Fox’s Sandra Romaszewski Elected to Wills for Heroes® Foundation Board of DirectorsApril 18, 2016 – Press Releases
Fox Rothschild LLP is pleased to announce that Sandra A. Romaszewski has been elected to the Board of Directors of the Wills for Heroes® Foundation. She will also serve as corporate secretary and Co-Director of National Affiliate Development for the organization.
Wills for Heroes® is a nationally recognized nonprofit organization that assists attorneys, bar associations and other 501(c)(3) organizations with establishing state and local programs to provide estate planning services (including preparation of simple wills, living wills, and powers of attorney) free of charge to our nation’s emergency first responders, sworn law enforcement personnel, and military veterans who are eligible for the programs.
Romaszewski has been actively involved with the Wills for Heroes® program for six years. Through the initiative, which is co-sponsored in Pennsylvania by the Pennsylvania Bar Association’s Young Lawyers Division, Romaszewski provides free basic estate planning services to first responders and military veterans. She also spearheaded the development of a manual that helps volunteers in Pennsylvania use the software program that populates the wills and additional legal documents for participants.
Additionally, she serves as the program’s coordinator for both Bucks and Delaware Counties in Pennsylvania and also assists in running the program statewide and nationally. Through her role as a coordinator, Romaszewski works to recruit volunteers, including many from Fox Rothschild, to help with events.
Romaszewski was honored in 2013 with the Verdina Y. Showell Award from the Pennsylvania Bar Association for her outstanding community service and commitment to the Wills for Heroes® program, and in 2015 with the Pennsylvania Bar Association Special Achievement Award in recognition of her ongoing efforts in support of Wills for Heroes®.
A senior associate in the firm’s Corporate Department, Romaszewski has been named one of the leading corporate attorneys in Pennsylvania for four consecutive years by Chambers USA. Her practice focuses on M&A and other corporate, transactional, insurance and international matters for public and private companies of all sizes, including mergers & acquisitions, divestitures, corporate finance, private equity and venture capital financings, securities and private placements, corporate governance, joint ventures, and insurance regulatory matters. Romaszewski also holds various leadership positions within the firm.
In recognition of her contributions to the legal community and her pro bono efforts, Romaszewski was named among the 2015 distinguished list of “Lawyers on the Fast Track” by The Legal Intelligencer and Pennsylvania Law Weekly.
