The Houston Bar Association’s Elder Law Committee will sponsor a Will-A-Thon to provide simple wills and basic medical directives, free of charge, for senior citizens 60 and over, disabled persons, and veterans of any age who meet the low-income guidelines.
To apply for assistance through the Will-A-Thon, you must call 713-228-0735 between the hours of 9 a.m. and 3:00 p.m., by March 31, to complete a screening application over the phone. To qualify, applicants must be Harris County residents who are either over 60, disabled or veterans, and they must meet the Houston Volunteer Lawyers’ low-income guidelines.
Those who qualify will be given an appointment to meet with a volunteer attorney on April 5th at the Tidwell Park and Community Center, 9720 Spaulding, 77016. The documents will be completed and executed on May 3, 2017 at the same location.
