So, your clients think they need gun trusts, but you do not know what it is or how to draft one. What if I told you that in two hours you will know what it is and how you might go about drafting one? This presentation includes an overview of gun trusts, including the law, an in-depth look at their drafting and a discussion on some of the frequently asked questions pertaining to attorneys’ who draft gun trusts (How should you market your gun trusts? How do you incorporate a discussion on gun trusts with your clients?).
