Durham Trusts Lawyers

40+ Years of Trust Administration Experience in Durham

A trust is one way to help your loved ones avoid probate court following your death. Essentially, a trust arranges for one person, the trustee, to hold the legal title to the assets for another person, the beneficiary. You can serve as the trustee for your own living trust during your lifetime and maintain total control over the property that is held in the trust.

Our Durham trusts lawyers at Walker Lambe, PLLC can help you evaluate whether a trust is the right option for you and your family. We take into account your assets, family situation, and other factors in order to provide a legal solution that is customized to your needs. With more than three decades of experience, our firm can anticipate any potential pitfalls and work to overcome the legal issues you face.
