Our Story

The Walser & Herman Law Firm has been specializing in providing legal services in estate planning, elder law, and probate administration for more than 30 years.

Walser & Herman Law Firm was founded in 1983 to serve the Palm Beach community and has since prepared thousands of estate plans for many generations of families in South Florida. Maintaining relationships with our clients and the community is a priority for our firm. 

While the field of trust & estates, as all fields within the legal profession, have evolved to keep pace with technological advances as well as shifts in social norms, we take pride in maintaining our core values of providing top quality individualized service that only a boutique firm can offer. 

One of the advantages to working with a Florida estate planning attorney that specializes in one practice area of law is the reassurance that we frequently address issues regarding estate planning, probate administration, trustee and guardianship situations on a regular basis and have a depth of knowledge built by our hands-on experience.

South Florida is a wonderful community that attracts a number of families and individuals seeking residency in the locale, whom are seeking a comfortable setting to enjoy their lives — whether that means making Florida their primary residence or merely a vacation reprieve to escape the winter. As such, this area is prominently known for those looking to retire, as well as individuals seeking second or third homes for vacation purposes. We recognize the benefits associated with Florida and have assisted many families with their transition to establishing a domicile in Florida, as well as developing an estate plan to protect their assets as well as to protect themselves and their family members.

We take pride in assisting our clients to the best of our ability, and enjoy providing our services to both the Florida community, and those in the northeast United States that need assistance with property or other issues located in our state.
