Nov 03, 2015, 11:46 ET from Cohen & Grigsby

NAPLES, Fla., Nov. 3, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Business law firm Cohen & Grigsby will show its gratitude for veterans and other local heroes by hosting the 4th annual "Wills for Heroes" event in honor of Veteran's Day at the firm's Naples office located at The Mercato 9110 Strada Place, Suite 6200, on Saturday, Nov. 7, 2015. During the event, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., Legal Aid Service of Collier County and local attorneys will prepare simple wills, advance care directives, and other basic estate planning documents at no cost for veterans, reservists, first responders, emergency personnel and their spouses who do not currently have these documents. The goal of Wills for Heroes is to ensure that the legal affairs of these very special people are in order to protect them and their families - and to thank them for their service to our local community and our country.

"It is an honor for Cohen & Grigsby to join Legal Aid Service of Collier County and our volunteer attorneys to give back to the men and women who have sacrificed so much for this country and our community," said Kelley Geraghty Price, partner, Cohen & Grigsby. "Since our first 'Wills for Heroes' event in 2011, we have helped hundreds of veterans, emergency personnel and their spouses, and we are grateful to have this opportunity to thank them for their service."

Attendees wishing to receive services at the "Wills for Heroes" event must be Florida residents with a military or service ID. All qualified applicants are welcome; however, it is recommended that anyone seeking services register in advance by completing the registration form on Legal Aid's website: www.collierlegalaid.org/wills-for-heroes. There are limited opportunities for these services, and given the expected high attendance at this year's event Legal Aid cannot guarantee that attendees will be able to receive services on Nov. 7 if they have not registered in advance and provided the necessary information. Thus, preference will be given to those who have registered in advance. To RSVP for this event, call (239) 298-8138 or email Logan Meester at lmeester@legalaid.org no later than 3:00 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 4, 2015.
