Experienced Florida Estate Planning and Probate Counsel
The Walser Law Firm specializes in providing legal services regarding estate planning, elder law and probate administration, and has done so for more than 30 years. Thomas C. Walser founded the firm in 1983 and built the practice to serve the Florida community, primarily Palm Beach County.
Our firm now handles complex cases throughout the entire state, including the ability to handle probate cases in every one of the sixty-seven (67) counties of Florida. We can confidently guarantee that our firm will continue to build its network within the Florida community far into the future, as the founder’s son, Thomas R. Mendez Walser, has joined the practice as of 2014.
The Walser Law Firm regularly works with our legal colleagues and other professionals from other states who have estate planning and probate matters in Florida. We work with CPAs, accountants, financial planners, private bankers and other attorneys who need to outsource work or consult with Florida counsel.
These professionals refer their snowbird clients who live in the northeastern United States, particularly in New York and New Jersey, and who own property in Florida. We also work directly with individuals and families who maintain various degrees of connectivity to Florida, either as the location of their domicile, second home or as the beneficiary of a Florida relative.
Referring Cases to Our Florida Estate Planning and Probate Firm

The agreement we come to with the referring attorney will guide the level of interaction we have with your clients. For example, we can arrange to communicate only with you while you maintain exclusive contact with your client. If this is the case, we will clearly outline all the information we need from you to effectively serve your client’s best interests. We recognize you have developed a network of clients over many years — just as Walser Law Firm has done in South Florida — and we honor your role as the primary service provider.
We offer free consultations to other professionals, including CPAs, accountants, financial planners, private bankers and lawyers, to determine whether our services are warranted in a specific instance and to discuss how we can best serve their clients.
New York and New Jersey Licensed Associates
Several attorneys at our Florida firm are licensed to practice law in other states. Most notably, Thomas R. Mendez Walser is a member of the Bar for the states of New York and New Jersey. We are thus able to offer comprehensive estate planning and probate services to clients with dual ties to northeastern states and Florida.
