Thank you Autauga County Commission Chair Jay Thompson, Judge Kim Kervin Autauga County Probate Office, and Autauga County Bar President Kyle Shirley for coming together last week to discuss how the legal community could better assist our Autauga County families during their time of need!
Judge Kervin reported that the Alabama Probate Judges Association graciously donated $500.00 to cover the filing fees for the estates filed on anyone who lost their life in the storm. Lee County Probate Judge Bill English, whose county benefited from a similar donation, made the motion for the organization. Thank you to the APJA for this donation to Autauga County families.
Also, thank you to Senator Clyde Chambliss for working with the Alabama Association for Justice to secure free legal assistance for families needing assistance completing FEMA paperwork and filing insurance company.
