Gardiner Koch Weisberg & Wrona to Provide Free Wills for First Responders

Gardiner Koch Weisberg & Wrona has announced that it is providing free wills for first responders in the COVID-19 pandemic. 

"As part of the Illinois and Wisconsin business communities, we recognize the profound damage COVID-19 has caused for the health and livelihood of those who live and work in this region," the firm said in a statement. "Our firm has greatly treasured the commitment of doctors, nurses, medical assistants, and police and fire personnel during the pandemic."

The firm is offering simple wills and powers of attorney free of charge to the first 100 first responders in Illinois or Wisconsin who contact the firm regarding this offer. 

If a first responder has a more complicated estate planning situation, the firm will provide a credit for the value of the will against the cost of the total estate plan. The firm hopes to extend this offer beyond the initial 100 applicants and will prepare a waiting list for others.  

These services will be rendered entirely via video or phone calls and electronic means in compliance with shelter-at-home rules and social distancing.  

If you are a first responder interested in this offer, please contact Natasha Erase at (312) 784-1220.
