Littman Krooks Selected Among U.S. News Best Law Firm In New York for 2011-2012
New York, NY (Law Firm Newswire) November 2, 2011 - Littman Krooks LLP has been selected among the 2011-2012 U.S.News – Best Lawyers® “Best Law Firms” in the New York metropolitan area. The firm, with offices in New York, White Plains and Fishkill, received Tier 1 ranking in the area of Elder Law. This high ranking is a special distinction that signals a unique combination of excellence and breadth of expertise.
The U.S.News - Best Lawyers® "Best Law Firms" rankings are based on a rigorous evaluation process that includes the collection of client and lawyer evaluations, peer review from leading attorneys in their relevant practice areas, and a review of additional information provided by law firms as part of the formal submission process. An unprecedented amount of data was collected in the project's second year and this combined data resulted in the 2011-2012 "Best Law Firms" rankings.
To be eligible for a ranking, a law firm must also have at least one lawyer who is included in Best Lawyers® as part of the annual peer review assessment. Bernard A. Krooks, a founding partner of Littman Krooks LLP, was selected by his peers for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America® 2012 in the field of Elder Law earlier this year. He is the Chair of the firm’s Elder Law and Special Needs Department.
“The firm is honored to be part of this prestigious group. We appreciate being recognized by all those participating in this evaluation process," says Mr. Krooks.
