Caroline B. Denning


Caroline joined Walker Lambe, PLLC in 2020 and practices with the firm’s trust and estates group. Caroline earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science with a minor in Asian Studies from Elon University. While attending Elon University she joined the Omicron Epsilon Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated and the Mu Pi Chapter of Alpha Kappa Psi (the largest co-ed professional business fraternity). She was inducted into Pi Alpha Sigma, the National Political Science Honor Society and was recognized as a LINCS (Leader in Collaborative Service) volunteer with the Elon Kernodle Center for Service Learning.

Caroline earned a Juris Doctor from North Carolina Central University (NCCU) School of Law. While in law school, Caroline was Executive Editor of the North Carolina Central Law Review and was recognized by the North Carolina Bar Association (NCBA) for completing over 75 hours of pro bono service, including service in NCCU’s Wills Clinic. Caroline also volunteered as a law clerk to the D.C. Superior Court, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit, and the North Carolina Court of Appeals.

Prior to joining Walker Lambe, Caroline worked with a technology company in Research Triangle Park for several years before opening a solo practice in Durham, North Carolina helping clients with their probate, estate, and business planning needs.

As the granddaughter of multi-generational tobacco and cotton farmers from Southern Wake, Hertford, and Bertie County, Caroline understands the value of family and a hard day’s work. Her passion is helping her clients protect both by crafting an estate plan that suits their unique needs.

Outside of the practice of law, Caroline enjoys developing her yoga and meditation practice, running, and spending time with her family. She resides in the Bull City (Durham, NC) with her dog “Ollie.”
