Volunteer for Vets, Learn about Senior Driver Issues—and Come to Wyoming!
First, volunteer legal assistance for veterans, in particular for disabled veterans. You will recall the fall issue of Experience devoted to veterans and a description of the Veterans Administration programs to provide volunteer lawyer assistance. On March 22, Albany Law School hosted such a program. I had registered to participate, looked forward to the experience and to the satisfaction of helping a veteran in need of a lawyer. A client conflict prevented it. Fortunately I was able to contribute in a small way by arranging for the New York State Bar Association to donate a set of the New York Lawyer’s Deskbook and the New York Lawyer’s Form Book, a seven-volume set of materials in both print and electronic form, with a retail price of $750. It will enable volunteer lawyers to draft documents on the spot for participating veterans, a living will, healthcare proxy, last will and testament, and simple business forms. But for me there’s more: the Saratoga County Bar Association organized its own Veterans Legal Clinic in mid-April. I’ll be there. Fellow SLD members, join this national effort and feel good!
