Law Firm Offers Free Estate Planning For Vets


DES MOINES, Iowa — At some point, everyone should have a plan in place for their passing. Estate planning is not a fun subject, but it helps families after the death of a loved one. A local law firm ensures veterans have access to their ducks in a row.

BrownWinick’s attorney plans to host his second veterans estate planning event for free. This is part of an ongoing assignment for one of their attorneys, Army veteran Bob Hodges.

“I think veterans in particular have a unique perspective on the everyday in that it’s not given, you’ve seen the randomness of war, the randomness of life, and you and I want to make sure I’m not a burden on my family,” Hodges said.

Hodges helps prepare wills and powers of attorney for soldiers on overseas deployments.

“Veterans, most of them, want to have a plan. Each branch, we plan all the time and execute the plan and I think that’s amazing for them given their experience and background,” Hodges said.

Services include drafting basic wills and powers of attorney. The event will take place on November 11 at the West48 Conference Center in West Des Moines from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m.

They are quickly filling the 40 available spots, Hodges said.

Registration is required to help make the process as smooth as possible. Registration is available now by going to BrownWinick’s website.
