Orange County YLS supports first-responders

In a show of appreciation to Central Florida first-responders and veterans, the Orange County Bar Young Lawyers Section recently hosted a Wills for Heroes event.

Dozens of local attorneys and other volunteers were available to assist with the creation of essential legal documents to ensure that the legal affairs of first-responders, veterans, and their families are in order for the future, including wills, trust and estate plans, advance directives, and powers of attorney.

“Over the past year, the Central Florida community has seen its share of adversity. Our attorneys want to give back, in our own way, to show our local law enforcement, veterans, and other first-responders that the communities they protect value them,” said Brett Renton, president of the Orange County Bar YLS, adding the event was also supported by The Florida Bar Young Lawyers Division, the Orange County Bar’s Estate, Guardianship and Trust Committee, and the Orange County Bar.
