We Give Families Peace of Mind
If you or a family member is in need of an elder law or special needs planning attorney, you’ve come to the right place. Elder law and special needs planning are highly specialized areas of law and should be handled only by qualified elder law and special needs planning attorneys. Elder Law Associates PA’s Partners, Ellen S. Morris, Esq. and Howard S. Krooks, Esq., CELA, CAP, are highly experienced in handling a diverse range of complex issues affecting seniors and people with special needs and their families. Our partners’ combined 60+ years of legal experience enable them to provide transactional and specialized services, such as fiduciary and guardianship litigation, estate planning and asset preservation planning, and to interpret and simplify complex legal issues for our clients and their concerned family members.
Elder Law Associates is distinct and we’re special.
Ellen and I have over 60 years of experience in dealing with elder law, special needs planning and litigation issues.
There is very little we haven’t seen before. And with experience comes the ability to analyze problems, problem-solve and to do it in the most efficient way possible.
No matter what the family’s issues are, we are going to solve those problems, so that they now have peace of mind going forward on any of those issues.
The attorneys of Elder Law Associates are all leaders in the field by being active members of the Elder Law Section of the Florida Bar.
We have a wonderful team … at every level and every position … and they are incredibly smart.
We provide bilingual services at 4 convenient offices in South Florida.
I’m licensed in New York and Florida. With my New York experience, we are able to handle New York law, so it’s really helpful to our clients to be able to go to one firm that offers legal advice in both Florida and New York.
When our clients come to Elder Law Associates, as far as we’re concerned, they are now family.
We try to talk to (clients) as they would be our family, because the only way we can properly represent them is by them trusting us.
We give families peace of mind by advocating for those who are incapacitated or who have special needs and cannot take care of themselves.
We are passionate, and we are compassionate to our clients and about their issues.
We strive to not only meet but exceed clients’ expectations each and every day.
We’ll take good care of you and give you and your family peace of mind.
Our mission is to give families peace of mind by providing exceptional, professional, tenacious, effective and efficient legal counsel, earning our clients’ trust and exceeding their expectations.
Having gone through an extremely difficult Medicaid application process for my father in Florida years ago and with the recent passing of my mother I desperately needed to find a competent and understanding law firm that could expedite and help me with elder care legal issues for my uncle in Boca.
Living in NYC with nobody to take care of my sick uncle 1,400 miles away, I found the expertise and compassion of Howard Krooks and his wonderful firm to be incredible. I would highly recommend them to anyone and already have.
When my mom had a stroke -- and unfortunately due to her diabetes -- needed to be moved full time to a nursing home, I needed to qualify her for Medicaid, as the cost of proper care is prohibitive. Ellen and her team did an outstanding job, helping to reallocate my mom's assets and quickly qualifying her for Medicaid benefits. It would be almost impossible for the typical person to get through this process in such a short period of time.
I truly thank Elder Law Associates PA for making this happen.
Very well satisfied. The service was great in communicating all documents and proceedings with us to fully understand everything. The staff was AWESOME! In the future, (if) I know anyone, I will refer you.
I want to tell you how impressed I am with your video. I love that it is not one of the run-of-the-mill sales-pitch videos. It is warm and friendly and from the heart, and makes the viewer (me) feel very welcome to be friends with both of you, although I never met Howie. The two of you seem to have a partnership made in Heaven ... Hope you get at least 25 more years together. My best wishes to you both, and thank you for the work you did for us.
I have been in the Real Estate Business for a little over 50 years and have dealt with literally thousands of attorneys over that time. Ellen Morris has handled my personal account - every time I always comment how great she is. My wife had dementia and there was the eventual problem of running out of insurance coverage and the tax ramifications when she died. I had business fears from an Industrial Park that I owned and all the liabilities from a few business entities that I also owned, Ellen was recommended at least 8 or 9 years ago. This recommendation was the best recommendation that I have ever received. She not only knows all the laws, but also keeps up with all the new requirements that are here in a changing environment. One of the outstanding things about her firm and especially her, is the understanding of all the fears one has, and her solving of them. Every time I have had a question, she was there, with an answer and solution before the day was over. She was over fair with her billing - I always felt it was Christmas and she was giving me a present. I was running a company doing over $100 million in sales and I am over 80 years old, so I am in a position to admire super professionalism and great patience tempered with a great degree of empathy. When asked what attorney to use, there is nobody to hold a candle to Ellen Morris, Esq.
