Elder Law Firms Partner to Serve Florida and New York Residents
During winter months, the number of temporary residents in Florida increases due to the influx of people who wish to escape the cold weather. According to University of Florida studies, New Yorkers make up the largest percentage of these so-called “snowbirds” in Florida, many of whom eventually decide to live there permanently during retirement. In effect, Florida and New York experience unique Elder Law issues, including estate planning, tax issues, homestead issues and long-term care planning.
We know that many of our clients have homes, assets or relationships with other states. Because laws sometimes vary from state to state, we have developed a solution for clients with multi state issues. Although we have relationships with elder law attorneys in most states, the firm has established a special link for clients in Florida.
To address the specific needs of Florida and New York residents, two of the nation’s leading Elder Law and Special Needs Planning firms have joined together to coordinate special services to those associated with those states. Solkoff Legal, P. A. of Delray Beach, Florida, and Littman Krooks LLP of Manhattan and White Plains, New York are dedicated to helping elders and people with special needs, as well as their families and caregivers, receive the quality services they deserve.
An alliance between Bernard A. Krooks, Esq., and Scott M. Solkoff, Esq., signals a decisive step toward addressing the unique needs of New York and Florida residents. Krooks is a founding partner of Littman Krooks, LLP and a past President of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys (NAELA) and the Special Needs Alliance. Solkoff is a founding partner of Solkoff Legal, P.A. and an author of a book on Elder Law. Both are fellows of the American College of Trust and Estate Counsel (ACTEC).
