Local Probate Attorney, Tommy Walser, Gives Back to the Broward County Community
Attorney Tommy Walser, a partner in the Florida Probate Law Firm, PLLC, has volunteered with Legal Aid Service of Broward County’s “No Place Like Home” Program for the past 2 years, providing probate services to low income and vulnerable members of our community in need of legal assistance.
The “No Place Like Home” Program is a partnership with The Real Property, Probate & Trust Law Section of The Florida Bar. Most people utilizing this service have recently lost a loved one who owned a home and need help transferring title into the names of the correct beneficiaries. Without clearing title by removing the decedent’s name, it would be impossible for the beneficiaries to prove ownership in order to qualify for disaster-relief benefits in the event of a hurricane, obtain new insurance coverage, maintain a homestead tax exemption, and in some cases apply for loans associated with home improvements. Mr. Walser is committed to providing pro bono services to these underserved populations who could not otherwise afford legal assistance.
“Legal Aid Service of Broward County is a great organization which identifies those in our community that need help with the probate process, but cannot afford it” stated Walser. He continued “Florida Probate Law Firm is happy to assist with the probate process for individuals who need help the most. It is important that we give back to the community we live in, the best way we know how.”
