Who We Are

Every year, over 7,000 Veterans exit the U.S. Armed Forces and choose to make the Pacific Northwest their home. These Veterans lose access to a crucial service that was previously provided to them for free by the military: Estate Planning.

Since it's founding in 2012, the WA Vets Will Clinic has bridged the gap between Veterans and local attorneys who volunteer their time to meet with Veterans and prepare crucial estate planning documents for free. Veterans who attend the Clinic get the benefit of:

·             Meeting privately with an estate planning attorney to discuss their estate plan;

·             Executing a Will, Power of Attorney, and a Health Care Directive; and

·             Peace of mind knowing their estate planning needs have been addressed.

            The WA Vets Will Clinic was founded by a collaboration of the Spokane County Bar Association Young Lawyers Division, Army OneSource, Gonzaga University School of Law, Red Cross - Inland Northwest Region, Vet Center (U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs), and  Washington State Department of Veterans Affairs. 

            Since that founding, the Clinic has developed sponsorships and partnerships across the state of Washington. Such partnerships include local law firms, local and international organizations, and individual attorneys seeking to make a difference in the everyday life of a veteran.
