Biography

Ravenna Attorney Andrew Popp focuses on two fields of law: 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.

Andrew is well versed in the various techniques available to protect his client’s assets from being taken away upon entering a nursing home.

He has seen far too many examples where families have waited too long to set their affairs in order, and the damage it can cause. He provides Portage County residents with advice on proper planning concerning their hard-earned assets.

Legal Answers
Q. My father passed away in April 2020. His estate was filed into probate in August 2020. I am one of the beneficiaries.
A: The short answer is that you may not be able to get the proceeds right now. Probate can be a long complex process lasting multiple years if issues arise. Proceeds from the sale of the real estate will be subject to claims against your father's entire estate and is not just limited to encumbrances specific to the property. You will likely need to sit down with a probate attorney who works in the county where the probate is taking place to review the situation in detail. A lot of variables need to be figured out before a clear answer can be given. Best of luck.
Q. My deceased father was the beneficiary of the policy but,as I stated I believe since my sisters was given power of
A: I'm sorry, your question seems to have been chopped up a bit. You may need to sit down with an attorney as there are some critical factors missing. What type of policy was he the beneficiary of? Did he ever receive any benefit from the policy? Power of attorney is not the same as being the executor of someone's estate. There are a lot of terms which need to be clarified in order to provide you with a cogent answer.
Q. Do both parents of a jointly owned house need to be probated? Mom died 2012. Dad names me sole heir in the will in Ohio.
A: Whether or not your father would need to open up a probate estate for your mother depends on if he held title with rights of survivorship. If he has that right, then you would need to complete some basic forms including an affidavit of surviving spouse to get the title in your father's name only. Once that issue has been addressed you may want to look into naming a new TOD beneficiary for the property. That way it will avoid probate when your father passes as well. A qualified estate planning attorney can walk you through all the necessary steps. Best of luck.
