Gary handled the estate and probate issues for her, allowing the sale to close as planned. His communication with the client is invaluable! Highly recommended.
We met with Gary to review of our Estate Plan and update all the associated documents. Our Revocable Joint Living Trust documents, Last Will & Testaments, and Health Care Power of Attorney’s for both my wife and I were reviewed and updated. We executed a Trust Amendment to incorporate changes over the past 17 years. It was a significant overhaul which included filing Quit Claim deeds on property purchased recently. Gary did a great job in getting us focused on all of the items that needed attention and getting everything current – it was far easier than expected.
I have known Gary since high school. He has helped me and members of my family with several legal matters. He did a tremendous job in helping my mother with her estate planning needs and was very flexible in working with her special needs. Gary has also helped me with various oil and gas legal issues concerning leasehold ownership. Gary is a marvelous attorney and an even better man.
We moved to Tulsa several years ago and contacted Gary to review our legal papers that were completed in 1996.

My wife and I bought a house and were renting it out as a small business, when we were referred to Gary to help us determine the best legal arrangement for our new business.

Gary recommended forming an LLC as the best option for our business and he provided all the necessary paperwork for us to complete our application and filed the required papers on our behalf.
