Law firm to host free estate planning clinics for Holocaust survivors

International law firm Greenberg Traurig will host a free estate planning clinic today for Holocaust survivors.

The law firm, which has offices in Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade counties, held a similar clinic in suburban Ft. Lauderdale earlier this month.

The clinics were planned in conjunction with Dr. Stanley and Pearl Goodman Jewish Family Services of Broward and Ruth & Norman Rales Jewish Family Services, Inc.

Today’s event is not opened to the public. It will be held at Century Village in Boca Raton.

Greenberg Traurig attorneys from the firm’s Fort Lauderdale, Boca Raton and Miami offices will help the Holocaust survivors prepare estate planning documents, including wills, health care advance directives, and durable powers of attorney. The event is part of an ongoing program of clinics for Holocaust survivors that the firm continues to host throughout South Florida.

“In keeping with Greenberg Traurig’s long-standing commitment to giving back to the community, we are proud to provide pro bono estate planning clinics to help some of our community’s most vulnerable members – Holocaust survivors,” Fort Lauderdale Trusts & Estates Shareholder Parker F. Taylor said. “There is a serious need to help aging Holocaust survivors assemble the critical legal documents they need to legally protect their estates and we are proud to offer our legal support.”
