Simple Will Project (Remote Opportunity)

PBN helps low income seniors draft and execute a simple estate document as well as any necessary corresponding documents to insure their real property is accounted after they pass away. Done completely from home, the attorney contacts the client to obtain all necessary information and then drafts the legal paperwork which is then returned to the legal aid organization for the client to review and sign. This is project is a partnership between Pro Bono Network (https://www.pro-bono-network.org) and the Center for Disability and Elder Law (https://www.cdelaw.org).

Why work with Pro Bono Network?

While all are welcome, PBN works primarily with attorneys who are on career breaks, stay-at-home parents, have retired, or are solo practitioners.
