Dress for Success Houston Hosts Will-A-Thon with Volunteer V&E Lawyers, Alumni and Staff

For the second year, V&E partnered with Houston Volunteer Lawyers to conduct a Will-A-Thon at Dress for Success Houston (DFS).  Just as we did last year, we offered to prepare wills and other end of life documents for women in the Professional Women's Group at DFS. This group of women is hard at work building the foundation for a successful and stable future. Having these end of life documents prepared, given that many are single parents, is a major step on this road.

At this year's event, V&E lawyers and alum, along with a few other Houston area lawyers, assisted 26 women in two sessions. The first session on June 10 was the initial meeting with the lawyers; lawyers met their clients, and gathered all of the necessary information needed to prepare their documents. On July 15, those documents were executed. In addition to the volunteer lawyers, V&E staff volunteered their time to be notaries and witnesses at the execution ceremonies.

"It was an honor to represent such powerful, determined individuals. Their perseverance and courage in the face of adversity are examples for us all," said Darin Schultz, finance partner.
