Area Attorneys offer Veterans assistance in Will preparation

November 11, 2020

This Veterans Day, Nov. 11, veterans living in Western Kentucky can get a free last will and testament prepared by one of a number of local attorneys who have pledged to donate their time and experience to serve those who have served.

The event was organized by Hickman County attorney, Jason Batts, who also serves as a Judge Advocate in the Army Reserve.

“We honor our veterans and their service year-round,” Batts said, “and this is one more thing we can do to in recognition of Veterans Day.”

This is the eighth year Batts has organized the event, which has helped numerous veterans and their families.

Any veteran living in Western Kentucky can contact attorney Jason Batts, in Clinton, at (270) 653-6924 on Nov. 11, 2020. to request a free will with proof of military service.

Veterans will then be put in contact with a local attorney to set up a time that is convenient to meet and prepare the will.

Participating attorneys include: The Law Office of Jason Batts; Neely, Brien, Wilson & Toombs; Greg Taylor & Associates; Gregory, Easley & Ernstberger; Null, Samson & Paitsel; Prince and Brien; Whitlow, Roberts, Houston & Straub; Kemp Law Group; Major & Major; and Grumley, Riley, and Stewart.

Batts has organized this program every year he has been practicing law except two: 2012, when he was attending basic training after joining the Army, and 2019, when he was deployed to the U.S./Mexico border.

“I simply cannot thank the attorneys who volunteer enough for their help,” Batts said.
