Kenneth J. Rampino retired in 2016 after over forty years of practicing law.  Before retiring, his practice concentrated on helping individuals and families deal with legal issues concerning marriage, incapacity, creditor protection, long term care, taxes, retirement and death.  Mr. Rampino believes in a holistic approach to estate planning.  Although he was a respected Elder Law Attorney, his practice encompassed a broad spectrum of clients and in serving those clients, he believed it was essential to discern the needs of each client and to design and implement a plan that addresses those needs as comprehensively and efficiently as possible.

Mr. Rampino received his Bachelor of Arts from the University of Rhode Island in 1967 and his Juris Doctor from Suffolk University Law School in 1970. He was an Editor of American Law Reports from 1971 until 1975 during which he published numerous annotations on a wide variety of topics. In 1975, he began practicing in the real estate and estate planning areas and with the advent of Elder Law, wealth preservation in the long term care context became a focal point of his practice, particularly with regard to real estate. He was a member of the Rhode Island and Massachusetts Bar Associations, the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys, ElderCounsel and the Title Standards Committee of the Rhode Island Bar.

Mr. Rampino was a frequently requested presenter and lecturer on topics relating to Elder Law and estate planning.
