Biography

I migrated from North Dakota to Oklahoma City in 1998 to attend Southern Nazarene University. After obtaining a B.S. in 2002, I attended Oklahoma City University School of Law, where I served on the board of editors for the law review and graduated with highest honors in 2005.

From 2006 to 2014, I worked as an in-house prospect landman for a major independent oil and gas producer. In 2014, I left the corporate world for private practice, where I serve clients in the areas of probate and oil & gas.

“Need a lawyer that you can trust like a family member? Matt is your guy! He is a kind, talented, intelligent lawyer who treats his clients' cases as if they are his own. I highly recommend Matt without any reservations.” - Justin G.

"Matt was easy to work with. He listened to all our concerns. He responded promptly to all communications and completed the job quickly. I recommend Matt and expect to work with him again in the future." - Ruth N.

25 Questions Answered
Q. My grandmother gave me property. I have been living on the property for almost 30 years. She passed. Need in my name.
A: I am sorry for your loss. The answer to this question depends on numerous factors, primarily how she "gave" you the property. For example, did she add you as a joint tenant, did she leave it to you in her will, etc. You should contact an attorney to discuss the situation. Most provide free consultations and can probably point you in the right direction in a brief 10 minute phone call.
Q. Oil rights
A: The answer depends on many factors, but it sounds like you are probably looking at a joint probate of two estates if you want to legally transfer the minerals from your uncle to your father's children. That being said, bear in mind that if there are liquid assets in the estate (like royalty payments held in escrow at Marathon Oil), there's often no up front cost to you. The attorney's fees can be paid out of the estate at the end of probate. Many probate attorneys, like myself, are happy to provide a free consultation to discuss the specifics of your situation and then quote you a flat rate to handle everything.
Q. Home of deceased parents not listed in their revocable trust, do we have to go thru probate? Or can we sell
A: Yes, you will need probate. There's no small estate affidavit for real estate in Oklahoma. Real estate held in the individual names of the decedents must be probated to transfer marketable title to the heirs. If the home is the only probate asset, however, the probate process can be relatively quick and cheap.
