Only a select group of lawyers are chosen for this distinction; Krooks has been included among this elite group for each of the last six years.

His selection results from an exhaustive peer-review survey comprising nearly four million confidential evaluations by fellow attorneys. The survey is conducted by Best Lawyers, which has been considered a definitive guide to legal excellence in the U.S. for a quarter century. The annual Best Lawyers publication has been described by the national magazine, The American Lawyer, as “the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice.”

Krooks is a founding partner of Littman Krooks LLP with offices in New York City, White Plains and Fishkill and is the Chair of its Elder Law and Special Needs Department.

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.
