He is past president of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys (NAELA) and the Special Needs Alliance, past Chair of the NAELA Tax Section, and past chair of the Elder Law Section of the New York State Bar Association. Krooks has also been selected as a “New York Super Lawyer” since 2006. He is a sought-after expert on estate planning, special needs planning and elder law matters, and has been quoted in leading publications such as The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times and Forbes, among others.
“It is an honor to be recognized by my peers. I look forward to our continued work with America’s seniors and individuals with special needs,” says Krooks.
