“I went with a gun trust for several reasons, but mostly so my wife could legally open the safe with the NFA stuff in it when I wasn’t home. If you’re interested in a trust I highly recommend James N. Willi in Austin. He’s the only lawyer I’ve ever dealt with that did exactly what he said he would do, when he said he would do it, and for the price he quoted.”
“Thank you very much. You made this process very simple, easy, and quick. I will certainly refer people to you.”
“Thank you for preparing the trust and answering my questions. I am very glad I decided to go the route of talking to a ‘real’ lawyer experienced in the formation of these trusts and not buy an online, generic packet!”
“Outstanding! What a breeze!!! I can’t thank you enough for all of your help! Your knowledge of everything that I was unsure about really gave me a wonderful piece of mind during this process. I can honestly say you are squared away, and it shows through your work ethic! Thank you for being a phone call away for even the simplest questions! I will most definitely spread the good word of your services!”
“Thanks for all your help. You made the process easy and simple. You answered all my questions and provided any help I needed. Just received my approved Form 1 for my SBR. Have recommended you to all my friends who are apprehensive about doing a gun trust. Eased their worries and let them know that you can handle their situations, questions, and make the process easy and affordable. Thanks again!”
“I would highly recommend Jim Willi. Although I am an attorney, I would not trust myself to draft a bullet-proof (no pun intended) NFA Trust because it is such a specialized, technical document. After thorough research, I came to the conclusion that Jim was the best man for the job and produced the best product. I have not been disappointed; so far I have not had any hiccups with the ATF on account of my trust documents. Jim’s customer service is excellent as well: (i) my trust was provided in under an hour (distance does not matter since I live in the Dallas area and Jim is in Austin); (ii) Jim provided me with easy-to-follow instructions on how to file Form 1 and Form 4 documentation; (iii) Jim has repeatedly answered my questions (whether by phone or email) in a timely fashion; and (iv) Jim has offered to review my paperwork before I submit my Form 1 to the ATF. Jim is an excellent attorney and also a gun guy who figured out how to draft a NFA trust for his own use before offering his expertise to the public. My experience could not have been better. If you want a trust that will work (and some excellent customer service), in my opinion, Jim is the man.”
“Thank you for making this a very simple process. I was initially worried that the paperwork would take forever!”
“I just wanted to thank you for the wonderful NFA trust and service, sir. I’ve had five suppressors and two SBR’s approved so far. My only regret is that I didn’t do it 10+ years ago!! I give everyone that asks who did my NFA trust your name and telephone number. Thank you again, sir.”
“Jim, Thank you for the quick turnaround. Your firm truly is a one-stop shop.”
“All the reviews you have received are spot on. What a wonderful and painless experience this has been. I most definitely will recommend your services to anyone I know looking for a gun trust.”
“Jim Willi definitely exceeded all my expectations going into this process. I sent him an e-mail and within an hour my phone rang. Jim had all my documents sent to me and ready to print in just a few hours. No kidding, it was quick and efficient. I had my silencer ordered and lower engraved that week. I even sent my step-father his way to prepare his trust as well. Jim was also very helpful with clearing up any questions filling out ATF Form 1. I wish I would have called him sooner.”
“Jim Willi is the best! I called Jim for information on an SBR and a silencer. He set up a gun trust for me within a couple of hours of getting my information. I was able to purchase my suppressor and submit my ATF Form 1 for my SBR all in the same day. I was having trouble filling out my Form 1 on the ATF’s eform website, so I called Jim at 5:00 p.m. (on a Friday). He answered and was glad to walk me through the process over the phone. The thing I really like about Jim Willi is that, when you call his firm, you get to talk to him. At some other places I called prior to settling with Jim, I had to speak with a receptionist. I would recommend Jim to anyone wanting to set up an NFA trust because not only do you get a professionally written gun trust, but you also get the personal attention from Jim and that meant more to me than anything. Thanks again, Jim.”
“Jim made the process of getting my trust fast and painless. After speaking with Jim for an hour, I had my trust documents an hour later. He took the time to answer all of my questions thoroughly both before and after drafting my documents. I highly recommend Jim to anyone looking to set up their trust.”
“Jim – I just wanted to take the time to thank you for setting up my NFA Trust. You truly made the process as easy as it possibly could be and the help you gave me once I was actually purchasing my silencer was invaluable. Thanks again!! By the way I ordered that AAC 762 SDN from Silencer Shop today.”
“After considering a few different attorneys and their styles of setting up NFA trusts, I decided to call Jim Willi. He spent about 20 minutes answering all of my questions to my satisfaction and had the completed documents to me within the hour. Follow-up service has been excellent! A week after the trust was created, I decided to reorganize the trust and sent him an email with my requests. A response was received within four minutes and the revised documents were received within 14 minutes! Customer service has been excellent, and I will be recommending him to fellow shooters and friends.”
“I want to thank you for your assistance, patience and promptness in setting up my NFA Gun Trust and submitting suppressor application packets to the BATF. It was a big plus that questions, trust and transaction were done via phone and internet. You are someone that believes in our Second Amendment rights and the right to lawfully possess firearms and suppressors to responsible U.S. citizens. I must also add that your fee is very reasonable. I have and will continue to recommend you to anyone interested in a NFA Gun Trust.”
Before – “I used an attorney in Houston to write up an NFA trust for me recently. I have yet to buy anything in that trust. I now cannot get that attorney to call me back and go over some of the details of the trust with me. I am interested in using you to write up a new trust for me. Do you have time to talk tomorrow (Tuesday) about creating a new trust?” (5/2/2016)
After – “Thanks for everything today — the thoroughness of your documents, your willingness to answer questions and for the quick turnaround. I really appreciate it all.” (5/3/2016)
“Hello Jim and Tracy. I am an attorney admitted in the State of Indiana, and I have been employed as a Bank Trust Officer for over 30 years. Based on my education, my Indiana Bar Membership and my 30+ years of Trust experience… I am qualified to prepare my own Estate Planning and Trust documents. However, I have never done so, because I truly believe in the old adage… “An attorney who represents himself has a fool for a client.” Based on my perusal, I am very impressed with the quality of your NFA Trust Document Package… your professional attention to detail… and also with your prompt reply to my personal needs. Best Regards, J.H.”
“Thanks for making the overall trust process smooth and painless. It was worth every penny. I know my buddies feel the same way, and you’ll probably be getting contacted by another of our little group in the future as well. I will give you a call when I am ready to do my Form 1 for SBR and walk through the submission as we had discussed.”
“I just want to take a moment and say thank you. You have made this the simplest and most straightforward process I have ever experienced. Thank you for personally calling and taking time to explain everything. I am truly grateful for your help in making this a wonderful experience. Rest assured that I will be telling my friends and family where to go to have the best service possible. I am always pleased to work with men who seem to be truly professional and excellent at what they do and you, sir, are definitely in that category. Again, thank you.”
“All of my customers have said that you have taken good care of them. Much appreciated!”
“The gun trust documents look great. I am so glad we went to you instead of accepting the terrible generic trust document our local gun shop sold us. Your version is very well thought out and will work for us much better. Thanks again!”
“As we discussed by phone a few moments ago, I want to reiterate how much I appreciate your help in setting up our NFA Trust. Having dealt with many attorneys in my 40-plus-year professional life, I can say with certainty that you provided the greatest value for your fee of any attorney in my experience. I especially appreciate your thoroughness in reviewing the documents after execution and ensuring that all is in order. Again, many thanks. Feel free to use any part or all of my comments publicly if they would be useful to you or to encourage others to consider your NFA Trust creation services.”
“I would like to thank Mr. Willi for his personal phone call on Saturday, following up on my original email. The personal service and commitment truly sets your law firm apart from others.”
“Thank you so much for your help! I really appreciate how fast and painless it was to set up my trust. I will definitely refer your services to anyone I hear looking to set up a trust. I can’t thank you enough for walking me through the process and easing any fears I had along the way. Again, thank you for an incredible job.”
“Outstanding! Thank you very much!”
Jim, this is fantastic. I feel so much better about my legal footing after doing this through you. Thanks again man! Lets go shoot soon. I’m about to have a [new badass firearm] in my demo kit that we’ll need to blow the dust off of. Later!”
“I wish that I would have known about you sooner. I am completely impressed with your ability to get this done and your availability for any/all of my questions/concerns. I will be sure to share my positive experiences with everyone that I come in contact with that can use your services. Also, we will more than likely be in touch with you again for estate planning.”
“Mr. Willi, the pleasure was all mine, sir. You eased a lot of worries that were on my mind over this process. It’s safe to say the recommendations were all spot on, and I will gladly be recommending you to my friends as well!”
“Thanks for the super fast response and work. I’ll definitely be sending referrals your way!”
“Jim-you ROCK. Be sure to use me as a reference for future clients…I’ll walk you on water. Thanks again for such Great Service!!! Happy July 4th!”
“Awesome! Thanks for everything, Jim! This was quick and easy, great price, and you’re very thorough with the way you do business. I’ve already been spreading the word out here [in Afghanistan]. God Bless!”
“Thank you again for being so thorough. There are many people out there offering services to help form NFA trusts out there, but no one is as thorough as you are. I will recommend you to any of my friends and family who may be interested in forming a NFA trust.”
“Thank you for all of your help. You made this whole convoluted process very easy to digest. If anyone I know takes an interest in owning an NFA firearm in the future, I will definitely send them your way.”
“Thanks for this [amended and restated gun trust]. So much more comprehensive than my last gun trust [prepared by a Houston ‘gun trust’ attorney].”
“Jim, I cannot thank you enough for the prompt service and personal attention that you gave me concerning my NFA gun trust and my five ATF Form 1s. I just received all of my approved ATF tax stamps. I will certainly recommend you when the topic of NFA trusts comes up.”
“Great document and informational package you sent me. Very good job!”
“Thanks Jim for all your help. I can’t believe the hardest part of this process was getting everyone together to sign the forms. I wish I would have done this last year. If anyone I know ever considers setting up a NFA Trust I will direct them your way.”
“Thank you for the quick turnaround and for your knowledgeable assistance with my questions. I have also been impressed at how easy it is to get in touch with you personally.”
“Jim, Thank you so much for all your hard work. This couldn’t have been easier. You took the time to answer all of my questions and even took care of issues that I hadn’t even considered. I cannot say enough about your professionalism. I should have done this years ago. Thanks again.”
“I really appreciate the thoroughness and responsiveness with which you completed this work for me.”
“Thank you for your help in setting up my NFA trust. I cannot believe how quick and easy you made it.”
“Wow, that was quick and WAY more than expected. Thanks!”
“I will refer everyone to you I can. You made this process painless and explained everything in great detail.”
“Thanks so much for taking the time to set this up for me, and also for the excellent instructions you included. The end package is definitely more than I expected to get, and completely worth the investment! Thanks again!”
“I just wanted to say thanks for your work, Jim! The turn-around time was impeccable—2 hours. How could a person ask for any better customer service? Because of this, I was able to go purchase several new suppressors yesterday. I appreciate the detailed instructions as this was all new to me.”
“Thanks! Outstanding service.”
“Thanks! I have to say, WOW! This process was easy thanks to you!”
“Jim, One more thing, GREAT SERVICE!! THANK YOU!”
