Premiere Elder Law Firms Partner to Offer Extraordinary Service to Florida and New York Residents
White Plains, NY (Law Firm Newswire) October 31, 2012 - According to a study from the University of Florida, New Yorkers comprise the single largest population of Florida’s temporary residents.
Affectionately known as “Snowbirds,” many of these New Yorkers ultimately decide to make Florida their permanent home. This creates unique elder law issues since the overwhelming majority of these residents are retirees. These issues can affect everything from estate planning - Is my Will or Trust still good in Florida?- to long-term care planning, tax issues and homestead issues.
Now, two of the nation’s leading elder law and special needs planning firms, one in Florida and one in New York, have developed a relationship to coordinate services and knowledge for people who have connections to both states. Solkoff Legal, P.A., of Delray Beach, Florida and Littman Krooks, LLP of Manhattan, White Plains, and Fishkill, New York are dedicated to helping seniors and individuals with special needs, along with their caregivers and their families.
Bernard A. Krooks, a founding partner of Littman Krooks, LLP and past President of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys (NAELA) and the Special Needs Alliance and Scott M. Solkoff, founding partner of Solkoff Legal, P.A. and an author of a leading book on Elder Law, both fellows of the American College of Trust and Estate Counsel (ACTEC), recognized clients’ desires to develop relationships with reputable firms that can address their needs, or the needs of their loved ones in Florida and New York. This alliance was formed in an effort to address those needs.
