why have a gun trust?

There are many reasons to have a gun trust, but the most common are for the convenience they add to obtaining and owning NFA firearms like suppressors, silencers, short barreled rifles (SBRs), short barreled shotguns, or others, and for the problems they eliminate when transferring firearms, whether NFA or non-NFA, after the owner's death or incapacitation.  This page is currently under construction, but check back soon to find out why you should have a gun trust or, better yet, just give us a call and talk to Brandi about your particular situation.

what if i want to make changes to my gun trust?


At Ward Law Firm, we want to build relationships with our clients.  We can't do that by "nickel and diming" them.  While many law firms draft their gun trusts to require the owner to pay the firm an additional fee for each and every change made to the trust, we draft ours so that you can change your co-trustees and beneficiaries on your own as often as you want without having to pay us to do it.  Need to make more significant changes?  Give us a call and we can let you know how to do it on your own or, if the changes really require an attorney, we will be happy to meet with you and assist you through the process.
