Bastrop, Texas

“Thanks! I ordered 4 suppressors from Capitol Armory last Saturday. I talked with my wife last night and the next day that she is off, we are going to call and book a time to come in and see your wife about a will and estate planning matter. Again, thanks for everything.” (03/04/2020)

R.D. (Director, Information Technology, Large Corporation)

Dennison, Texas

“I cannot thank you enough, this experience far exceeded my expectations in terms of ease and speed. I have already recommended you to several people, and I will be sure to do the same for everyone I know who has dragged their feet because of the perceived complexity of the process.” (amendment and restatement of a 2011 gun trust prepared by a Dallas attorney) (02/13/2020)


Georgetown, Texas

“This whole experience has been great! Don’t get me wrong, but I had no idea that it would go this fast and this smooth. I have yet to get a voicemail, busy signal, delay, or any other misstep that would cause problems, confusion, or additional time and money. I can’t buy my lunch at McDonalds and it go this well. If possible, I would like to someday stop by and meet Jim in person and shake his hand and thank him for his services. I don’t know if I will ever get that chance, but please understand that I would like to do that. I think he is doing the right thing for the right reasons. Thanks again and you all have a great day.” (04/26/2019)

D.C. (Executive Director, Charitable Foundation)

Marble Falls, Texas

“I went with a gun trust for several reasons, but mostly so my wife could legally open the safe with the NFA stuff in it when I wasn’t home. If you’re interested in a trust I highly recommend James N. Willi in Austin. He’s the only lawyer I’ve ever dealt with that did exactly what he said he would do, when he said he would do it, and for the price he quoted.”

H.A. (Hays County Sheriff’s Office)

Caldwell County, Texas

“Thank you very much. You made this process very simple, easy, and quick. I will certainly refer people to you.”

C.H. (Pilot)

Houston, Texas

“Thank you for preparing the trust and answering my questions. I am very glad I decided to go the route of talking to a ‘real’ lawyer experienced in the formation of these trusts and not buy an online, generic packet!”

T.G. (U.S. Customs & Border Protection)

Del Rio, Texas

“Outstanding! What a breeze!!! I can’t thank you enough for all of your help! Your knowledge of everything that I was unsure about really gave me a wonderful piece of mind during this process. I can honestly say you are squared away, and it shows through your work ethic! Thank you for being a phone call away for even the simplest questions! I will most definitely spread the good word of your services!”

R.D. (Police Officer)

Universal City, Texas

“Thanks for all your help. You made the process easy and simple. You answered all my questions and provided any help I needed. Just received my approved Form 1 for my SBR. Have recommended you to all my friends who are apprehensive about doing a gun trust. Eased their worries and let them know that you can handle their situations, questions, and make the process easy and affordable. Thanks again!”

G.S. (Attorney)

Denton County, Texas

“I would highly recommend Jim Willi. Although I am an attorney, I would not trust myself to draft a bullet-proof (no pun intended) NFA Trust because it is such a specialized, technical document. After thorough research, I came to the conclusion that Jim was the best man for the job and produced the best product. I have not been disappointed; so far I have not had any hiccups with the ATF on account of my trust documents. Jim’s customer service is excellent as well: (i) my trust was provided in under an hour (distance does not matter since I live in the Dallas area and Jim is in Austin); (ii) Jim provided me with easy-to-follow instructions on how to file Form 1 and Form 4 documentation; (iii) Jim has repeatedly answered my questions (whether by phone or email) in a timely fashion; and (iv) Jim has offered to review my paperwork before I submit my Form 1 to the ATF. Jim is an excellent attorney and also a gun guy who figured out how to draft a NFA trust for his own use before offering his expertise to the public. My experience could not have been better. If you want a trust that will work (and some excellent customer service), in my opinion, Jim is the man.”

R.P. (Deputy Sheriff)

San Marcos, Texas

“Thank you for making this a very simple process. I was initially worried that the paperwork would take forever!”


San Antonio, Texas

“I just wanted to thank you for the wonderful NFA trust and service, sir. I’ve had five suppressors and two SBR’s approved so far. My only regret is that I didn’t do it 10+ years ago!! I give everyone that asks who did my NFA trust your name and telephone number. Thank you again, sir.”


T.M. (U.S. Army Special Forces)

Williamson County, Texas

“Jim, Thank you for the quick turnaround. Your firm truly is a one-stop shop.”


Denton County, Texas

“All the reviews you have received are spot on. What a wonderful and painless experience this has been. I most definitely will recommend your services to anyone I know looking for a gun trust.”


Helotes, Texas

“Jim Willi definitely exceeded all my expectations going into this process.  I sent him an e-mail and within an hour my phone rang.  Jim had all my documents sent to me and ready to print in just a few hours.  No kidding, it was quick and efficient.  I had my silencer ordered and lower engraved that week.  I even sent my step-father his way to prepare his trust as well.  Jim was also very helpful with clearing up any questions filling out ATF Form 1.  I wish I would have called him sooner.”


Gonzales, Texas

“Jim Willi is the best!  I called Jim for information on an SBR and a silencer.  He set up a gun trust for me within a couple of hours of getting my information.  I was able to purchase my suppressor and submit my ATF Form 1 for my SBR all in the same day.  I was having trouble filling out my Form 1 on the ATF’s eform website, so I called Jim at 5:00 p.m. (on a Friday).  He answered and was glad to walk me through the process over the phone.  The thing I really like about Jim Willi is that, when you call his firm, you get to talk to him.  At some other places I called prior to settling with Jim, I had to speak with a receptionist.  I would recommend Jim to anyone wanting to set up an NFA trust because not only do you get a professionally written gun trust, but you also get the personal attention from Jim and that meant more to me than anything.  Thanks again, Jim.”


Houston, Texas

“Jim made the process of getting my trust fast and painless.  After speaking with Jim for an hour, I had my trust documents an hour later.  He took the time to answer all of my questions thoroughly both before and after drafting my documents.  I highly recommend Jim to anyone looking to set up their trust.”


Fort Worth, Texas

“Jim – I just wanted to take the time to thank you for setting up my NFA Trust.  You truly made the process as easy as it possibly could be and the help you gave me once I was actually purchasing my silencer was invaluable.  Thanks again!!  By the way I ordered that AAC 762 SDN from Silencer Shop today.”


Sugar Land, Texas

“After considering a few different attorneys and their styles of setting up NFA trusts, I decided to call Jim Willi.  He spent about 20 minutes answering all of my questions to my satisfaction and had the completed documents to me within the hour.  Follow-up service has been excellent!   A week after the trust was created, I decided to reorganize the trust and sent him an email with my requests.  A response was received within four minutes and the revised documents were received within 14 minutes!  Customer service has been excellent, and I will be recommending him to fellow shooters and friends.”


Bell County, Texas

“I want to thank you for your assistance, patience and promptness in setting up my NFA Gun Trust and submitting suppressor application packets to the BATF.  It was a big plus that questions, trust and transaction were done via phone and internet. You are someone that believes in our Second Amendment rights and the right to lawfully possess firearms and suppressors to responsible U.S. citizens.  I must also add that your fee is very reasonable.  I have and will continue to recommend you to anyone interested in a NFA Gun Trust.”

Barry A.

Plano, Texas

“I visited Rifle Gear and picked up four new suppressors. The guy taking care of the paperwork remarked “Oh good, it’s one of Willi’s trusts. I know they’re good and never have problems with them.'” (04/26/2021)

Chris K.

Denton, Texas

“I can not tell you how much I appreciate your thoroughness and the step-by-step instructions you’ve provided in this email.

I’m glad I found you through Western Sport and I’ll be sure to recommend you any chance I get.” (04/08/2021)

John T. (Class 3 Dealer)

Lewisville & Farmers Branch, Texas

“I just wanted to reach out to say THANKS to you and your team!! I have heard nothing but great things from my customers at Eagle Gun Range, since we started referring them to you for their NFA trust needs. They appreciate your ability to get their trusts completed so quickly and with us doing notary, fingerprints/photos it really gets the process going much quicker. I also really appreciate you taking care of the employees that have contacted you for trusts. The more of them that get into the NFA game, the more they are able to help our customers with their purchases.” (03/30/2021)

Michael S.

New Boston, Texas

“I have now read your trust a couple of times, and am impressed with it. It is elegant, and the various pieces fit together nicely. Plus, it is only about half the size of many of my other trust documents, and I appreciate brevity and common English. This trust makes my son’s Silencer Shop trust look like amateur hour.” (12/09/2020)

Sky S. (Class 3 Dealer)

Levelland, Texas

“Morning! Can you send me a stack of cards to hand out to customers at SS Outfitters, so you can do their NFA trust? Everyone seems to be really impressed so far with how easy you make it.” (03/05/2020)

T.L. (Real Estate Broker)

Houston, Texas

“Thank you for turning that around so quickly. I just read everything and got it signed and notarized. Again, I appreciate your help getting set up and making it easy.

D.R. (Estate Planning Attorney)

Quitman, Texas

WOW! Impressive, well-integrated set of documents! Thanks for the help. My confidence level is much higher than if I’d taken the $25 quick and dirty alternative.” (10/15/2018)


Lubbock, Texas

“I would like to thank you for putting these files together and taking the time to explain the process to me. I have some friends that also have NFA trusts and they are nowhere near the quality of the one that you have provided me. I have already recommended you to both family and friends and look forward to doing business with you in the future. My wife and I are needing to draft up a last will and testament and I have every intention of working with you when we are ready. If you have any issues or concerns with the attached documents, please let me know. Thank you again and God bless.” (06/29/2018)

Silencer Shop Employee

Austin, Texas

“It was great talking to you too, Jim. The guys that handle gun trusts here love seeing the excellent customer service you provide and recommend people your way as well. I look forward to talking to you more.” (06/28/2018)


Houston, Texas

“Thank you very much. You make life easy. Well worth the money.”  (06/16/2017)


Crowley, Texas

“I cannot say enough about Jim Willi and the services that he offers. After having purchased an online generic trust elsewhere and becoming concerned with the quality and accuracy of that product, I came across Jim and his services. The difference between the two cannot be described in words. I now have confidence in my trust and have peace of mind that my assets and family will be secure. I was so impressed with Jim and his expertise, I will be using the Willi Law Firm for all of my legal needs going forward! Thanks Jim, you have a fan and client for life!!!”  (02/20/2017)


Denton County, Texas

“I had considered the generic NFA Trust package from Silencerco. It was less expensive and provided standardized forms. I choose Mr. Willi because he provided one-on-one consultation and a well prepared NFA Trust package that included better inclusions than the standard forms others offered. He offered very thorough explanations, was quick to respond to questions and actually answered his phone. Very knowledgeable because he practices what he “preaches”. You get what you pay for and I highly recommend his services.”  (02/28/2017)


Houston, Texas

“Thanks so much for your thorough explanations and help in this matter. Again, your website contents are second to none. It was a pleasure working with you.”  (01/06/2017)

J.H. (Vice President, Large Bank Trust & Estate Department)

Dallas, Texas

“Hello Jim and Tracy. I am an attorney admitted in the State of Indiana, and I have been employed as a Bank Trust Officer for over 30 years. Based on my education, my Indiana Bar Membership and my 30+ years of Trust experience… I am qualified to prepare my own Estate Planning and Trust documents. However, I have never done so, because I truly believe in the old adage… An attorney who represents himself has a fool for a client.” Based on my perusal, I am very impressed with the quality of your NFA Trust Document Package… your professional attention to detail… and also with your prompt reply to my personal needs. Best Regards, J.H.”


Williamson County, Texas

“Thanks for making the overall trust process smooth and painless. It was worth every penny. I know my buddies feel the same way, and you’ll probably be getting contacted by another of our little group in the future as well. I will give you a call when I am ready to do my Form 1 for SBR and walk through the submission as we had discussed.”

T.C. (Dentist)

Sherman, Texas

“I just want to take a moment and say thank you. You have made this the simplest and most straightforward process I have ever experienced. Thank you for personally calling and taking time to explain everything. I am truly grateful for your help in making this a wonderful experience. Rest assured that I will be telling my friends and family where to go to have the best service possible. I am always pleased to work with men who seem to be truly professional and excellent at what they do and you, sir, are definitely in that category. Again, thank you.”

B.W. (Class 3 Dealer)

Austin, Texas

“All of my customers have said that you have taken good care of them. Much appreciated!”


Houston, Texas

“The gun trust documents look great. I am so glad we went to you instead of accepting the terrible generic trust document our local gun shop sold us. Your version is very well thought out and will work for us much better. Thanks again!”

J.S. (Retired Chairman of the Board, Publicly-Traded Financial Services Corporation)

Dallas, Texas

“As we discussed by phone a few moments ago, I want to reiterate how much I appreciate your help in setting up our NFA Trust. Having dealt with many attorneys in my 40-plus-year professional life, I can say with certainty that you provided the greatest value for your fee of any attorney in my experience. I especially appreciate your thoroughness in reviewing the documents after execution and ensuring that all is in order. Again, many thanks. Feel free to use any part or all of my comments publicly if they would be useful to you or to encourage others to consider your NFA Trust creation services.”

L.S. (U.S. Customs & Border Protection)

Kingsville, Texas

R.G. (Section Manager, Large Semiconductor Corporation)

Pflugerville, Texas

“I wish that I would have known about you sooner. I am completely impressed with your ability to get this done and your availability for any/all of my questions/concerns. I will be sure to share my positive experiences with everyone that I come in contact with that can use your services. Also, we will more than likely be in touch with you again for estate planning.”

H.C. (Physician)

Richardson, Texas

“Thank you again for being so thorough. There are many people out there offering services to help form NFA trusts out there, but no one is as thorough as you are. I will recommend you to any of my friends and family who may be interested in forming a NFA trust.”

M.C. (Police Officer)
