At Park, Nelson, Caywood & Jones, L.L.P. our probate administration and estate planning attorneys help the people of central and southwestern Oklahoma arrange their estates to provide for the orderly distribution of assets after their passign. We are especially attuned to the needs of landowners, ranchers, farmers, royalty owners, and other working people of Oklahoma. Our lawyers also do ancillary probate work for nonresident owners of oil, gas, and mineral deposits.
Our estate planning lawyers tailor a combination of wills, living wills, trusts, powers of attorney, and more to each client's needs. On occasion, will contests and estate disputes arise, and our trial attorneys have experience necessary to take on such litigation.
"Probate" refers to the process by which wills are accepted by the court system, which is a necessary step for dispersing an estate after the owner's passing. With the proper estate planning beforehand, including wills and trusts, probate proceedings can work smoothly and the grieving family can undergo a minimum of legal wrangling and delay.
When the testator of the estate passes on, our probate administration lawyers make sure the estate is distributed properly. We can also pursue probate proceedings for estates planned or maintained by other attorneys.
