Elder law is a diverse, complex practice area that requires our attorneys, paralegals and staff to possess legal knowledge and expertise across a wide variety of legal fields. For example, our staff is familiar with government benefit eligibility rules and programs, such as Medicaid, Medicare, Social Security benefits, and Veterans’ benefits, guardianship laws and procedures, probate rules and regulations, court rules and procedures, real estate, tax issues, homestead laws, and ethical rules pertaining to the practice of law generally and specifically regarding conflicts of interest and diminished capacity.
Check out the categories below for a more detailed explanation of our practice areas and areas of expertise.
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.
