5.0 stars 10 totalReview John Horn
Like I imagine so many others do, my wife and I had long been putting off estate planning even though we knew it was something we really needed to do. Then, last year, my wife was facing a cancer diagnosis. We're relieved to say that she's since overcome her illness, but it suddenly became crucial that we work out this important planning process and contacted John Horn at Horn and Johnsen for assistance. John walked us through a number of options to ensure that our interests and the interests of our heirs (we each have children from prior relationships) were preserved through the establishment of a living trust. John explained everything thoroughly so that we were very comfortable with the decisions we made, and by the time our signatures were drying on the documents, we felt completely assured that we had a strong plan in place, and that what had been a significant source of worry had been comprehensively and permanently addressed. I highly recommend John Horn's services.
We worked with John Horn on our estate plan several years ago, and realty issues in the interim. John completely de-stressed the estate plan process for us, being thoroughly patient and informative in our discussions (and we came to the process really naive). When our financial situation changed significantly shorty after completing our estate plan and we thought we might need further services for modifications, John did not particularly encourage it. We truly got the sense that his first concern was what we needed, and not racking up billable hours. More recently, we were involved in a realty transaction which required standard legal documentation, and we secured John's help. When the other party demanded frivolous changes to the documentation ("frivolous" as assessed by multiple other parties involved) and created extra work, John indulged them to his own detriment (i.e., with no additional charges to us), and made sure that our transaction was successful. We would not hesitate to recommend the services of John Horn.
John was extremely knowledgeable and helpful in getting our estate planning in order. Throughout the entire process, he diligently answered our questions and carefully explained how our plans work. We highly recommend his services and expertise to anyone who is looking for an attorney who has his client's best interests at heart. Thanks John!
John really took the time to explain our trust and answer our questions. He is extremely knowledgeable and clearly passionate about what he does. My wife and I have great confidence in John's ability and character.
My husband and I had been putting off updating our Estate Plan for years. I was lucky enough to meet John through a mutual networking organization and was instantly impressed. Unlike the attorney we had hired to help us with a will years ago, John's expertise was estate planning, and was able to help us decide what made the most sense for our family. We just finished up our Living Trust a few weeks ago, and we both left his office so relieved knowing that (heaven forbid) if something were to happen to us, our children would be taken care of and our assets would be distributed as we intended. Thank you John for making this process easy and understandable! I would highly recommend John and his very qualified team to anyone wanting to protect their family and ensure their affairs are settled without a lengthy court process.

Putting together a Trust for you and your family can be overwhelming as you want to make sure you do all the right things of which, most, you don't understand anyway. It's because Trust's can be complex and that where a great Trust Attorney by your side, guiding you through the necessary elements, is so very important. John Horn is an Attorney you can Trust, for your Trust. I know, as he has been mine for over 6 years now and is wonderful in all ways. He is so knowledgeable and detailed and fair. I would highly recommend him for you and your family. He has also handled numerous Real Estate matters for me in Wisconsin and did a perfect job every-time with little fuss and great results.

We hired John a few months ago to sort out a messy trust. He sifted through a mess of codicils and amendments to resolve the issues. We then asked him to do the estate planning for ourselves. He made it all very simple while remaining open to all of our ideas. Being in the position of knowing how poorly a trust can be written I am confident that our own will be much easier for our children when the time comes. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to ANYONE needing these kinds of services.

I'd been putting off doing an estate plan because it seemed too daunting. A friend of mine had used John Horn to do his plan and said he had a good experience so I called for a consultation. John helped me put together a comprehensive plan in short order, and he really put me at ease throughout the process. His rates were very fair, too, especially given the amount of personal service he provided. Now that it's done, it's really a load off of my mind.

My partner and I were looking for an experienced estate planning attorney to help us decide whether to update our wills or replace them with trusts, and to execute the trust documents. Attorney Horn was very adept at the law, we felt he made excellent recommendations for some unique circumstances we have, and on top of that, his services were fairly priced.
