Will Clinic reaches out to Redmond police officers

The Washington First Responder Will Clinic recently helped police officers in Redmond with estate-planning documents.

The clinic, a program of the Washington State Bar Association Young Lawyers Division, was held at the Redmond Police Department and was offered free of charge to Redmond police officers and their spouses or state-registered domestic partners.

About 45 volunteer attorneys worked with 60 clients — 34 of which were first responders — to prepare their estate-planning documents, which included wills, powers of attorney and health care directives.

This was the program's 19th clinic and its first in Redmond. The clinic was so well-received that all available appointments were filled in less than half a day. Because of the high demand, the program is planning to return to Redmond next year.

To date, the Washington First Responder Will Clinic has assisted nearly 1,000 officers and their spouses or domestic partners throughout the state. For more information, visit
