Attorneys volunteer time to prepare wills for AZCOPS families

AZCOPS members and their families participated in The Wills for Heroes event July 30 in Tucson. 

The Wills for Heroes Foundation, which started in April 2007, is a charitable non-profit organization based in Tucson dedicated to providing support and services to America’s first responders and to assisting bar associations across the country with implementing new Wills for Heroes programs. Now in more than 20 states, Wills for Heroes programs nationwide have helped more than 25,000 first responders.

The estate planning service was provided to AZCOPS families at no cost by 10 local attorneys, including organizer Jeffrey Jacobson.

The Wills for Heroes Foundation was forged from the partnership of Anthony Hayes and Jeffrey Jacobson. Hayes created the Wills for Heroes program in November 2001 in response to the events of 9-11-01. The Wills for Heroes program expanded to Arizona in August 2004 where Jacobson implemented it locally.
