Wills for Heroes Assists Nashville First Responders

Volunteer lawyers in Nashville assisted 95 first responders and their families with wills and other end-of-life planning at a Wills for Heroes clinic this past weekend. The event, held at the Metro Police North Nashville Precinct office, was coordinated by Nashville lawyer Chip Howorth with Smith Cashion & Orr and Clarksville lawyer Brad Carter, chair of the TBA Young Lawyers Division's Wills for Hereos Committee. The YLD has served more than 300 police, firefighters and EMS personnel so far this year. Since the project began in Tennessee in 2008, more than 2,000 heroes have received free wills to protect their families. Learn more about the project. Photos by Stacey Shrader Joslin
