Getting The Will That's Right For You

While there are a number of will templates available on the internet containing boilerplate language, there is no guarantee that such documents meet all the requirements for a valid will under Oklahoma law. Wills require careful drafting and consideration of your unique circumstances and wishes. Mistakes in drafting of the language can result in rulings by the court that the will is invalid. Sometimes these wills are incomplete and do not take into account all of the assets you own. The will may not address changes in circumstances forcing courts to intervene to decide how your estate needs to be distributed.

A Lawyer Who Understands Oklahoma Probate

I am attorney Jeff Crain, the principal at Crain & Associates. For over 15 years I've helped clients prepare their wills. I understand Oklahoma's probate law and the requirements for both drafting the estate plan documents and administering an estate. I draft your estate plan documents taking into account all of the property you own. The instruments I prepare clearly express your intent for distribution of everything contained within your estate.

Broad Estate Planning Experience

At Crain & Associates, PLLC, I routinely create:

  • Wills
  • Trusts
  • Powers of attorney (POA)
  • Other legal instruments that we incorporate into your estate planning strategy

I also provide advice and guidance to prevent misunderstandings from arising with regards to implementation of the estate plan.

Good Planning Provides A Smoother Path

While having a comprehensive estate plan in place is no guarantee that you can avoid the probate process, a well-drafted estate plan package does lessen the chances of disputes and court involvement. The will we prepare together complements the other estate plan documents I prepare. Besides making certain that your will meets the requirements of Oklahoma law, I design the overall estate plan to demonstrate your clear intent regarding your estate.

If a dispute arises, I, principal attorney Jeff Crain, have the litigation experience to provide you the most effective representation. I am usually able to quickly and cost-effectively resolve such disputes.
