Legal Help Within Reach Clinic: Wills and Powers of Attorney

Volunteers are needed for the first Legal Help Within Reach Wills and Powers of Attorney Legal Clinic. Through this clinic, attorneys from the Quad Cities area will travel to Sterling, Illinois to provide critical estate planning services to low-income seniors through a discrete pro bono opportunity.

PILI will provide transportation from from Rock Island to Sterling, Illinois. There will be a CLE training in Deere’s West Office Building on Friday, March 29th from 9:00 to 11:00 a.m. with a refresher on the bus on the way to the clinic. Lunch will be served the day of the clinic.

Thank you to co-sponsors Deere & Company, Lane & Waterman, Riley Safer Holmes & Cancila, the United Way and YWCA.
