Dear Colleague,

Thank you for stepping up and volunteering your expertise during this unprecedented time. We so appreciate you joining the Frontline Responders Legal Helpline to provide some peace of mind to the Michiganders on the front lines of the battle against COVID-19.

If you are new to this practice area, ICLE has generously made available free resources and training for lawyers involved in the Frontline Responders Legal Helpline. Those resources provide guidance on drafting simple wills, durable powers of attorney, patient advocate designation documents, and directions on new remote notarization procedures. If you would like access to these resources, please let us know by emailing and we will share them with you.

Our goal is to make sure every frontline responder in the state hears about this program. If you’d like to help spread the word on your social networks, we have some images you can download and share here.

Thank you again for your service.


Dennis M. Barnes, President

Janet K. Welch, Executive Director
