Local attorneys to provide free service


February 13, 2018


Hurley — During a meeting at the Historic Ironwood Theatre last fall with the Gogebic Community College Foundation, Aspirus Ironwood Health Foundation and local attorneys, an effort was decided to promote the three nonprofits and their charitable work by following a model used in England, according to attorney Paul Sturgul in Hurley.

The borrowed idea involves willing attorneys providing free simple and free mirror wills, which are for married couples, while inviting people to make a donation to the three local charities. There is no compulsion involved in the donations, only the invitation to support the local charities while receiving the free will.

Sturgul said he will provide the free service during April. He said there is not a set month or requirement for attorneys electing to take part in the program, so people seeking the free service should contact their attorneys of choice and inquire whether they are involved in free wills in support of the local charities.

If a person elects to provide a donation, it can be done at the time of service, later, or upon death. It is entirely up to the individual and not a requirement to receive the will.
