Client Reviews

The information in this section contains information about the past results of attorneys Ellen S. Morris and Howard S. Krooks.

Living in NYC with nobody to take care of my sick uncle 1,400 miles away, I found the expertise and compassion of Howard Krooks and his wonderful firm to be incredible. I would highly recommend them to anyone and already have.

I needed knowledgeable, responsive lawyers and attentive staff to help my aging and overwhelmed aunt and uncle with their family planning and Medicaid problems. With them in Florida, and me living and working in the Mid-Atlantic, I knew it would be a challenge. Elder Law Associates PA met my needs, and the attorney's fees were worth every penny.

Very well satisfied. The service was great in communicating all documents and proceedings with us to fully understand everything. The staff was AWESOME! In the future, (if) I know anyone, I will refer you.

Having gone through an extremely difficult Medicaid application process for my father in Florida years ago and with the recent passing of my mother, I desperately needed to find a competent and understanding law firm that could expedite and help me with elder care legal issues for my uncle in Boca.

When my mom had a stroke -- and unfortunately due to her diabetes -- needed to be moved full time to a nursing home, I needed to qualify her for Medicaid, as the cost of proper care is prohibitive. Ellen and her team did an outstanding job, helping to reallocate my mom's assets and quickly qualifying her for Medicaid benefits. It would be almost impossible for the typical person to get through this process in such a short period of time. I truly thank Elder Law Associates PA for making this happen.

Howard Krooks and his associates were wonderful--competent, flexible, professional, sensitive and kind--qualities all too rare in a legal team. I know. I am a law professor who specializes in lawyer responsibility and ethics. I have testified as an expert in legal malpractice cases. I am thus quite careful about, and critical of, the lawyers I hire. Without hesitation, I can say Howard Krooks was excellent. I am pleased to provide this well-deserved testimonial.

I want to thank you for all the work you have done for me. You were very highly recommended to us and I was very pleased with your work, attention and promptness.

We used this law firm in 2017-2018 to handle the rather complex settlement of my mother's trust which dated back to 1995 in Florida. We needed to do this all from Texas where we live and where my mother had lived for the last 10 years of her life. We were able to manage everything, including contact of and communication with long, lost beneficiaries, from our home through phone conversations and email. It was all done carefully to protect everyone concerned and within a reasonable time frame.

It has been an absolute pleasure working with Ellen Morris and her staff at Elder Law Associates PA over the last few years. This was our first experience with specialists dealing with Elder Law. The firm was recommended to me, and everything the firm has advised us on has been extremely accurate and thorough. Having a firm like Elder Law Associates PA really is very beneficial when it comes to an arena that the general public really knows very little about.

I just want to say thank you for recommending EPIC for my mother-in-law's affairs. They were professional and VERY EFFICIENT. I can’t say enough for Jami (Elder Law Associates Paralegal) and Amanda in how they handled everything and for processing everything so quickly. EPIC and your law firm are outstanding companies to deal with and I recommend both of you highly. Thanks for a job well done.

Howie and Jami, I can’t even begin to thank you for EVERYTHING you did throughout the process of trying to get Medicaid for my sister-in-law Susan. Never in my wildest dreams did I expect any of the problems we encountered along the way. When Susan was about to move from NY to FL I went with her to see her social worker regarding the “transfer” of her Medicaid benefits (LOL). The social worker told me that all I had to do was call the Florida Medicaid office, tell them that Susan had moved and give them her NY Medicaid information. Boy was she wrong! Paul wound up doing a google search for a Medicaid attorney near Deerfield Beach – being in NJ we had NOTHING to go on but faith. I thank my lucky stars that Elder Law was the only firm he called. Jami, you knew how to handle every twist and turn that we confronted trying to navigate the system. Thank you, thank you, thank you! You know a bit about Susan. You’ve met her and spoken to her. She is someone who has always fallen through the cracks of the system and has had to fight tooth and nail her entire life for what comes easily to you and I. This will make a huge difference in her life. I’ve frequently thought about the boxing gloves you told me that you keep in your office for inspiration – Knock Out!

I have been in the Real Estate Business for a little over 50 years and have dealt with literally thousands of attorneys over that time. Ellen Morris has handled my personal account - every time I always comment how great she is. My wife had dementia and there was the eventual problem of running out of insurance coverage and the tax ramifications when she died. I had business fears from an Industrial Park that I owned and all the liabilities from a few business entities that I also owned, Ellen was recommended at least 8 or 9 years ago. This recommendation was the best recommendation that I have ever received. She not only knows all the laws, but also keeps up with all the new requirements that are here in a changing environment. One of the outstanding things about her firm (Elder Law Associates PA) and especially her (Ellen Morris), is the understanding of all the fears one has, and her solving of them. Every time I have had a question, she was there, with an answer and solution before the day was over. She was over fair with her billing - I always felt it was Christmas and she was giving me a present. I was running a company doing over $100 million in sales and I am over 80 years old, so I am in a position to admire super professionalism and great patience tempered with a great degree of empathy. When asked what attorney to use, there is nobody to hold a candle to Ellen Morris, Esq.
