FRB is Now Offering Pro Bono Estate Planning to Frontline Health Providers
Falcon Rappaport & Berkman LLP and the FRB COVID-19 Task Force are now offering Pro Bono Estate Planning for those serving on the front lines of the pandemic.
While much of the world shelters in place, our medical frontline workers—the nurses, EMTs, and custodial staff maintaining our hospitals—are putting their lives in danger every day as they go about taking care of our communities and saving the lives of others. To help healthcare frontline workers protect themselves and their families, FRB is offering the following free life planning assistance to qualified individuals working on the medical frontlines and their spouses:
