Protecting The Rights And Wishes Of Families Throughout Oklahoma
In our years of focused estate law practice at Ellis & Ellis, we have seen how sometimes family members will dispute aspects of the probate process. At times they have legitimate concerns; at other times, emotions and old family wounds are pushing them into court.
No matter what the cause, we undertake these cases with knowledge, care and compassion. Our lawyers — Hal Ellis, LeAnn Drummond Ellis — are attorneys and counselors at law. We take our roles as counselors very seriously. Knowing that these are emotionally charged situations, we do much counseling. Whenever possible, we truly work to find a reasonable solution outside of court, helping family members work through underlying issues and receive satisfactory resolution.
Most judges incline this way as well, often imposing mediation or a settlement process. But if the case belongs in court, know that we will work on behalf of our clients, protecting their rights while preserving the wishes of their deceased loved ones.
