Strategic Enid Attorneys Help Clients Establish All Types of Trusts

Oklahoma estate planning firm creates instruments tailored to your goals

A trust can serve as an important part of your long-term plans, no matter the size of your potential estate. These legal instruments serve a variety of purposes and are tailored to the trust creator’s needs. Long, Claypole & Blakley Law, PLC in Enid works with a diverse group of clients to explain how trusts can help beneficiaries avoid the probate process, fund a charitable purpose or ensure that funds are spent according to the trust creator’s directions. Should you choose to establish a trust, our experienced Oklahoma lawyers can assist with the drafting, administration and enforcement of these instruments. Should a dispute arise, we also advocate for trustees and challengers during negotiations and litigation.

Garfield County lawyers assist with living trusts and other pertinent issues

If you’re unsure how trusts work or believe they only benefit the wealthy, our firm can simplify the process and provide personalized assistance with:

  • Creating trusts — Whether the best option is a revocable trust that can be altered or dissolved or an irrevocable trust that might have some tax advantages, we’ll draft clear, careful language so there is no question about the trust’s terms.
  • Living trusts — Living trusts are popular with people who wish to transfer assets upon their deaths to loved ones without forcing them to go through the hassle associated with probate. Individuals who establish living trusts need not file their document with the court, and they retain access to their property throughout their lifetime. Our firm prepares these instruments for clients along with wills that cover any assets that might not have been placed in the trust.
  • Administration — If you require someone to administer the terms set forth in a trust, our firm is capable of enforcing complex terms, maintaining accurate records and communicating effectively with beneficiaries as well as potential challengers.

We’ll give you the information you need to craft a trust that reflects your intentions and fits within your overall estate planning goals.
