Estate Planning – Probate
For most non-lawyers, the process of settling a deceased loved one’s affairs and meeting all legal obligations can be overwhelming. We strive to be a dependable, cost-effective resource for minimizing the burden on you and your family in an already difficult time.
Should a dispute arise along the way, we are prepared to represent your interests.
If you have recently lost a loved one and want counsel from an attorney who understands the Oklahoma probate process and can help you get through it — start to finish — please contact us today.
We also provide estate planning services for keeping your own estate out of probate and greatly simplifying demands on family members when you pass away.
Mr. Heaton’s Law Office was very helpful in settling my Dad’s estate. Everything worked out just fine. Thank you for all your hard work.
Complete, Hands-On Legal Representation Throughout the Probate Process
Probate is a process intended to protect everyone’s legal rights after a person’s death.
Unfortunately, collecting assets, collecting and paying debts, handling tax issues, and distributing assets to the right people can require numerous hearings, filings, and other steps over a period of several months or even much longer. There are many potential pitfalls. We know what to do — and what not to do.
Our extensive knowledge of property law, including mineral rights and title opinions, can be a key asset if land interests and investments are part of your deceased loved one’s estate. Many Oklahomans have these interests; they take many forms, and we are devoted to protecting the ownership rights of individuals and families.
