Our National Presence
We know that many of our clients have homes, assets or relationships with other states. Solkoff Legal, P.A. is a Florida law firm and the laws sometimes vary from state to state. Solkoff Legal, P.A. has developed a solution for clients with multi state issues. While we have relationships with elder law attorneys in most states, the firm has established a special link for clients in the New York city area.
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 and White Plains, New York are dedicated to helping seniors and individuals with special needs along with their caregivers and their families.
Scott M. Solkoff, Esq., 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), and Bernard A. Krooks, Esq., a founding partner of Littman Krooks LLP and past President of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys (NAELA) and the Special Needs Alliance 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.
Littman Krooks LLP offers premier elder law services with the same type of national leadership and professionalism Solkoff Legal, P.A. has worked so hard to establish.
