  • Steven Andrew Krieger

    Mr. Kaplan's successful case history Avvo rating speaks for itself, but I would certainly endorse Mr. Kaplan. Not only does Mr. Kaplan care about his clients, but he spends significant time helping non-clients find counsel for matters he does not handle.

    I have known Mr. Kaplan for more than six years, and have worked with him on many cases, ranging from securities fraud to human rights cases. I have always found him to be professional, insightful and responsible, and highly recommend his services.
