Attorney Katie Muhlenkamp Joins Chapel Hill Estate Planning Firm TrustCounsel
Attorney Katie H. Muhlenkamp joins TrustCounsel in their Chapel Hill, North Carolina office. As an elder law and estate planning attorney she manages an increasing volume of clientele with elder care legal planning needs in North Carolina.
Her practice areas help clients develop legal plans for individuals with Alzheimer’s or dementia, understand the restrictions and requirements imposed by Medicaid and Medicare, and manage powers of attorney to ensure important financial and medical decisions are carried out on behalf of an elderly individual who might become incapacitated.
Katie is an alumna of Wake Forest University School of Law. She is the recipient of numerous honors including the Order of Barristers, the National Advocates for Justice Award, and the Forsyth County Women Attorneys Award. Katie owned an elder law practice in Burlington, North Carolina for two years prior to joining TrustCounsel.

Katie’s work focuses on helping clients cover care costs while protecting assets for loved ones at the same time. She is admitted to practice in North Carolina, and TrustCounsel also provides services to clients in Tennessee, Florida, and New York.
