Since September 2007, Williams Mullen has provided basic life planning documents for several groups in need of legal services through free clinics -- including veterans, nursing homes, at-risk moms, senior citizens and recovering addicts. The program was created by Pro Bono Partner Andy Nea, who has led the program’s clinics since its inception. The program served 438 clients in 27 clinics in 2016. In total, 98 lawyers contributed their services to the program during 2016, which provides a simple will, a power of attorney and an advance medical directive. The program also partners with Virginia law schools and, in 2016, 62 students from the University of Richmond, William & Mary, and the University of Virginia assisted at the clinics.
