PS&E Attorneys Help Veterans and First Responders

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.
