As a gun enthusiast and very small collector I had recently become aware of Gun Trusts and the legal, financial and asset protection that they can provide to my family and myself. I did some reading around the subject regarding the content, scope and cost of having a Gun Trust prepared. After a couple of referrals to other attorneys that did not workout, the last attorney, who did not prepare Gun Trusts referred me to John Mangan, Jr.

I made an appointment to meet with John to find out more about Gun Trusts and if I truly needed one. I had many questions. I was interested in operating within the law with gun ownership and use particularly with National Firearms Act (NFA) items, possession and use of NFA items by a family or friend and transfer of ownership through the generations to family members. John listened intently to my questions and wishes then explained it all to me with detailed crystal clarity. I was confident that my attorney, John Mangan Jr., had the specific set of skills to prepare a tailor made Gun Trust to meet my needs. It was not going to be the cheapest Gun Trust that was available to me, but I knew the content would be what I was looking for and that it would be prepared by an attorney who had the special interest and knowledge in this area of law.

If you think you need a Gun Trust there are two basic questions that you need to ask yourself. What do you want in YOUR Gun Trust and who do you want to prepare it? I have no reservations in recommending John Mangan, Jr., Esq. to you. Thank you, John.

I met John at a local chamber of commerce meeting and I knew right away that he was the person to help my family and I get our family affairs & estate planning in order. We had not done so previously and I felt it was on the top of my to do list. His professionalism, expertise and personal comfort that he gave me was immeasurable, especially because during the time of getting everything in order, we experienced a tragic death in the family. He was immediately available to help us work through this difficult and unexpected time in our lives. I can tell you first hand that if you haven’t done your estate planning yet or haven’t updated it in awhile, you must do so without hesitation. I highly recommend John to be that person for you!

I was putting off moving forward with my Estate Planning and updating my Will after my husband passed away a few years ago. I happened to meet John Mangan at a business function and was very impressed by his demeanor.  I was so comfortable after meeting him that I decided to move forward with hiring him to help me. He made a very difficult, daunting task very easy for me.  I felt like the weight of the world was lifted off my shoulders.  I have, and will continue to recommend this upstanding attorney.

John was very informative and spent time with me reviewing my needs.  Easy to work with.  I am resting easier now knowing this is taken care of.  Thanks, John.

John, I want to personally thank you for your support to me in developing my trusts. I was most impressed with your structured process and spending time with me so that I would have a understanding of all items that are included in my trusts. I have recommended you to my family and friends. It has been a pleasure to have you provide service to me.

The process of putting a will together with John Mangan was smooth and painless. John was a pleasure to work with and we will definitely recommend his services.

I cannot recommend John Mangan enough for his work. He was extremely thorough, very patient and I thought very forward thinking bringing up scenarios that would never have occurred to me. He nursed my wife and I along and we are completely satisfied with the results and the peace of mind that comes with having John as our Estate planner.

A little over a year ago we had a really crazy event happen in our family. It was a bit scary and overwhelming at the time. I called a very trusted friend and asked her what I should do about this. She gave me some good advice and then told me that Bernie (my husband) and I needed to find a great lawyer to get our will done.

 

We have two little boys and we knew since before they were born that we needed to get this done, but I guess we always kept it at the back burner – so to speak. I started calling law firms that specialized in estate planning and everyone seemed to think that writing up a will was just a quick little piece of paperwork and were directing me to their paralegals.

 

But, I didn’t want a paralegal! I wanted a really good lawyer!

 

So, we moved down to Florida and I went out to a moms group in an attempt to make new friends. It just so happened that John Mangan came to the group and spoke about estate and will planning while he was there. He went over lots of details, spoke about sticky family situations, and even said that if we had our will done with him he’d check in with us every few years for needed updates as our family would grow and change. It was like an angel had fallen out of the sky for us! I was completely impressed with him and called my husband after loading the kids in the van to tell him that I thought I found our lawyer.

 

We met with him about a month later (it’s hard to find a sitter in a new place!) and started going through the process of getting our will done. John asked great questions that even we had never thought of and was so careful to make sure he explained exactly everything that we signed or filled out. At our last meeting, Bernie and I answered 21 questions that John had sent us. These questions went over any important knowledge or ways we would make certain decisions concerning how the boys would be raised. It was all recorded so our boys could hear our voices should we not make it to those milestones in their lives.

 

Our whole experience with John was so much more than what we ever expected when we thought of putting together our will. We’ve highly recommended him many times already and are so grateful to know that should God call us home, our boys are completely taken care of in this earthly life.

Hello, John.  I just wanted to say thank you for everything you have done for my husband and I. I was recently diagnosed with a brain tumor and it has been such a HUGE relief to know that all the important stuff is already done. My tumor looks to be benign and I am in the “wait and watch” phase, but I am going to be visiting a lot of doctors in different states because I want to make sure that I am doing the right thing and that I have the right doctors doing it.

 

Thanks to you: my HIPPA, Health Care Surrogate, and Living Will are already done so my family can stay up-to-date on all my visits and make decisions for me if I am unable to do so; my temporary guardianship is already done so my husband or my mother can travel with me and my family and friends can take care of my daughter; and my husband has Durable Power of Attorney so all my affairs can be handled by him in the event something goes wrong.I never thought at my age that I would need all of those things, but overnight it has become such a blessing to have them already done.From the bottom of my heart, I thank you for giving us the tools we need and for making it so easy!
