Outstanding Estate Planning
Jeremy took the time to personally get to know my wife and I and then customized an estate plan to meet all our needs. The entire process from start to finish was thoroughly and professionally handled.

Excellent development of trust and related documents
Jeremy took our old wills, powers of attorney and medical directives and built a first class trust with plentiful options to account for whatever circumstances arise over the next few years. his staff was methodical, easy to work with and accurate. We have great confidence in Jeremy's ability to execute the trust when we pass and ensure that our desires are full met.

Outstanding Support
Our family received outstanding professional and courteous support from Attorney J. Johnson throughout the estate planning process. His verbal and written guidance was crystal clear. His personal presentations were delivered in plain language. He answered our questions clearly and made sure we all had the chance to address individual concerns. We appreciate his time and patience.

Jeremy did a great job helping us set up our estate plan. From our first conversation we were very comfortable with Jeremy. He explained all the steps in detail and was very flexible working to set up a plan that was just right for our situation. He made many suggestions and recommendations that greatly improved our original thoughts on what we needed. I highly recommend Jeremy for any estate planning work.

Estate planning assistance
Mr. Johnson was recommended by our Financial Planner for Estate Planning work we wanted done. We met with him twice; first to go over our needs and discuss his recommendations; then to review the completed documents. Jeremy and his team are professional, courteous and thorough. He put us at ease and made the whole process go very smoothly. We strongly recommend him

Superb Trust Planning support with a Friendly smile
Jeremy was recommended to us by our financial planner in Manassas and he lived up to his recommendation. Jeremy put us at ease as he explained what Estate Trust Planning was and wasn't, and answered all our questions in clear terms that were easily understood. It felt like we've known him for years rather than minutes. He promised documentation in a specific time period and was on schedule as promised.

Better than a "White Shoe" Law Firm
Johnson, Gasink was the firm recommended by our previous attorney when he closed his practice. Best decision we ever made was was to stick with Jeremy Johnson in handling our Trust matters. Over the years he has kept us informed with up-to-date information on changes in state and federal laws as it pertains to our revocable trust. The high level of professionalism, we've come to expect; but what makes Jeremy stand taller than the rest is the compassion with which he treats his clients. It has been as important to our family as his legal expertise.

Best attorney for Trust development
My wife and I had Jeremy write a Trust for us. Going in we had very little knowledge of the process. Jeremy sent us some preparatory materials before our first meeting so we could started. At our first meeting Jeremy was very patient and thorough. He was willing to spend as much time with us as required to ensure that our Trust reflected our needs. In addition to being a highly qualified professional, Jeremy has high priniciples and is an all around good guy.

Outstanding professional, stellar service!
I hired Mr Johnson on the recommendation of my financial adviser, to set up a revocable living trust. He and his team were professional, courteous, highly competent, and quite thorough. Jeremy discussed my financial situation and the trust itself with me in great detail, explained every aspect of the trust, answered all my questions thoroughly, and left me completely confident that this trust is the right vehicle for me. Once I had made my decision, he had all the necessary paperwork completed very expeditiously. I have recommended him to several friends and will continue to do so.

Consummate professional!
My wife and I met Jeremy earlier this year at a retirement seminar sponsored by Dominion Eagle Advisor Group's David Brennan. We were so impressed we selected Jeremy to be our lawyer and to prepare our estate plan. He took the time to carefully understand our wishes, offered great advice, and crafted a comprehensive and complete plan for our family.

Exceptional Trust lawyer
I initially went to Mr. Johnson because I noticed some obvious errors in my Living Trust documents that were drawn up by an Elder Law Attorney that would have caused some undue stress for my heirs! My experience with Mr. Johnson was a comforting one knowing that he had the expertise to re-do my Trust the correct way, which he did. I have been a client of his now for many years and sleep well at nights having him in my corner. He is a true professional and his knowledge is next to none. I highly recommend him to anyone looking to have a Living Trust done.
