Biography

Attorney Andrew Popp focuses his law practice on Elder Law and Estate Planning. He is results-oriented, relying on his exceptional legal knowledge and successful litigation techniques to achieve results.

Andrew obtained his bachelor’s degree from the University of South Florida. He then attended Stetson Law School, where he acquired his Juris Doctor with a concentration in advocacy.

While at Stetson, he received numerous awards, including the Doyle Conflict Resolution Inc. Top Grade Award and the Leadership Development certificate.

Upon graduation, Andrew served as an Assistant State Attorney. He handled criminal cases from initial investigation through trial and appeals and prosecuted hundreds of misdemeanor and felony cases. He gained extensive first and second chair trial experience in both bench and jury trials.

After leaving the prosecutor’s office, Andrew decided to dedicate his career to assisting clients with Elder Law Issues. Motivated by his passion for defending his clients’ interests, he acquired an in-depth knowledge of wills, trusts, probate, estates, and Medicaid planning.

Legal Answers
Q. My father passed away in early November 2023. I've filed with the probate court to be named administrator. What else?
A: Here in Ohio the answer depends on a number of factors. Being appointed the administrator of the estate is a good first step. If the sibling has established residency you may need to commence eviction proceedings to get them to leave.

All in all, I recommend sitting down with a qualified attorney to review the situation and advise you.

Best of luck.
Q. What type of lawyer is estate and tax ? A beneficiary of a grantor trust for page 41 1041 instructions explain W9
A: I'm not sure a question is posed here. A Tax/Estate Attorney specializes his or her practice on those areas of law. The Internal Revenue Code is obtuse at best, as can be the rules governing many Trusts. It sounds like you need to sit down with such an attorney to review the Trust and the tax stance of the Trust as well as distributions from the same.

Best of luck.
Q. my neighbor passed away in late October, I am concerned his children may be trying to settle his estate without probate
A: The short answer is that you simply have some misunderstandings about the way the process works. If the title to your neighbor's house was in his name, only a legal representative can sell the house. That means probate. The alternative is if the house was in a trust or was set to pass through operation of title to another person without probate. In that instance, the Will would not apply as the other mechanisms would supersede the Will.

If you would like a more detailed analysis of the situation, I would recommend sitting down with a qualified attorney for review.

Best of luck.
