Tulsa Wills and Trusts Attorney
Wills, living wills and trusts can be used to help manage your assets during your life, and help with the transfer to beneficiaries in the event of your death.
I am Maureen J. Knudson, an Oklahoma estate planning lawyer with almost 30 years of experience. I will meet one on one with you to explain the differences between wills and trusts, and work with you to determine the best option for you and your family.
The Importance of Drafting a Solid Will
Wills are the most common method for stating your wishes regarding the distribution of your assets upon your death. Despite their importance, however, it is estimated that at least 70 percent of people do not have valid wills. As your attorney, I will help you draft a solid will to help avoid potential estate disputes, tax issues and other significant problems for your beneficiaries.

Trusts are powerful estate planning tools that can help you plan for unexpected contingencies. They also can be used to avoid probate and minimize the impact of taxes. Trusts allow more flexibility when planning for your beneficiaries, which can help if you have a blended family, disabled family members or other special circumstances.
I have extensive experience helping clients design a trust to meet the needs of their unique family situation. I will explain the different types of trusts and how they can be used, including how special needs trusts prevent beneficiaries with disabilities from losing their Medicaid or SSI benefits.
