID to participate in the event, which is being hosted by Legal Aid Service of Collier County, Cohen & Grigsby and volunteer attorneys from various law firms throughout Collier County.

The lawyers will prepare simple wills, advance-care directives and other basic estate planning documents for those who don't have them.

To participate, you must reserve a space in advance by calling Legal Aid at 239-775-4024 and provide preliminary information. Tax planning and tax advice will not be provided Saturday.
