Estate Planning Information

Tulsa County Estate Planning and Probate

No two families are identical in their needs.  Whether you are ready to start the estate planning process, or you have to administer your loved one's Will through probate, you want a lawyer who will identify the issues most relevant to your family and come up with solutions tailored to your needs.

I am Tulsa estate planning attorney, L. Michele Nelson, and I have been helping Oklahoma families with their estate planning and probate needs since 1996.  My practice is focused on the planning and administration of estates.  My firm also handles related concerns, such as guardianships and elder law and small business planning.  I have a Masters of Law (LL.M.) in Taxation, and I am uniquely qualified to handle complex business succession and tax planning.

Unique Solutions for Every Client

I do not believe in a one-size-fits-all estate plan.  I will take the time to sit down with you, listen to your concerns and figure out how you want your estate distributed.  Through learning more about your family dynamics and what is most important to the people you love, I will help you come up with a plan that works best for the different personalities in your family.

Having spent my entire career focused on estate planning and estate administration and elder law issues, I am prepared to handle a wide range of concerns.  I have been appointed by the court to work as a fiduciary in difficult cases, and I have served as chair of the Estate Planning, Probate and Trust Sections of both the Tulsa County and Oklahoma Bar Associations, as well as having served as chair of the Legislation Committee of the Oklahoma Bar Association's Estate Planning Section.  I have worked within the Oklahoma Bar Association not only in leading educational seminars, but also in drafting legislation in areas of probate, trust and estate law.

I have lectured for both general and attorney audiences on estate planning and probate matters through the Oklahoma and Tulsa County Bar Associations.  I have also spoken at seminars held by the Alzheimer's Association, to help affected families find practical solutions.


There are a lot of estate planning options available.  With an experienced attorney to guide you through the process, you can find the options that work best for your family.  From my offices in Tulsa, I offer a flexible appointment schedule, including appointments outside my office.  I accept credit cards for your convenience.  Contact me today to schedule your initial consultation.
