Skillful Advisers Handle Oklahoma and Kansas Estate Planning

 Bartlesville Firm protects family assets

Careful estate planning gives people the chance to distribute their assets according to their wishes and values. Though some believe this type of legal assistance only benefits the wealthy, important decisions should be made regardless of your financial situation. At Robinett, King, Elias, Buhlinger, Brown & Kane, we take a personal approach to these concerns and work closely with Oklahoma and Kansas clients to develop comprehensive estate plans. With a 90+year legacy in this area, we understand the importance of setting and meeting long-term goals.

Knowledgeable attorneys prepare effective wills and trusts

Failing to make an appropriate estate plan exposes your family to unnecessary risks. Our qualified estate planning attorneys can implement a strategy to accomplish your specific goals through the creation of legal instruments such as:

  • Wills — We make sure that your will meets all legal requirements and sets forth clear instructions for the disposition of your property. Regardless of the size of your estate, our lawyers will make sure that you understand potential tax consequences and ways to ease the probate process. Even if you have already drafted a will, we can review its terms with you to ensure that the language is enforceable, up to date, and achieves the desired objectives.
  • Trusts — Trusts offer clients several benefits: the ability to direct how their funds should be used and the chance to have their estates avoid probate following their passing. One type of trust that many people choose is a living trust, which gives them the ability to enjoy what they own for their lifetime and then have their assets transferred directly to beneficiaries upon their death. We can explain how a trust might work as part of your estate plan.
  • Guardianship documents — Parents and others who have legal responsibility for children and disabled adults should always have a plan for their care in the event parents become incapacitated or die. Our lawyers assist families with guardianship provisions as well as methods of establishing financial support for bereaved children.

Hesitating or leaving these matters in the hands of someone not familiar with Oklahoma or Kansas law could result in an unfortunate outcome. We’ll give you and your loved ones the confidence of knowing that a sound plan is in place.

Thorough lawyers create advance medical directives in case of incapacity

If you suffer a personal injury or illness that leaves you incapacitated, an advance medical directive allows you to retain control over important decisions regarding your care. These documents can include a living will, which states what types of extraordinary measures should be taken if you’re experiencing a medical crisis, and a healthcare proxy, which appoints a trusted person to enforce your wishes.
