Best Lawyer I ever met! Mr. Solkoff represented me and my parents. He was able to protect their savings which were being spent at an astounding rate first for home health aides and then for my Dad's nursing home care. We paid one fee and he represented us for over three years. Never charged another penny and even suggested other documents and did not charge extra. I think we got to know the whole office because they all work together. Mr. Solkoff was recommended by my attorney in New York and then two other lawyers in Florida. I have learned in life that if you need surgery, find out who the other surgeons would go to for their family. Same with lawyers. I am a businessman. I work with lawyers a lot. This was by far the best experience I have had. Worth every penny. He literally wrote the book. This guy is the real deal and humble too. He was so patient with my mother.
Excellent. It was a great comfort knowing that my mom was protected, and she would be able to age gracefully, either in place or at a nursing home. Solkoff legal has been there from the beginning, and everything has worked out perfectly and as expected. The peace of mind is really worth it!
Top elder law attorney. Both personally and professionally, I have utilized Solkoff Law for over 10 years. Personally, he has helped my dad before he passed at 101. His expertise and knowledge helped dad pass in a beautiful assisted living facility because of his work in family asset protection. He has prepare custom documents for me and my wife who is disabled. Professionally, he has helped dozens of my clients in long term care planning and for caring for a child of special needs. I have shared the podium with Scott and have been in meetings with his clients and mine. He is one of the most skilled attorneys that I have ever worked with in 30 years of wealth management practice. His staff is first rate and always responsive to my calls or those of clients. I have gone on end of life hospital visits with him to complete planning to help the family when their loved one is about to pass. Solkoff Legal is first class, knowledgeable, caring and accessible They are the team you want on your side with your planning and problems.
A great firm. I have used Solkoff Legal to set up all my legal documents in order to prepare for our needs in later life. I found Scott and all his associates to be knowledgeable and fully aware of my requirements. When a situation arose that caused us to use some of the documents (Power of Attorney, Health Care Surrogate) he suggested I knew that I was completely covered. I know my future is secure because I used this firm.
