Sparta: Askin & Hooker, LLC will host their seventh annual Wills for Warriors program free of charge for Sussex County veterans on Friday, November 10, 2023.
The Wills for Warriors program, established in 2016 by attorneys Todd Hooker and William Askin, allows Sussex County, NJ, veterans to have their Last Will and Testament prepared for free. Since the program started, Askin & Hooker have prepared more the 200 wills for Sussex County veterans.
“We understand that estate planning can be an uncomfortable and expensive process regardless of the size of an estate,” said United States Army veteran and attorney Todd Hooker. “We are grateful to provide this service for our local veterans. We value their service to this country, and we feel it is important for us to give back.”
In New Jersey, if you pass without a will, the state will determine who will receive your assets, who will become the guardian for your minor children, and how your estate will be settled. Essential life planning, including a Will and a Living Will at minimum, is vital for everyone – no matter how much or how little you own.
“We understand the important role veterans play in our country and communities,” said attorney William Askin. “We are honored by our positive response so far for the Wills for Warrior program, and we look forward to continuing this program again this year.”
