BOLIVIA — Local attorney B. Joseph (Joey) Causey Jr. participated in a pro bono wills clinic for 14 local families served by Habitat for Humanity on Saturday, March 4. Attorney Causey supervised law students from Wake Forest Law School as they interviewed and counseled clients.

Kathy Rebeck and Nita Robertson from Habitat for Humanity hosted the event, held at Brunswick Community College. Sarah Saint served as a facilitator for the law students. Causey practices in Shallotte, focusing on estate planning through wills and trusts preparation.

The goal of this pro bono project is to allow Habitat families to have their wills and advance directives prepared, while providing valuable experience for the students. It is hoped that this will become an annual event.
