MARIETTA — The Young Lawyers Division of the State Bar of Georgia is presenting a pro bono clinic to provide estate planning services to first responders and their families on Saturday.

The event will take place at the Charles D. Switzer Public Library at 266 Roswell St., Marietta, from noon to 5 p.m. More than 70 first responders and their spouses are registered to attend and 30 volunteers will be there to assist them.

At the event, volunteers will assist first responders and their families with the “estate planning essentials” — last will and testament, durable property power of attorney and advance health care directives. These services are provided to the first responders and their families at no cost.

The service will be conducted by the Wills Clinic program, which was founded in fall 2013 by Katie Willett and Brandon Elijah, members of the Young Lawyers Division. To date, 75 volunteer attorneys have provided more than 200 hours of pro bono services, according to a release.
