South Alabama VLP - Success Story

August 29, 2016
Your IOLTA Participation with ACJF – helped a heart patient prepare an advanced directive and a will before having heart surgery.
Just this past June, the South Alabama Volunteer Lawyers Program, supported by an ACJF grant, was able to assist a client that needed an advanced directive and a last will and testament prepared before a scheduled heart surgery. He was promptly given a volunteer attorney and was able to schedule a meeting within three days to have the needed legal documents prepared. The SALVP – with the support of lawyers that volunteer their time and expertise – provides a vast array of services to those in need of legal assistance in Mobile, Clark and Washington Counties.
