The post-rapture edition: Estate Planning Demystified – The Will

In this week’s “post-rapture” edition of Estate Planning Demystified (Episode number 5), I discuss one of the oldest and most well-know estate planning documents:

The Last Will and Testament

I cover some topics including:

1. Some history of the Will;

2. What a person can accomplish in a Will;

3. The things that you need to do to make the Will legal; and

4. A story about person making Will that they thought had them covered only for the surivors to find out that it did not work!

If you have any questions or comments about the Last Will and Testament or anything else, please email me at or visit my website

On this blog, I write about and try to answer practical Oklahoma legal questions. My focus and most experience is in estate planning and business issues including Oklahoma non-compete law. I make a living as an attorney in the law firm I founded, Shawn J. Roberts, P.C. in Oklahoma City. I live in Edmond with my wife Amy and my two children, Sam (19) and David (11). We live precisely in the path of where the "wind comes sweeping down the plains."
