Experienced Oklahoma Probate Attorney Guiding You Through the Process
Probate is the process required after the death for a person who leaves one or more assets in their name alone. It is a legal proceeding that Attorney Julie A. Evans has 23 years of experience with and she knows how to ease the stress of probate for her clients who serve as Personal Representatives or who are heirs, devisees or legatees of a probate estate.
The process of probate
Most people who are named as Personal Representative in a Last Will and testament have never gone through the probate process before and know little about what to expect. Ms. Evans can guide you through the probate process, which includes:
Valuing and managing the estate
Ms. Evans assists Personal Representatives with the arduous process of collecting, managing, valuing, protecting and liquidating the assets of the estate. She has a team of experts available to assist in the various aspects of the administration of the estate. When needed, she calls upon accountants, financial advisers, real estate agents, property managers and other professionals to assist the Personal Representative with their duties.
Even in apparently straightforward probate estate cases, there are sometimes difficulties or disputes between heirs, devisees and legatees. Ms. Evans’ professional courtroom presence can calm an emotionally-charged process of probating a challenged will or other disputed issue. When it is in the best interests of her clients to preserve cordial familial relationships, she is experienced in mediating these disputes. However, when appropriate, Ms. Evans will assertively defend her client’s rights pursuant to Oklahoma probate court.
