Since 2006, the New Mexico Young Lawyers Division (NM YLD) has been implementing the American Bar Association Young Lawyers Division national service project Wills for Heroes (WFH) which provides wills, advance healthcare directives and powers of attorney free of charge to first-responders. The WFH program helps to put first-responders’ minds at ease as they work hard to protect our communities every day. The NM YLD provides these hard-working professionals with some relief knowing that they have planned to provide for their families in the event that tragedy hits. Through the Wills for Heroes Program, attorneys are giving back to the community and "protecting those who protect us."  The NM YLD regularly schedules events throughout the state, and in 2016 alone the NM YLD drafted 232 wills for New Mexico first-responders. In 2017, the WFH program was awarded "Outstanding Legal Program Award" by the State Bar of New Mexico in recognition of the program's service to the legal profession and the public.
