Hi, I'm Mo Johnson and
I'm the publisher of this website. I also either create (videos), write
or edit most of the content you will find on it. I am a retired U.S.
Army JAG officer. In my 20+ year military legal career, I specialized
in tax and estate planning and hold a law degree (JD) from the
University of Tennessee as well as an advanced tax law (LL.M.) degree
from Boston University.
I no longer practice law, which actually allows me to speak my mind a bit more since I don't have to worry about providing "legal advice" or forming an attorney-client relationship with visitors to this site.
I simply do the best I can to share the knowledge and experiences I have as well as things I continue to learn even as I further develop this website.
One of the things that has spurred me on was the death of my grandmother in July 2013. I was appointed executor of her estate and trustee of her living trust and I endeavor to share my experiences serving in those roles. This has provided me with a unique opportunity to hopefully provide truly helpful and very practical information about how to probate an estate or settle a trust.
In the end, my goal is simply to help average people people make smart estate planning decisions by sharing what I've learned as a lawyer, investor, executor and trustee.

|I just want to thank you for this site. It answered my questions. I think many people that do research on the net take it for granted and when they find what they are looking for they forget "someone put time, money, etc into providing me with this information."|
