Dear Clients, Friends and Colleagues,

As the holidays approach, we would like to thank you for your continued relationship with Littman Krooks.

May your holiday season be filled with much joy,
happiness and success. Warm thoughts and best wishes
for a very Happy New Year.
Here's a question we get asked a lot: "which is better for me to get for my mother - a guardianship or a power of attorney?"

The question itself is misleading, and our answer almost never satisfies. The problem is simple: if your aging parent needs someone to make decisions (medical, financial or otherwise) for him or her, you almost never have a choice about whether to pursue getting a signed document (like a power of attorney) or a court order (like a guardianship). Why not? Click here to read more.
In addition to elder law and estate planning, Littman Krooks offers legal services in  
special needs planning and special education advocacy. The firm maintains a strong reputation in the disability community due to continued client referrals and their ability to empower families through education and knowledge.
