Kansas Lawyers to Provide Free Legal Services to Kansas National Guard and Military Reservists

As Kansas National Guard and military reservists continue to be called to active duty, many worry about their families and details of unfinished business. In response, the Kansas Bar Association (KBA) has mobilized its members to take some of the worry out of leaving home.

The KBA has reactivated its “Project Call Up” program, which was originally initiated in 1990-91, during the “Desert Storm” conflict. Through this project, the KBA will match Kansas National Guard and military reservists with volunteer lawyers who will draft basic wills and/or durable powers of attorney at no charge.

Kansas National Guard and military reservists are encouraged to contact the KBA at (785) 234-5696 to be matched with an attorney in their area. Calls will be taken from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
