Attorney Susan Link Featured on WCCO's Minnesota Law Radio Show Regarding the Minnesota Wills for Heroes Program
May 10, 2012
Susan Link, partner and head of Maslon's Estate Planning Group, was featured on WCCO's Minnesota Law radio show on May 5, 2012, to discuss the Minnesota State Bar Association's Wills for Heroes program. Susan serves as program director for Minnesota Wills for Heroes, which provides free legal services to assist first responders in preparing Wills, Health Care Directives, Powers of Attorney, and suggested beneficiary designation language to protect themselves and their families in the event of their death. Eligible first responders include police, firefighters, EMTs, dispatchers, paramedics and correction officers, and their spouses/domestic partners, widows or widowers.

In the interview, Susan noted that every event has one or more attorneys with at least 20 years of experience, ensuring high-quality documents that are immediately legal. She also highlighted the metrics of the program's success, as follows:

Since 2007, Minnesota Wills for Heroes volunteers have:
  • Traveled 16,000 miles to police stations and fire stations across Minnesota
  • Prepared 6,287 estate plans
  • Volunteered a total of 3,594 hours

Susan Link practices in the areas of estate planning, probate, and trust administration. She works closely with families to plan the disposition of their assets, both during lifetime and at death, and to accomplish the optimal estate and gift tax planning for clients through wills, trusts, and other instruments. Susan also works with families after the death of a family member to ensure that the client's wishes are achieved and that the plan they created is carried out.
