Some people in Oklahoma may be among others throughout the nation who tend to steer clear of discussions that involve their own mortality. Stories abound of those who have died without having wills in place. Such situations often cause surviving loved ones to face complications and difficult legal challenges later down the line.
At Derryberry & Naifeh, LLP, we provide experienced and dedicated service to those in need of estate planning or administration guidance throughout the state. Documenting your wishes in the form of a will enables your voice to be heard in the event that you should become incapacitated and unable to speak on your own behalf or after you have died. We can help you discern your immediate and long-term legal goals; then we can take steps to define those goals in an appropriate form.
Depending on one's level of assets, lifestyle, business associations and family size, planning an estate may be a simple or very complex matter. Either way, it is most often beneficial to act alongside the counsel of an experienced probate and administration attorney to make certain that your assets are protected and best interests served. In addition to issues regarding wills, many clients seek legal consultation for answers to questions about trusts, probate, medical directives or powers of attorney.
It is understandable that you would want to provide for your loved ones in the event of your death. A carefully crafted estate plan and updated will can carry on your generous intentions and loving care for your family into future generations. By calling our Oklahoma office, you can take the first steps to avoid the problems many others have encountered when loved ones die without wills in place.
