Effective Guidance For Wills And Trusts

Wills and trusts are important aspects of many estate plans. They ensure that your wishes are made clear and your most precious assets are protected. To be most effective, however, wills and trusts must align with your goals and leave no room for interpretation. At The Pilkington Law Firm, PLLC, in Tulsa, we have the experience and problem-solving skills to ensure your estate planning documents hold up when you need them to.

Why You Need A Will

If you die without a will, your estate will be administered according to Oklahoma law. Typically, this means your spouse will be a primary beneficiary followed by your children. Relying on the state to divide your assets can lead to arguments between family members who all think they know what you would have wanted. It can also result in a final decision that is not in line with your wishes.

The best way to avoid this situation is to craft a comprehensive and detailed will that makes it very clear how you want your estate to be distributed upon your death. Lawyer Gilbert J. Pilkington, Jr. can accomplish this for you. He will also walk you through other important documents that can protect your best interests, including powers of attorney and advance health care directives.

Protecting Your Assets With A Trust

Trusts can effectively protect your assets from estate taxes and avoid the time-consuming and complicated probate process. Once we understand your long-term goals, we can help you determine the right type of trust for you. Some we will consider include:

  • Irrevocable trusts
