Access to Justice

Expanding our Assistance with Life Planning

After the success of the life-planning work related to the pandemic, the firm decided to expand this initiative. Through a new project with Volunteer Lawyers for Justice (VLJ), we are helping low-income individuals with life planning. Our lawyers meet virtually with their clients to collect all necessary materials and then draft documents that offer peace of mind to individuals who otherwise would not be able to afford an attorney to create a coherent estate plan. Volunteers throughout the firm, from summer associates to partners, have participated in this program and applied their skills and knowledge to help individuals in need of this under-recognized but important service.
