Knowledgeable Enid Lawyers Establish Sound Estate Plans

Oklahoma attorneys advise on methods to preserve and transfer assets

Developing a sound estate plan is a responsibility that can make a profound difference in the lives of the people you love. Regardless of your age or financial status, Long, Claypole & Blakley Law, PLC in Enid has the knowledge and dedication to create a legacy tailored to your goals and principles. Through a detailed discussion of estate planning solutions such as wills, trusts and advance directives, our seasoned Oklahoma attorneys will help you find the best way to preserve your assets, transfer your property, control your medical treatment and establish provisions that safeguard your children. Hesitating in these matters could have serious consequences. We ease the process for you so you can put an effective program in place.

Experienced advisers assist with the creation and revision of wills

Our firm’s attorneys have eight decades of combined legal experience, and we use what we’ve learned to deliver strong guidance on any matter relating to wills, such as:

  • Drafting — When someone makes a mistake on a will that they prepare themselves or without the assistance of a qualified attorney, it might not be discovered until it’s too late. Our firm can make sure that your will meets the legal requirements relating to age and execution before a witness.
  • Revisions — Smart estate planning is an ongoing process that reflects changes in your relationships and finances. When it’s been a while since you’ve looked over your testamentary instructions, we can review them with you and make any necessary revisions.
  • Estate tax issues — Oklahoma does not have an estate or inheritance tax, and individual estates are exempt from federal tax if they are worth less than $5.6 million. If you believe that your assets might match or exceed this total, we can discuss tax planning options that could relieve the burden.

It’s never too soon to safeguard your family’s security and set forth clear terms regarding the disposition of your assets. We make the process easy.

Garfield County counselors set up trusts to meet a wide range of client needs

Placing assets in a trust can serve a variety of needs. After discussing your goals, our knowledgeable lawyers demonstrate how one of these legal instruments can fund a charitable cause, reduce taxes or ensure that your assets are used according to your directions. For clients who want their heirs to skip the probate process, we establish living trusts. These arrangements enable the grantor to retain access to their property for the rest of their life.

Passionate advocates draft guardianship documents to protect children

Guardianships are established to protect disabled adults and children whose parents are deceased or unable to care for them. When parents are planning their estate, we outline the factors that should be considered and draft clear documents so that clients can have peace of mind about their children’s future no matter what happens. Our firm also assists in situations where disabled adults cannot meet their legal obligations or personal needs effectively.

Established firm develops advance directives so people can control their treatment

If you’re suddenly incapacitated by an illness or injury, even the people closest to you might not be sure about your medical treatment choices. Executing a durable power of attorney document beforehand can ensure that your wishes are honored and communicated by someone you trust. We help individuals and families prepare these types of advance directives in addition to living wills, which state the specific types of extraordinary care that you want and don’t want if a medical condition makes you unable to communicate your wishes.
