Hi, I'm Mo
Johnson and I'm the publisher and editor of this website. I'm a retired
Army JAG (legal) officer who specialized in tax and estate planning
during my 20+ year military career. I no longer practice law, but enjoy
sharing what I have learned over the years with others. Most of the
content on the site was written or edited by me. I also have created
some videos you'll find in various places.
You can find out more about me at Estate Planning Hub. With that website, and this website, the goal is the same -- provide helpful, practical information about estate planning. The only difference is that this website focuses on a particular part of estate planning; namely, living trusts -- which I have increasingly become a fan of. You can find out why by viewing the video at what is a living trust?
Free-Living-Trust-Information.com is dedicated to demystifying living trusts. We don't promote or discourage the use of living trusts. Living trusts truly can be a valuable estate planning tool. The bottom line is that living trusts are great for some people and unnecessary for others. You need to find out which group you are in. Hopefully this site can help.
Our aim is to give you honest and straightforward information to help you make an informed decision. Ultimately, our goal really is to help you save money and help your heirs avoid a probate nightmare.
How do we do that?
If you spend some time on this site, one of two things will happen.
Either way you will save money and your heirs will be grateful you learned a bit about living trusts.
After reading through the FREE materials provided here, you will save money because either you will avoid paying for an unnecessary living trust; or, if you decide you want a living trust, when you meet with an attorney, you will already have a good idea what a living trust is, why you need it, and what you want it to do.
You'll know what your attorney is talking about and won't have to pay for his or her time to educate you.
Even though living trust and estate planning issues are complex, we try to keep the information on this site as concise and simple as possible. This site seeks to educate the public at large, not lawyers.
Obviously, in order to keep the content understandable and relatively simple, some issues cannot be addressed. This website cannot, and does not, provide its visitors with legal advice on their specific legal issues.
In order to ensure this site's objectivity, we do not prepare or market living trusts or other estate planning documents. In fact we do not accept individual estate planning clients at all.
We are always anxious to get feedback on the site and particularly to receive ideas about topics you would find useful to see covered. Please let us know if you have such comments by using the Contact Us form.
Thanks for visiting and we hope you'll return often.
