Pro Bono - Wills for Heroes


TBPA paralegals have partnered with the Hillsborough County Bar Association, in conjunction with the national Wills for Heroes Foundation, to ensure the success of the Wills for Heroes program for Hillsborough County, Florida. 


The Wills for Heroes programs provide essential legal documents free of charge to Hillsborough County’s first responders and their spouses or domestic partners, including wills, health care advance directives and durable powers of attorney. Qualified first responders include firefighters, police officers, paramedics and corrections and probation officers from federal, state, county, city and town departments and agencies. By helping first responders plan now, they ensure their families' legal affairs are in order before a tragedy hits. The Wills for Heroes Program is supported by the Hillsborough County Bar Association and donations from the community.

The Wills for Heroes Program always welcomes new volunteers.

For more information on how you can participate, please email our Pro Bono Chair.

Pro Bono & TBPA


 5K Pro Bono River Run and Pig Roast


The annual 5K Run and Pig Roast was held on Saturday, March 11, 2017.  It was another beautiful, sunny day for this event. 


The event was established years ago to promote and support pro bono legal services in Hillsborough County.  The event continues to grow.  Local judges, attorneys, law students, paralegals, and friends of the legal community participate by pledging pro bono hours and/or contributing to pro bono projects.  

Booths are free and TBPA's booth, Paralegal's Rock, was well represented with board members, President, Dana Martinez-Jones, First Vice President, Elaine Schroeder, and Directors, Jan Brown, Rebecca Wilt, and Carrie Tonski, and TBPA members Joyce Parris, and student members, Amanda Ramos and Katrina Sweeney.  



TBPA gives a HUGE SHOUT OUT to PUBLIX SUPERMARKETS who gave TBPA a gift card to be used for the purchase of the absolutely yummy cookies we served at our booth. 


This project took a lot of time and planning and everything from setting up the canopy and the booth and decorations, to tear down was done as a team.  Who says Pro Bono can't be fun?  It was an amazing and wonderful team effort.



Thanks to everyone who made March 11th a "Rock'n and Roll'n Good Time."
