Thomas Walters, PLLC is a multi-state law firm that focuses solely on estate planning, Wills, Trusts and Probate. The firm formed in 2016 when the six founding partners broke off from another national law firm that also focused solely on estate planning.
Thomas Walters Attorneys currently holds law licenses in nineteen states with offices in five states. Stacey Walters, one of the founding partners, operated out of the two Raleigh office locations before realizing that West End/Pinehurst was a prime location with a need to be filled.
Stacey realized the need in West End after holding an estate planning event in Pinehurst.
“Every month we freely educate the public,” Stacey said. “In January we did an event here. The room seated twenty-six. Fifty-two people wanted to come. So, we held two back-to-back seminars.”
After having a strong response from people, who wanted to avoid probate, protect assets, and keep more of their money for their family, Stacey began considering a West End location that was convenient to Pinehurst and the surrounding communities.
The Raleigh offices have clients who travel from Greenville, Rocky Mountain, Holly Springs, and Fuquay Varina. The West End office also provides clients with an option that may be a little closer to home.
“We focus on serving the client along with offering complimentary lifetime services,” Stacey said.
Stacey Walters has been practicing law for twenty years. She studied in Michigan, but grew up in Hillsborough, North Carolina.
“We are not your typical law firm. We want a life-long relationship with our clients. One of the ways we do that is through our monthly newsletter. Clients are kept up to speed with changes in the law or shifts in estate planning trends. For example, we are currently revising the financial power of attorney due to new laws that just took effect in January, 2018. Because we can make changes very easily, we want to help our clients always have current documents in place, and we do it at no cost to them, for their lifetime,” Stacey explained.
The West End location is located at 5228 NC Hwy 211 Suite D in West End. Hours are by appointment only, and appointments can be made by calling 919-424-8277. Appointments may be made with either of the two local attorneys that staff the West End office – Stacey Walters or Duffy Palmer.
Stacey Walters will be hosting another estate planning event at Nina’s in Pinehurst on Wednesday, May 2nd at 6:30PM and May 23 at 6:30pm. The event is free and open to the public. To register, call 888-787-1913.
