Security Through Estate Planning
People often think that the goal of estate planning is to direct how assets are passed on to the next generation. In reality, estate planning is much more than that. It is about security. With a strong estate plan, you get the security of knowing that you, your family and your hard-earned assets will be protected in the event of incapacity or death.At the Jim A. Lyon Law Firm in Oklahoma City, we have more than 30 years of experience creating customized estate plans. Our lawyers will get to know your situation and your goals so we can create a one-of-a-kind estate plan that meets your needs.
Thinking Beyond The Will
An estate plan is much more than a simple will. A simple will does only the basics: it lists assets and dictates how they will be passed on. A more comprehensive estate plan can also protect you in the event of incapacity due to injury or illness, thanks to powers of attorney and advance directives. It can use more sophisticated techniques to ensure that your loved ones can make the most of the gifts you leave behind, thanks to trusts.
If your goals can be achieved with just a will, we can help you draft one. If you could benefit from other estate planning tools, we will make recommendations accordingly.
