— Askin & Hooker, LLC hosted their second annual Wills for Warriors program on November 6, 2017. The program was established by attorneys, Todd Hooker and William Askin, to allow the opportunity for Sussex County, NJ veterans to have their Last Will and Testament prepared free of charge. Since the program started in 2016, Askin & Hooker have prepared more the 50 wills for Sussex County veterans.

“We understand that estate planning can be an uncomfortable and expensive process regardless of the size of an estate,” said United States Army veteran and attorney Todd Hooker. “We are grateful to be able to provide this service for Sussex County veterans. We value their service to this country and we feel it is important for us to give back to them in some way.”

In the state of New Jersey, if you pass without a will in place, the state will determine who will receive your assets, who will become the guardian for your minor children as well as how your estate will be settled. Basic life planning, including a Will and a Living Will at minimum, is important for everyone – no matter how much or how little you own.

“We understand the important role veterans play in our country and in our communities,” said attorney William Askin. "We are honored by the positive response we have had so far for the Wills for Warrior program, and we are looking forward to continuing this program next year.”
