NFA Gun Trusts Wisconsin Pro-gun lawyer helps you estate plan

NFA Gun Trusts allow for individuals to hold and possess NFA items without them being 'papered' to them. This means people, in most cases, can purchase and acquire NFA items without being required to get local law enforcement to sign off. They offer superior protection against possible criminal liability, potentially sparing family members and others from the risk of felony prosecution. In addition, they provide for a safe, stable, and reduced cost structure of passing along your items to the next generation without paying the $200 federal tax stamp to transfer each item again.

It's worth the money for the peace of mind to set up a NFA trust through Grieve Law. I had mine set up during a group session, and he was very knowledgeable on the subject and was able to answer everyone's questions. If you're looking to set up a NFA trust, forget the cheapo online trusts, Grieve Law is the way to go!

My first meeting was outstanding. Tom is so thorough about these types of trusts, but more importantly he knows the law enforcement side that explains so well what to expect if you are stopped by law enforcement and how ATF looks at gun trusts. I could go on-and-on, but in the end walked out with the document I wanted. I would highly recommend Tom Grieve for anything related to firearms and following the law.

I recently hired Tom to write and execute an NFA gun trust for me. He was very knowledgable in the WI and federal gun laws and spent time explaining everything with me. Setting up the NFA trust was very easy and I feel very fortunate to have found Tom to help me. I will be recommending him to all of my friends and associates who would be interested in owning NFA items. Thanks Tom.
