After North Park – Love Field residents told me that elderly neighbors needed information about how to pass along property after their death, I decided to help them organize a course on preparing wills.
Since my law practice focuses on commercial litigation, I sought out an attorney who specializes in estate planning. We organized a two-hour training session at the K.B. Polk Recreation Center, and many residents came to learn about how to pass on their real and personal property.
Without a will to set out how property is to be transferred after death, the result is often family turmoil. Also, when there are problems with real property, whether code violations or illegal activity, the City of Dallas often struggles to figure out who owns the property and who is responsible for it. I was pleased that we could offer this service to our senior citizens, and look forward to similar programs in the future.
