Maslon, in Partnership with Minnesota Wills for Heroes, Donates Super Bowl LII Tickets to Family of Recently Fallen Officer
February 1, 2018
On Thursday, February 1, 2018, Maslon, in partnership with Minnesota Wills for Heroes and with the assistance of the Minnesota Law Enforcement Memorial Association, had the privilege of presenting four Super Bowl tickets to the family of recently fallen officer, Bill Mathews. Officer Mathews is survived by wife, Shawn, and 7-year old son Wyatt.
"As a downtown Minneapolis law firm, Maslon is particularly aware of our law enforcement community's great efforts to keep our city safe as we host the nation's biggest sporting event—and it is an absolute privilege to show our gratitude by sending the family of a recently fallen officer to Super Bowl LII," shared Maslon Partner Susan Link, who leads Maslon's Estate Planning Group and serves as program director for Minnesota Wills for Heroes. "Through Maslon's longtime support of Minnesota Wills for Heroes and the great assistance of the Minnesota Law Enforcement Memorial Association, I am honored to personally deliver the tickets to the family on behalf of both Maslon and Minnesota Wills for Heroes."
The Minnesota State Bar Association's Minnesota Wills for Heroes was created to provide no-cost estate planning services to the families of the state's first responders.
The Minnesota Law Enforcement Memorial Association—a nonprofit organization dedicated to assisting the families and home agencies of those law enforcement officers who have died in the line of duty—announced that the family of fallen Wayzata Police Officers Bill Mathews will receive four tickets to attend Super Bowl LII. The widow of Officer Mathews, Shawn, and their son, Wyatt, accepted the tickets at Maslon's offices.
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.
