Probate and Guardianship
Our experienced probate attorneys help ensure that the deceased’s assets are distributed according to his or her wishes.
If the deceased’s estate needs to go through probate, the next question is whether he or she had a will. If so, the distribution of assets will generally take place under the terms of the will. If there is no will, Oklahoma law will govern how assets will be distributed.
When a guardianship proceeding is helpful or needed when incapacity exists or an estate plan is in place, our attorneys navigate the risks and resolve any administrative issues.
