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.

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 Ohio residents with advice on proper planning concerning their hard-earned assets.

193 Questions Answered
Q. I received a check from my deceased husband's pension, to the estate of his name. I'm his beneficiary .
A: I recommend contacting the pension company to see how things were set up. If you are indeed the beneficiary, then the bond company will usually re-issue the check in your name. On the other hand, if you are not the beneficiary on the account, then the check is an estate asset and you need probate to cash the check. Depending on some other factors, you may qualify for a simplified process to just get the funds payable from the check. I recommend sitting down with a probate/estate planning attorney who can assist you. Many offer free consultations. Best of luck.
Q. Does a notary signature count as a witness signature on a handwritten will in Ohio?
A: In short, it depends on how the notary is signing. If they are just notarizing a signature, no it does not work. If they are signing as a witness, then it may. I would have to refer you to Section 2107.03 of the Ohio Revised Code (link below). It's going to depend on the specifics on whether or not the legal requirement is satisfied. https://codes.ohio.gov/ohio-revised-code/section-2107.03
Q. I am the cosigner my son died the dealership took the car back and reimbursed me. Am I still responsible for the car?
A: Probably not. It sounds like the vehicle was repossessed by the dealership. Until a vehicle is paid in full, the title does not pass to the purchaser. When a vehicle is repossessed they go back and resell the vehicle. What happens with the either refund (if the sale exceeds the balance on the loan), or the debt (if the sale is for less than what was owed) depends on the terms of the sale. Often times, those issues are resolved in probate. For a definitive answer you would need to sit down with a qualified attorney to review the situation in detail. Best of luck.
