In the midst of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and for the duration of the Declaration of Emergency, the Frontenac Law Association (FLA) is announcing an initiative for local frontline and essential service workers with respect to obtaining wills and power of attorney documents at a “pay what you can afford” fee with a participating local lawyer.
It is the belief of the FLA Executive that this “pay what you can afford” will and power of attorney initiative will assist the public in this time of stress and need.
Members of the public who are frontline and essential service workers who wish to have wills or power of attorney documents completed should contact a lawyer participating in this initiative listed below.
Those with questions should contact FLA President, Warren WhiteKnight, at 613 384 5886 or firstname.lastname@example.org
