Bernard A. Krooks, New York Elder Law and Special Needs Attorney, hosts a weekly half hour show on Westchester Radio AM WFAS 1230. The show runs from 6:05 to 6:35 pm on Thursday evenings.
The show addresses many aspects of New York Elder Law and New York Estate Planning, including eldercare, special needs planning, guardianship, asset protection, estate, financial, medical, social and other topics of interest facing our elder population and persons with special needs.
Bernard A. Krooks, who goes by the moniker “Bernie the Attorney” on his show, hopes to bring valuable information to members of Westchester and surrounding areas, which will help to explain real issues to individuals concerned with estate planning, special needs planning and elder law. Mr. Krooks understands that many people may be intimidated by the complexity of financial and estate planning, so he tackles difficult issues in order to show how they effect people in everyday situations.
The show features weekly guests and interviews in which various people and organizations discuss how estate planning and elder law issues affect them and their members, or how they and their organization may offer help to individuals and families. Some recent guests include the Office of Vocational and Educational Services for Individuals with Disabilities, the Alzheimer’s Association, the Children’s Home of Poughkeepsie and the Miracle League.
AM 1230 WFAS has been broadcasting for over 75 years, and advertises itself as “Westchester’s legacy radio station.” The station aims to serve as the county’s “town square” bringing both music and useful local information to Central Westchester, parts of the Bronx and Rockland County.
