Weylie Centonzio supports Wills for Warriors program
On February 23, 2016, and March 30, 2016, Elder Law Attorney Javier Centonzio of Weylie Centonzio, PLLC participated in the Wills for Warriors program hosted at Stetson University College of Law’s Gulfport campus. The Wills for Warriors program is a partnership between Stetson University College of Law and the Community Law Program to provide free simple wills and advance directives to local low-income veterans and their spouses aged 60 or older.
The program teams volunteer attorneys with Stetson Law students who interview the participants and draft their legal documents. Once drafted, the documents are reviewed by a volunteer attorney, and then the attorney and a law student meet with the veteran and/or their spouse to discuss and execute the documents. This process is very beneficial for everyone involved because it provides a great learning experience for the law students and allows the volunteer attorneys a chance to provide pro bono legal services to very deserving clients.
This is the third year that Attorney Centonzio has participated in this program, and he would encourage any attorneys who might be interested to volunteer for this annual event. Attorneys interested in volunteering for next year’s program should contact the Center for Excellence in Elder Law at Stetson.
