Client Reviews
★★★★★
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. D.L., New York, NY
★★★★★
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. K.R., Laurel, MD
★★★★★
