On Veterans Day, Wednesday, Nov. 11, veterans living in western Kentucky can receive a free last will and testament prepared by one of a number of local attorneys who have pledged to donate their time and experience to serve those who have served our country.

The event was organized by Hickman County attorney Jason Batts, who also serves as a Judge Advocate in the Army Reserve. “We honor our veterans and their service year-round,” he said, “and this is one more thing we can do to in recognition of Veterans Day.”

This is the eighth year Batts has organized the event, which has helped numerous veterans and their families.

Any veteran living in western Kentucky can contact Batts at 270-653-6924 on Wednesday between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. to request a free will with proof of military service. Veterans will then be put in contact with a local attorney to set up a time that is convenient to meet and prepare the will.

Participating attorneys include The Law Office of Jason Batts; Neely, Brien, Wilson & Toombs; Greg Taylor & Associates; Gregory, Easley & Ernstberger; Null, Samson & Paitsel; Prince and Brien; Whitlow, Roberts, Houston & Straub; Kemp Law Group; Major & Major; and Grumley, Riley, and Stewart.

“I simply cannot thank the attorneys who volunteer enough for their help,” Batts said.
