    Join us in supporting Wills for Seniors!

    Wills for Seniors clinics are a coordinated effort between the Delaware State Bar Association (DSBA), Delaware Volunteer Legal Services (DVLS), and Delaware Paralegal Association (DPA), designed to provide free legal estate planning services to eligible senior citizens in Delaware. Senior citizens meet with volunteer attorneys who draft a basic will, advanced medical directive, and power of attorney. These documents are prepared onsite, executed, and finalized the same day.

    Volunteers are needed for notarizing, witnessing, and if necessary, drafting assistance. Breakfast & lunch are provided.

    Event runs from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. Two shifts are available for volunteering: 10:00 am to 1:00 pm or from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm. You may sign up for one, or both shifts.

    Remember, for every 3 hours of legal-based pro bono work, you receive 1 DPA CLE credit towards renewing your DCP certification.

    The Wills for Heroes clinics provide essential legal documents free of charge to our nation’s first responders, including wills, living wills, and powers of attorney. By helping first responders plan now, they ensure their family's legal affairs are in order before a tragedy hits.

    These documents are prepared on site and executed the same day.

    We need volunteers to assist as witnesses (18 years of age and older) and Delaware notaries to assist with the execution process once the documents are prepared.

    There is a MANDATORY two hour training for all new volunteers from 9:00 to 11:00 am. Two shifts are available and volunteers may sign up for one, or both shifts:

    11:30 am to 2:30 pm or 2:30 pm to 5:30 pm

    Morning refreshments and lunch will be provided to volunteers.

    Remember, for every 3 hours of legal-based pro bono work, you receive 1 DPA CLE credit towards renewing your DCP certification.
