Bay Area Legal Services and the Bar’s Real Property, Probate and Trust Law Section are coordinating to provide free health-care surrogate and living will services to the everyday heroes whose jobs help Floridians through the COVID-19 pandemic.

“One of the tragedies of this pandemic that we’re dealing with is that people who are our frontline workers are putting themselves at risk and most of them are not thinking about the fact they need some legal documents to help them out,” said Plant City attorney Harley Herman, a member of the section who came up with the idea for the Frontline Heroes Program.

He’s worked with the section members, Johnathan Butler and Rebecca Bell, respectively the 13th and Sixth Circuit RPPTL representatives, to help find volunteers and set up the program.
