Maslon is pleased to announce that Susan Link, chair of Maslon's Estate Planning Group, and Andrea Bischoff, application support specialist, have been awarded the Distinguished Service Award by the Hennepin County Sheriff Department for their work and contributions to law enforcement personnel, families, and the greater community as program directors for the Minnesota Wills for Heroes Program.
Each year, the Minnesota Wills for Heroes Program provides free legal services to law enforcement personnel across the state in the preparation of basic estate planning documents. Susan and Andrea serve both as program directors and active volunteers for the organization, which helps to prepare Wills, Powers of Attorney, and Health Care Directives free of charge. Future clinics assisting law enforcement with basic estate planning needs are scheduled into 2022.
Susan Link is chair of Maslon's Estate Planning Group and 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. She serves as the program director of Minnesota Wills for Heroes, a program designed to provide free legal services for the preparation of basic estate planning documents for Minnesota first responders.
