Attorney Amy Pietrowski Honors Fellow Veterans with Volunteer Service at Wills for Heroes
Wills for Heroes provides estate planning documents free of charge to first responders and veterans
Mississippi veterans and first responders have the opportunity to receive estate planning documents free of charge thanks to local volunteer lawyers including Attorney Amy Pietrowski, a veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps.
Wills for Heroes, a document-preparation event, will be held at All Saints Episcopal Church, located at 608 West Jefferson Ave. in Tupelo on Thursday, Nov. 7 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Event participants must be pre-screened by Mississippi Volunteer Lawyers Project by Friday, Nov. 1, at noon to be eligible to participate. Walk-ins are accepted but will be served after pre-screened participants.
Pietrowski, in collaboration with Mississippi Volunteer Lawyers Project and volunteer attorneys from throughout the state of Mississippi, will offer her time and legal expertise to honor the sacrifices made by veterans and first responders.
Pietrowski cites her personal experience in the U.S. Marine Corps as motivation to give back to her fellow veterans as well as first responders.
“Since I’ve had the opportunity to become a lawyer, I have a sense of duty to help those who leave their families every day to protect others,” she said. “I owe it to those who sacrifice to lift them up and provide them assistance in any way that I can.”

Wills for Heroes pays tribute to the sacrifices of veterans and first responders by providing estate-planning documents for free to active military members, veterans and active or retired first responders. Pietrowski and other attorneys will assist veterans in drafting essential estate-planning documents such as wills, powers of attorneys and advanced healthcare directives. The documents will be executed on-site and given to veterans and first responders at no cost to them.
The estate documents executed at the Wills for Heroes event provide peace of mind and security to families of first responders and veterans should tragedy arise. It also provides the opportunity to honor and offer support to those who serve and protect local communities each day.
