Department of Neighborhoods

Wills Clinics

The Department of Neighborhoods partners with Houston Volunteer Lawyers to host Wills Clinics for Houston residents who have financial need. These clinics take place over two days, approximately a month apart. Participants are required to attend both clinics. The first date is the intake clinic where residents meet their volunteer attorneys and share their wishes for their estate planning documents. The second date is when the attorneys execute the documents for their clients.

Volunteer lawyers will prepare estate planning documents for pre-approved low-income Houstonians free of charge. Estate planning documents include simple wills, medical powers of attorney, HIPAA releases, declarations of a guardian, living wills, and durable powers of attorney.
