John Vermillion and Associates LLC et al.

The class action lawsuit claims the defendants misrepresented themselves as qualified financial advisers, estate planners, lawyers, and paralegals to exploit and prey upon senior citizens with the selling of unnecessary living trusts. The defendants are accused of fraud, unauthorized practice of law, negligence, breach of fiduciary duty and conspiracy. The suit alleges that the defendants created and sold the living trusts as part of a scheme to gain access to senior citizens' financial information in order to sell annuities and other financial products.

According to the legal dictionary on, a living trust is created by a declaration of trust executed by the trustor during his/her lifetime, as distinguished from a "testamentary trust," which is created by a will and only comes into force upon the death of the person who wrote the will.
