On Saturday, November 4, 2017 the Dayton Bar Association partnered with the Dayton Chapter of the Federal Bar Association to provide
free wills, financial powers of attorney, living wills and durable health care powers of attorney
to military veterans and their spouse or domestic partner at The Dayton Veterans
Administration Center. All clients were counseled, the documents prepared and
properly authenticated, and provided to the veterans at their appointments.
Three attorneys from Pickrel Schaeffer and
Ebeling, Christina Back, Breanne Parcels,
and James Kelleher, volunteered for this
day-long event. For the past ten years The Dayton Bar Association has also sponsored a Wills
for Heroes event at which the same legal services are provided for free to first responders in
the Police, Fire, and EMT departments from our region. Attorneys from Pickrel
Schaeffer and Ebeling who have participated in past Wills for Heroes events include Eli Sperry (7 years), John Clough, Michelle
Sundgaard, and Christina Back.
Pickrel Schaeffer and Ebeling has a long history of pro bono participation. For quite some time now, 100 % of its attorneys also participate
as members of The Greater Dayton Volunteer Lawyers Project. The attorneys are assigned cases to assist needy individuals who are below
or near the poverty level of income. These free legal services encompass many routine and unusual legal situations. The attorneys of Pickrel
Schaeffer and Ebeling willingly volunteer their time and legal talents to professionally assist veterans, first responders, and other members
of our community.
