To commemorate 9/11, two Columbia law firms provide free wills for first responders

September 11, 2013 

Lawyers with two Columbia law firms helped first responders prepare their wills, free of charge, in a show of appreciation on Wednesday's anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.


More than 300 Richland County sheriff’s deputies got free estate planning Wednesday, as two local law firms marked the terrorist attacks on the United States.

Lawyers with Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough, along with McAngus Goudelock & Courie, did the work through the Wills for Heroes program to help first responders.

The two firms joined forces for similar events last year, preparing free wills to firefighters, police and emergency medical technicians to show appreciation for their sacrifices, according to a corporate news release.
