ince the firm was formed in July of 1986, the partners and associates of Dinkins Kelly Lenox Lamb & Walker, L.L.P. have established themselves as experts in their respective areas of interest within the general fields of estate planning, probate, trust, and guardianship law. This combination of disciplines – the firm's ability to draw from experience on both the planning and litigation sides of estate work – enables the firm to excel. It is experience in litigation, for example, that helps to identify areas of concern in the planning of estates. Likewise, experience in planning helps bring into focus the tax and other consequences involved in the resolution of contested matters.
