Louis A. “Lou” Trosch, Sr.
Lou Trosch brings more than 49 years of experience in the practice of real estate law, estate planning, business and corporate law, as well as probate and estate administration. In addition, he is an award-winning Professor of Business Law at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte and is the author of numerous law articles.
I founded Conrad, Trosch and Kemmy 50 years ago with the core values of treating every single client with complete dignity and respect. I also believe in the word “service”. I know that is a very over – used term in most cases, but with our firm, it is paramount.
There are several “hands on” ways that I have believed in for these past 50 years. First, I return phone calls as quickly as I can. Second, I give clients practical, no-nonsense answers to their questions. For example, if a lawsuit is not worth pursuing, I will make sure that my client is aware of it and does not spend “good money” chasing “bad money.” My main objective is to create a just and peaceful solution for my client. I avoid creating more conflict than resolution.
My two sons, Bill and Eric, practice law at the firm, as did my wife, Minette, until her death in April 2018. My family has greatly influenced my practice of law. I believe that a parent has to earn the respect of a child, just as the child has to earn the respect of a parent. I apply this to my practice daily as I strive to earn and maintain the respect of my clients.
One of the most fulfilling things I’ve done outside of the “practice” of law is teaching law. I have taught Business Law to more than 18,000 students over the past forty-four years at The University of North Carolina – Charlotte. Teaching college students keeps me current and connected, and I am honored to call many of my former students both clients and friends.
In my spare time, I love spending time with my children and grandchildren. Our family’s commitment to community has also been especially rewarding to me.

If you want to know something really close to my heart outside of family and the law, my most cherished “possession” is my 1964 Volkswagen Bug that boasts more than 400,000 miles on it. My Volkswagen is a symbol of my roots and reminds me of what life was like back when I first married Minette.
