Volunteers Needed for Low Asset Wills Program

Volunteers are currently being sought for the IndyBar’s Low Asset Wills program, a pro bono initiative that endeavors to provide individuals in need of last wills and testaments and advance directives with free legal assistance.

Local social and legal service providers, as well as the IndyBar, advertise this program to the public. Financial applications from potential individuals to be served by the program will be accepted from January 1 until March 31, 2011.

Applications are financially screened and those qualifying will be matched with an attorney volunteer. The qualifying applicant will receive a letter with the attorney’s contact information. The attorney will receive a fax with the client’s information. The applicant will be responsible for contacting the attorney to set up an appointment.

Document templates will be provided electronically to each volunteer. Volunteers should be flexible as some of those who qualify for this program will not have unlimited access to transportation.

The time commitment is minimal–but the impact is great. Feedback shows that each client assignment takes about 3-5 hours of time. Contact Caren Chopp at cchopp@indybar.org or 269-2000 if you are interested in participating.•

  2. As one of the many consumers affected by this breach, I found my bank data had been lifted and used to buy over $200 of various merchandise in New York. I did a pretty good job of tracing the purchases to stores around a college campus just from the info on my bank statement. Hm. Mr. Hill, I would like my $200 back! It doesn't belong to the state, in my opinion. Give it back to the consumers affected. I had to freeze my credit and take out data protection, order a new debit card and wait until it arrived. I deserve something for my trouble!

  3. Don't we have bigger issues to concern ourselves with?

  4. Anyone who takes the time to study disciplinary and bar admission cases in Indiana ... much of which is, as a matter of course and by intent, off the record, would have a very difficult time drawing lines that did not take into account things which are not supposed to matter, such as affiliations, associations, associates and the like. Justice Hoosier style is a far departure than what issues in most other parts of North America. (More like Central America, in fact.) See, e.g., http://www.theindianalawyer.com/indiana-attorney-illegally-practicing-in-florida-suspended-for-18-months/PARAMS/article/42200 When while the Indiana court system end the cruel practice of killing prophets of due process and those advocating for blind justice?

  5. Wouldn't this call for an investigation of Government corruption? Chief Justice Loretta Rush, wrote that the case warranted the high court’s review because the method the Indiana Court of Appeals used to reach its decision was “a significant departure from the law.” Specifically, David wrote that the appellate panel ruled after reweighing of the evidence, which is NOT permissible at the appellate level. **But yet, they look the other way while an innocent child was taken by a loving mother who did nothing wrong"
