Do I need a Will?

You can protect your family and your property by creating a will.  If you happen to die in the absence of a will, your property will be distributed based on Oklahoma’s intestacy laws, which give your property to your relatives based on how close they are in relation to you, and not on how close they were to you in life.

Your last will and testament is your opportunity to ensure that your property is accurately distributed to the beneficiaries you have selected.   What many people do not know is that it also allows you to name the guardian of your children instead of leaving it up to the court.

Wills can be created for the following purposes:

  • Leave your property to individuals or organizations

  • Name a personal guardian for your children's care

  • Name an executor to carry out the wishes of your will

  • Name a trusted person to manage property for a minor children

Can't I just do it myself?

When you create a Will it is important to make sure it is part of a cohesive Estate Plan.  A Will may be all you need, but it is important to explore all of the options and to insure that you and your family’s needs are met.  Having a knowledgeable attorney by your side will give you peace of mind and ensure the effectiveness of your Will.  Our goal is to make the process easier and educate the client in a plainspoken manner.
