STILLWATER, MN—Eckberg Lammers is pleased to announce Estate Planning attorneys Patrick Boley, LL.M. and Jane Hill, CPA have been awarded with the Minnesota State Bar Association – North Star Lawyers 2020 award. This achievement is awarded to MSBA member lawyers who provided 50 or more hours of pro-bono legal services in the calendar year.
In 2020, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, our Estate Planning team recognized a need for first responders regarding estate planning services. In response to this need, they developed the ‘Wills for Workers’ program. This pro-bono program was available to healthcare providers and first responders in the St. Croix Valley, who were on the frontline during the pandemic. Patrick and Jane offered free basic estate planning services, so these heroes, who risked their health and welfare every day to serve others, had one last thing to worry about. The program ran from March through December 2020.
