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 3, 2018.  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, Paralegals - A League Of Their Own, was well represented.   


  

 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.

 

 

This event could not have been more fun! Big thank you to our board members and volunteers for helping make our baseball themed booth possible. We truly "knocked it out of the park."
