        James Murray was quick to respond in a serious time of need. I would recommend my attorney James Murray to anyone who wants a serious lawyer. He is great in the courtroom and was great advocating for me and my children. James and staff are courteous, helpful, and professional. James always made time to discuss all matters with me, answer all my questions, and put my worries at ease. I called Murray Law Firm and it was the best call I ever made!

        The staff at Murray Law Firm met or exceeding all of my expectations. They do everything in their power to provide you with the most recent information they have available to them. They are a friendly group that makes you feel like they are fighting the fight with you as a partner. Thomas represented me extremely well, spending hours reviewing the case. I visited with three firms prior to finding Murray Law Firm and I can personally vouch for them in saying that your time would be wasted elsewhere.

        I used James Murray for my divorce after 25 years. This has been my only time Ive needed a attorney. James was one of the best decisions ive made besides the divorce. He went above and beyond. I got everything i wanted plus. I have since sent many of my friends that need a attorney for any reason. James i thank you very much and will refer you because i believe you are the best in town.

        I had been married almost 31 years when my husband passed away from an accident. I’d lost the love of my life, my rock and the person I counted most! He was in many ways my financial support system. I was going to need an attorney. One with experience, and that could handle a case like mine.Murray Law Firm took on a trucking company and their insurance company while continually working to produce results even when the insurance company worked hard not to pay a fair amount! In closing I couldn’t have been more pleased with the efforts that Murray Law Firm gave on my behalf and that of my family.

        Avoiding Probate

        Probate is a process that your attorney will initiate to validate a will. A lot of people wish to avoid probate for a number of reasons. The reasons people want to avoid include:

        • How slow it is
        • How much money it costs
        • How public it is

        Probate takes time. Sometimes years, particularly if the will is complicated or has a lot to debate over. Probate isn’t free. It costs money, and people generally want to avoid added expenses, especially when there is a threat of expenses for an extended period of time. Also, the process is all public record, which might bother some people who wish for their business to remain private.

        Our Stillwater estate planning lawyers can help you understand this and plan in an easier way.

        Why You Shouldn’t Die Without a Will

        If you don’t have a spouse, it will be different in terms of what happens to your estate. Unmarried people will have their estate given to living parents. If there are no living parents, the estate goes to siblings and is equally divided.

        If you are unmarried with no living parents, siblings, nieces or nephews, then your estate goes to family members on your mother’s side and your father’s side in equal parts.

        If you have children but no spouse, then your estate will be given to them. If there are multiple children, the estate gets divided between them.

        By not having a will, you leave all of this to be indiscriminately divided between your family. For most people, that is not what they would consider to be the best scenario.

        The scenario looks similar if you die without a will, but were married. Your estate goes to your spouse. Or it could be divided among your spouse, siblings, and parents if the estate is your separate property. If you had children in this marriage, then the entire estate goes to your spouse if they’re living.

        Most people would like for certain people to get certain things when they pass. If you have any specific wishes as to what happens with your estate, then you’re going to want to set up a will.

        Dying without a will means that you can’t give your granddaughter that pearl necklace you had when you were her age. It means you can’t pass down your grand piano to your musician nephew. Dying without a will means that everything you own gets split up and given to family without any rhyme or reason. Contact our Stillwater estate planning lawyers to make sure that this doesn’t happen. 

        Why You Should Hire an Stillwater Estate Planning Lawyer 

        While you certainly could choose not to plan, we strongly advise against it. We want to protect you and your loved ones from having to deal with a lot of stress after your passing. Things get very complicated if there are no wills or trusts or anything planned ahead.

        A Stillwater estate planning lawyer will be able to advise you on how to best handle all of your affairs in the way they should properly be handled. We take away the stress of planning for you and the stress of dealing with everything for your family.

        This is what we do best. It’s not wise to go to someone who handles family law or DUI cases and ask them if they will also do your estate planning. Choose someone who does this all the time, not someone who will figure it out as they go. Estate planning is so important. You wouldn’t want it to go badly. Work with a lawyer who you can trust to get it right.
