Rampino Law, Ltd. does estate, tax and retirement planning for clients of all ages and circumstances. This includes the drafting of wills, trusts, financial and health care powers of attorney, as well as long-term care and disability planning where appropriate. The firm offers a complimentary consultation during which the particular family circumstances, resources, income and goals of the client are carefully evaluated. On the basis of this information, the firm designs a plan appropriate to the circumstances. For example, to a couple with young children, the needs and education of the children will be of primary importance. A middle-aged couple may be focused on avoiding or minimizing estate taxes, saving for retirement, subsidizing their children’s college education and caring for the couple’s aging parents. Seniors may be concerned with probate avoidance and wealth preservation, particularly if there is an admission to a nursing home. Domestic partners will want to take advantage of newly enacted laws recognizing marriages or civil unions and may have as one of their goals protecting the integrity of their plan from members of their extended family.

The hallmark of a good traditional estate plan is maintaining control. A client may say, “I want to control my assets while I am alive and well. I want someone of my choosing to take care of me and my family if I become disabled and when I pass away, I want to give what I want to whom I want, when I want with as little legal expense as possible.” We, at Rampino Law Associates, understand this and endeavor to make it happen in every case, where appropriate.*
* It is important to understand that many of the strategies utilized in long term care and Medicaid planning require relinquishment of control.
