This clinic partnership came about because a transgender sibling of ours named Candy passed away in 2020. The events surrounding her death started a conversation about who one would want to speak on their behalf in the event of a crisis or untimely death. This is a crucial conversation for anyone who has experienced family alienation.
During these clinics, volunteer lawyers will meet remotely with eligible clients to discuss which estate planning documents (living wills, last wishes, advanced directives, etc.) are needed. They will help navigate individuals through the appropriate legal processes to designate specific decision maker(s). Following the initial consultation, the lawyers will draft the appropriate documents.
Because of the generosity of volunteer lawyers, CLSMF is able to reach more clients and provide much needed services to vulnerable communities. Clinics are a simple way to give back to the community and impact someone’s life.
