Estate & Probate Law

Our firm assists clients with preparation of wills, trusts, living wills, power of attorney and various other estate planning needs. We also assist with administering and probating estate cases
estate and probate

There are many important steps that must be taken as soon as possible after the passing of a friend or loved one to ensure that the affairs of that person (often referred to as the "decedent") are handled properly. If the person died after having previously executed a Last Will & Testament, or simply a Will, then the Will ordinarily must be probated.

Probate is the legal process that transfers the decedent's assets according to their Last Will & Testament following their death. Pat Layden Law Firm will work with the person named in the Will to be responsible for the probate process, to inventory the estate assets and liabilities, notify any creditors of the decedent, protect the estate assets, minimize estate tax liability, and, finally, distribute assets to the beneficiaries according to the terms of the Will.

The probate process in Oklahoma for a simple estate can be completed in less than six months. More complex estates, or in the event one or more beneficiaries contests the Will, the process can take much longer. Whether simple or complex, you can be certain that Pat Layden Law Firm and staff will use their experience and compassion to guide you through every step, in the most reliable and cost-effective way.

Our Practice Areas Include:
  • Ancillary Probate
  • General Probate
