Get Free Legal Help With Writing a Simple Will

Western Reserve Public Media and Leave a Legacy Summit/Portage/Medina sponsor Write a Will Day on May 10

NORTHEAST OHIO – Monday, April 4, 2016 – Community members can get free legal help with writing a simple will at Write a Will Day, to be held on Tuesday, May 10, at Western Reserve Public Media, 1750 Campus Center Dr., Kent. Attorneys from Roetzel & Andress, LPA, and Stark & Knoll Co., LPA, will prepare the simple wills as a free community service. Appointments, which will last about 45 minutes, are limited and reservations are required.

“We are pleased to partner once again with Leave a Legacy Summit/Portage/Medina in sponsoring this event,” said Paula Mastroianni, chief development and marketing director at Western Reserve Public Media. “In addition, we are grateful to attorneys Steven Cox of Roetzel & Andress and Greg Bean of Stark & Knoll for so generously providing their time and expertise.”

Western Reserve Public Media, Roetzel & Andress and Stark & Knoll are all partners of Leave a Legacy, which is a regional collaborative effort to encourage people to make a bequest or planned gift to their favorite charitable or nonprofit organization.

A simple will does not avoid probate and does not avoid estate taxes. It is prepared with the assumption that one’s net assets, including life insurance, do not exceed the current estate tax exemption. For more information or to make a reservation, call Western Reserve Public Media at 1-800-554-4549.
