Business Succession
Rammelkamp Bradney works frequently with business owners and farmers in planning the transition of their operations to other family members or sale to non-family members.

Your Estate Planning Needs Can Change
As your family and financial situations change, your estate planning documents should change too. A marriage, divorce, birth of a child, impending retirement or other significant event should cause you to revisit and possibly revise your estate documents.

Rammelkamp Bradney works closely with clients to keep their estate documents in tune with their current situation and future goals. Whether it involves a simple amendment to a will or major revision in an estate plan, an attorney at the firm can provide you with the advice and services you need.
