Jeremy was extremely informative and thorough in the review and updating of our family trust. He made several suggestions and improvements to our current trust and charged a very reasonable fee. He explained all the changes and improvements thoroughly and offered assistance in interpreting the final documents. He was courteous and pleasant and always available. A pleasure to deal with.

My wife and I are in our late 30's and knew that with 2 kids, an estate plan would be an important tool for our family. Jeremy came highly recommended as an expert in this space from our financial advisor. Our first interaction put my wife and I at extreme ease because Jeremy took the time to address all of our concerns and in a way that made the process simple to understand. Not only did he agree to meet us after regular business hours, his demeanor and professionalism removed the anxiety of dealing with a topic we simply did not understand. I appreciated Jeremy's willingness to repeat himself often to ensure our understanding, especially in how he was able to explain all of the various options for every part of our estate plan.
When we met to review the prepared plan, Jeremy again met us at our convenience and walked through every page and line of the plan. He ensured our comprehension and provided the necessary context as to why each section included the information needed to fully protect our interest and desires.
Jeremy made the entire process easy and made my wife and I completely comfortable from beginning to end. Just knowing the plan is in place and written in the manner that it is has made us feel that this is one of the best investments we have ever made in our lives. Thank you Jeremy!

Mr. Johnson, thank your helping me to bring my estate planning situation up-to-date. After 12 years of working with another law firm, I should have made the transition to JOHNSON, GASINK & BAXTER sooner. Thank you for being responsive.

I found Jeramy to be fair, thorough and obviously very well informed in his expertise - Estate planning.
I do not hesitate in recommending him to those seeking an attorney who has estate planning needs.

We first met Jeremy at Ferris & Assoc. and were very pleased when he started his own firm and followed him to JGB. He is a very trustworthy individual who ensures you are up to date on the latest legal changes and challenges and ensures you are ready for possible future changes when it comes to your estate, trust and tax matters. He is patient, friendly and keeps current on your estate manager, CPA and any other individuals involved in your estate and trust. We definitely recommend Jeremy to anyone seeking advice on trusts, elder law, and tax matters.

My wife and I met Jeremy through a Financial Planning seminar we took at TCC, where he spoke about the importance of "asset protection". His presentation convinced us we needed to take some action beyond the "on-line will" we had up to then, so we followed up with an office visit. During the visit he presented to us the advantages and disadvantages / in's and outs of wills and living trusts. Based on our estate, he recommended a trust, which we decided to execute with him. On the day we met to finalize it, Jeremy walked us thoroughly through each section, explaining it's content and relevance and patiently and completely answering our questions. We're proud to have taken this important step to ensure our assets are protected and ultimately distributed the way we intend for them to be. We're very happy to have met Jeremy and are 100% confident in him and the trust he created for us.

Jeremy prepared a re-statement of our 15 yr. old trust, for my wife and I. In all our meetings Jeremy was very professional, and forthright. His expertise, experience and respect were very assuring. We are confident with our Trust/Estate Plan. I would recommend Jeremy to anyone interested in his expertise and practice.

Jeremy and his firm have continually taken care of my family and clients estate planning needs with the highest level of quality and care.
Posted by Roger, a Trusts client, Flag
My wife and I found it necessary to update our Family Trust and since our previous attorney had retired, decided to contact Jeremy. Our research indicated he was a good lawyer and was in the field of law we needed so we met with him and were very impressed.
He passed along the major changes since our Trust was last reviewed and set about redoing it for us. Upon its completion he sat down with us and literally reviewed every important aspect of the document, including specific items that we need to update and monitor.
We will certainly be seeing him again as we maintain the Trust on a more "timely" basis.

Mr. Johnson designed and executed a comprehensive and thorough Living Trust for me and my family. He quickly understood our needs and ultimately structured a clear and easy to manage transition process for moving assets into the trust. He and his staff were a pleasure to work with, first exploring in depth a number of alternatives, then suggesting a specific approach that best reflected our needs. I would not hesitate to highly recommend the services of Mr. Johnson and his office to any of my family, friends, and colleagues.

Jeremy prepare a comprehensive estate plan for me and my wife.

Jeremy and his staff were extremely prompt in returning calls and/or emails and they always had an answer to our questions. We have come away from Jeremy's estate planning process satisfied with our experience and with peace of mind knowing that nothing will be left to chance.

The importance of Estate Planning
Jeremy has been my attorney for eight years. He is knowledgeable and keeps up to date on current issues which he shares during my annual review. I am very pleased with his attention to detail and the manner in which he customizes my trust to fit my personal needs.

Attorney Jeremy Johnson is an outstanding estate planning lawyer. His expediency in working us in to his schedule due to my wife’s medical condition is a vivid example of his care and understanding of executing our estate plans. We were completely satisfied with the manner, application and professionalism he displayed in working our estate needs. He was thorough, patient and informative in his presentation. We have dealt with previous estate attorneys. No doubt in our minds, Jeremy is the best attorney we have had the pleasure and confidence execute our estate plans.

We continue the professional relationship with Estate Planning reviews annually..
Posted by Gary & Dee, a Trusts client, Flag
What can I say about Jeremy Johnson that the firm has not heard before. He is a gentleman, very proficient at what he does, most courteous and is able to respond to any and all of your questions during a meeting.
Jeremy has been our principal lawyer from day one when we first started inquiring about the Trust. His presentation at the Civil Service Retirement Conference, explaining what we can and cannot expect coupled with the protection and security of assets is what enabled Dee and myself to sign up for the Trust without hesitation.
At our meeting this year, Jeremy explained the recent codes and compliance changes to VA law that impacts our Trust. Because of these legal changes our Trust was out of date and needed to be updated.
By signing up for Trust Guard we were able to make these changes during our annual review of the Trust with Jeremy. Please note the time and money spent is well worth the thought of knowing your assets are protected and will be passed along to our kids.
My compliments to Jeremy on a job well done. Again thank you for keeping us on a straight and narrow path.

After interviewing a number of estate planning attorney's Jeremy was our obvious choice. We found his credentials and performance to be extremely impressive and we are very happy to have him on our family estate planning team. His attention to detail was second to none.
Posted by Pam, a Trusts client, Flag
Jeremy gave a presentation in my community regarding trusts and wills as part of an ongoing seminar for women. I felt very comfortable asking him questions and came away with learning! I ended up making an appointment to review my needs as a recent widow. He is very easy to understand and I did not feel uncomfortable asking him to "spoon feed" me. I do feel that I am in good hands.
Posted by Bill, a Trusts client, Flag
This was my first experience in setting up an NFA trust. I interviewed two other lawyers in the area who had been recommended by others. Jeremy had a quick grasp of my needs and knew all the in’s and out’s of an NFA trust. He took a lot of time to explain the advantages of having a NFA trust. The process was well organized and presented in clear terms. His professional conduct was exemplary. I am now very comfortable having Jeremy do this specific special trust for me. I would recommend him to anyone.
Posted by Mark, a Estate Planning client, Flag
Mr. Johnson and his staff were outstanding. They provided execlelent guidance and explanation of laws and requirements, and were always highly professional and very friendly. I strongly recommend this team for anyone considering establishing a trust or doing other estate planning.
Posted by Jim Trant, a Estate Planning client, Flag
Jeremy and his paralegal, Lauren, are the epitome of professionalism. They guided my wife and I through the estate planning process with patience and compassion. Jeremy met with us and took as much time as we needed to explain the components of the trust and why each component was included. To say that I would recommend Jeremy as an estate planning attorney is a gross understatement. His work and his whole staff's work has been exceptional. I feel that Jeremy has done exactly what we set out to do when we began to try to protect our privacy and our assets.

Jeremy provided my wife and me with excellent legal, estate planning and tax advice and service. He is extremely knowledgable regarding federal and Virginia estate and tax laws. As a retired member of the Virginia state bar and a Certified Financial Planner, I am very impressed with Jeremy's knowledge and ability to explain complex estate, legal and tax concepts. He provided all necessary documents in a timely manner in advance of our trip overseas. My wife and I completely trust Jeremy and his firm with our estate planning needs. He has our higest recommendation.
Posted by Jim, a Trusts client, Flag
We met Jeremy as we were trying to establish a Living Trust, Living Will, and Health Care Power of Attorney on a short timeline. We were immediately impressed by Jeremy's no-nonsense, reasonable-man approach to designing exactly the type of document we desired. He and his staff produced a thorough, comprehensive set of documents on time and as promised. Jeremy went the extra step of sitting back down with us once the paperwork was complete to explain in detail everything we were signing and putting into effect. I cannot imagine a better experience in establishing an extremely important set of documents that will benefit our family far into the future. If you need someone with outstanding character and a practical approach to establishing what could otherwise be a daunting, burdensome, paperwork nighmare, Jeremy is the attorney to call. You will be pleased beyond your expectations.

My husband and I met Jeremy at a retirement seminar. We were impressed right from our first meeting. Jeremy was very thorough, extremely professional and took a great deal of time in explaining our will and trust. He made sure we considered everything in preparing our trust. We've recommended him to several friends.
Posted by David, a Trusts client, Flag
My wife and I were referred to Jeremy Johnson by our estate planners. We needed to establish a living trust for ourselves and our son. We were very impressed with Jeremy and his staff. He explained the intricacies of the trust process in great detail, including the numerous options we needed to navigate.
Jeremy delivered everything on time, and the results exceeded our expectations. The extensive documentation, both on paper and in electronic format, reflects a meticulous attention to detail. The fee for all this work was not insignificant, but we feel it was a bargain. Since we executed the trust, Jeremy and his staff have been very helpful with a series of real estate and insurance transactions, making it clear that they stand behind their work and are committed to providing excellent service.
Throughout the process, we have been impressed with Jeremy's integrity, intelligence, and sense of humor. He is a very personable individual, and very easy to work with.
I recommend him to anyone in need of an attorney in his practice areas.

I transitioned from the US Navy in 2005 at the rank of Captain following 26 years as a naval aviator. I know what professionalism is and recognize how vital "attention to detail" can be.....the devil is in the details. Jeremy exceeded our expectations in the preparation and execution of our estate planning process. It is very comforting to know that he is in our corner and watching our backs. I fully intend to have Jeremy assist with my business endeavor as well.
Posted by Dean, a Trusts client, Flag
Jeremy assisted with the creation of my trust and I have to say, while this was a new undertaking for me and an unfamiliar process, Jeremy helped me feel confident and in control of a very important and critical part of my family's future. His work was so incredibly thorough that since being presented with the final documents I have spoken to others who did not have half the special clauses, thought and consideration in their similar documents as Jeremy ensured mine had. Truly an experience that I initially dreaded and by the end took an enormous amount of anxiety and stress off my shoulders. I would recommend him to any and everyone.

Excellent attorney. Knowledgeable and comprehensive. Very good at explaining technical info in easy terms to understand. Using Jeremy was one on the best decisions I have made.
Posted by Bill, a Wills client, Flag
I have had the pleasure to work closely with Jeremy and his firm over the past six years. As a former trust officer and life insurance agent for forty years, I am very careful who I recommend to my clients to prepare their wills and trusts. Jeremy has the unique talent of being a teacher, explaining to clients the basics of drafting these very important documents. He takes the extra time to make sure clients understand the flexibilities of proper planning.
In preparing our wills and trusts, Jeremy made my wife feel very comfortable with his style and presentation.
Posted by George, a Estate Planning client, Flag
This was our first experience in setting up our estate planning. We interviewed three lawyers in the area who had been recommended by other professionals in the city. Jeremy seemed to have a quick grasp of our needs. He asked all the required questions and explained to us how our answers affected his approach. Once he had gathered the information in a single meeting he and his staff were able to assemble a complete package for trust, living will, POA, etc. He gave us pdf copies of everything so we could keep it handy in case of say, medical emergencies, and share also appropriate sections with our adult children. His office also quickly handled title transfer of our house to the trust. He and his staff were friendly and helpful throughout the process. I would recommend him to anyone.

I am very fortunate to be a client of Jeremy Johnson. He took a lot of time to explain the advantages of having a Trust. The process was well organized and presented in clear terms. His professional conduct was exemplary. I am now very comfortable that my wishes are in order.

Superb in all respects. I hired Jeremy Johnson to prepare my revocable trusts. I am also dealing with two other trust lawyers in settling my parents estate. Jeremy Johnson far outshines those other two. If he had prepred my parents trusts, I would not have the issues I am dealing with in settling their estates.

Posted by Stuart, a Estate Planning client, Flag
Jeremy is professional and personable. He does a very nice job of explaining estate issues and trusts. He listened to us and paid attention to our needs. He was always prepared for meetings. He always refreshed himself on our particular situation prior to any appointments. We never had the feeling that you sometimes get with lawyers appointments that it is always the first time they have looked or thought about your file regardless of how many times you have met. We also felt he had actually done the work. Again, we never got the feeling that he had just passed this off to assistant and wasn't personally involved with the details. He also inspired a lot of confidence. We felt he really knew the law and the details of estate planning. He also put us at ease that he and his firm would be there to assist in future planning, keeping the estate up to date and also executing any of the estate.

Mr. Johnson put together our family trust and shepperd us through the process with exceptional service. His team works together to ensure you walk out of their office with everything you need to protect your family.

i had been thinking about becoming an LLC for my real estate business for several years - but really had not done anything to make it happen. after a quick conversation with jeremys wife about wanting to do so, she recommended that i make an appointment with jeremy at his office. i called, set up the appointment, they sent me some simple paperwork to fill out and bring with me to the appointment - i did and showed up at the appointment, met with jeremy who explained the process, and set up a follow up appointment for a month later, and voila - it was complete!!! so great - really really helpful, and convenient. happy to have done it!!
Posted by Budd, a Estate Planning client, Flag
We've put off estate planning and establishing a trust for many years due to cost/complexity/knowledge. We had a no cost consultation with Mr. Johnson. He translated legalize into layman's language, was up front with all costs and what was needed by us to properly establish our living trust, power of attorney and will. Final documents were explained in detail. Extremely happy with results. Highly recommend.

We entered in a discussion on setting up a trust for a specific purpose; Jeremy listened to our needs & constructively put together our perceived needs & 'unknown' needs.

Jeremy made my experience in estate planning easy - I know when I pass, that my wishes will be met. He also helped set it up so that my family will not have to deal with the legal stuff while they are dealing with their own emotions.
Great knowledge and recommendations. No question went unanswered.

Assisted us with estate planning, was a true professional
Posted by Richard, a Estate Planning client, Flag
Jeremy, and his firm, were outstanding in helping me and my wife understand and plan for the nuances of estate planning. He was exceptionally thorough and took pains to explain the process we would be going through in building a comprehensive Estate Plan. With his guidance and support, we now have a written Revocable Living Trust, an Irrevocable Life Insurance Trust, and all the attendant medical and living will documents. It was a painless process, and Jeremy and his exceptional Paralegal, Lauren, were there to help us through every step. Perhaps the greatest compliment I could pay was that when we were finished, my wife turned to me and asked me why it had taken so long for us to get started on this process! Needless to say, we are both very satisfied customers and would recommend his firm without hesitation.

Jeremy Johnson prepared our estate/will documents and helped us establish a corporation in Virginia. He is very professional and knowledgeable in both areas.
