Mr. Rosenkranz was recommended to my family during some very complex issues concerning my elderly parent. For that I will always be grateful!
For quite some time, our family had been struggling with a situation involving my elderly parent and his companion. We tried to manage these issues on our own, and it only resulted in anger, frustration, and certainly a failure to know exactly how best to deal with everything. This involved estate planning, future health care, managing issues with a non-marital partner and her family, eligibility for assistance with medical care, among many other issues surrounding elder law and elder care. We were also dealing with two unrelated families (ours and Dad's companion's), in two different states. Without Mr. Rosenkranz' expert knowledge and actions, we would have ended up in a terribly disastrous and contentious situation. His attention to detail has continued to serve us well over the past few years. All that he did prepared us for the events and situations that develop from year to year.
Mr. Rosenkranz is not only extremely competent and knowledgeable, he is also compassionate, caring, and an excellent listener. He expertly listened to all of our input and concerns, and then methodically evaluated the situation. I would never have thought of some of the actions that he recommended, and now, years later, they were the absolute best things for us.
My family and I have found peace and comfort since engaging Mr. Rosenkranz. We have had him on retainer for a number of years, and he has always been ready to answer our questions. We can highly, highly recommend to anyone who is dealing with elder care or elder legal issues - please talk to Jack Rosenkranz! Don't struggle trying to manage all of this alone. Let the trained, educated, experienced expert get you through it. If you are anywhere in Florida, make the effort to seek out Mr. Rosenkranz. He also has a wonderful staff who are responsive and helpful.

My husband and I would like to thank Mr. Jack Rosenkranz of Tampa, FL for the superb work he did in getting the State of Florida to pay the Medicaid owed my mother for six months of nursing home care in 2010.
The state had denied my mother's application for 2010 on the grounds that we had not established and funded a QIT (Qualified Income Trust) by the deadline of December 31, 2010. My mother passed away in early January 2011. The QIT was set up but we had just missed the deadline for funding it. We had short notice and were doing business from out of state. The attorney who wrote the QIT for us referred us to Mr. Rosenkranz, whom she knew to have done successful work with fair hearings for Medicaid denials involving QITs and (specifically) VA payments of Aid and Assistance. According to the State of Florida, my mother's VA Aid and Assistance put her income above the poverty line, which required that she have a QIT.
Mr. Rosenkranz pointed out to us what he had discovered in his research for other clients: that my mother was not required to have a QIT because Veteran's Aid and Assistance was not to be counted as qualified income. The State of Florida was in error. He showed us a successful judgment he had recently won for another client based on
resolving the same error.
We gave Mr. Rosenkranz our case. We received judgement in our favor this month. In our opinion, Mr. Rosenkranz is brilliant, unflagging in his research, and extremely adept in leveraging his knowledge. He is also very good at explaining arcane legal situations to clients.

Jack Rosenkranz is one of the most selfless and inspiring people I have ever met. He truly cares about justice and is committed to the rights of his clients. Now, more than ever, Florida's elderly are in need of advocates like Jack Rosenkranz. The elderly and disabled are especially vulnerable considering the complex nature of medicare/medicaid benefits, resident rights, and other concerns unique to each client. It is important to have advocates like Jack on their side to ensure they are treated with dignity and respect. I cannot say enough about Jack Rosenkranz and the world would be a better place if all lawyers were like him.
