The Litigation Experts

Elder Law Associates PA also advises and represents our clients in guardianship, fiduciary, probate and trust & estate litigation. We work with clients regarding actions to remove fiduciaries, for accountings and to preserve beneficiaries’ rights. We also handle actions to assert or defend an expected inheritance, and we engage in litigation to protect and preserve homestead rights wrongfully removed. In addition, in guardianship litigation cases, we represent our clients while always keeping the best interests of the alleged incapacitated person or ward in mind.

Through these areas of practice, our firm enables our clients to avoid impoverishment caused by the escalating cost of long-term care, maintain control over their legal, financial, medical and testamentary affairs, and preserve their legal rights.

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.

— Name withheld by request

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.

— M.L., Syosset, NY

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.
