Elder Law & Medicaid Planning
Elder law encompasses a wide range of practice areas, including estate planning, long-term care planning, Medicaid planning, asset protection, guardianship, and more. At Rampulla & Newstad LLP, we use all of these strategies to help elders and their families manage the challenges that come with growing older.
Probate & Trust Administration
When individuals die, whatever worldly possessions they have pass to their heirs. That sounds seamless and effortless, but that’s rarely the reality. If a person leaves a will, the surrogate court must validate that will so that an executor can begin to execute the terms. If a person dies intestate, the surrogate court will approve an estate administrator selected by the known heirs to settle the estate and transfer the assets according to the state’s laws of inheritance. Each process requires great attention to detail.
