Nelson Mullins, McAngus Offering Free Wills to First Responders
Monday, September 9, 2013

RICHLAND COUNTY, SC - Attorneys from Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough and McAngus Goudelock & Courie will be providing free estate planning to Richland County first responders on Wednesday, September 11, at the law firms' offices at 1320 Main Street. The services are offered through the Nelson Mullins Wills for Heroes program

"While no one likes to think about estate planning, it is critical that first responders have their affairs in order to make sure their loved ones are taken care of," Sheriff Leon Lott said. "We are grateful for the time and effort the lawyers, paralegals, and other employees of Nelson Mullins and McAngus, Goudelock & Courie are dedicating to ensure first responders make these important preparations."

"Nelson Mullins has only become stronger over the years in our commitment to provide free wills to our local heroes," said Nelson Mullins' Michael Anzelmo, a coordinator of the wills program. "We are pleased to partner with volunteer attorneys from McAngus Goudelock & Courie and look forward to providing as many wills as we can on Sept. 11."

"We are excited to partner again with Nelson Mullins in this wonderful service provided to our first responders," added James R. Courie, managing partner of McAngus Goudelock & Courie. The two law firms joined forces for similar events last year.

BACKGROUND: The events of September 11, 2001, serve as a stark reminder of the extraordinary sacrifices made by firefighters, police, and emergency medical technicians every day. First response personnel devote their lives to serving their communities and are prepared to pay the ultimate price in the line of duty. In an effort to show appreciation for their efforts and sacrifices, Nelson Mullins attorneys offer the Nelson Mullins Wills for Heroes Program. The program offers first response personnel free will preparation services. Since the program's inception, Nelson Mullins attorneys have provided thousands of free wills.
