Sure wished i would have read these reviews before I chose Mrs Kaplan. She charged me 7300.00 for a divorce that I got nothing from. Yes i am now divorced, but she charged for everything, from emails to making copies, to even brief 15 minute phone calls. She never informed me that my divorce process was going to jump from 4000.00 to 7300.00 until i got her bill in the mail. I would never recommed Lise Kaplan to ANYONE. You would think that if your bill was going to jump up 3300.00 that she, being a professional would atleast notify you in advance. There is nothing I can do about it now, but atleast give anyone who is thinking about hiring Mrs Kaplan for her services some advice and that advice is DONT DO IT...CHOOSE SOMEONE ELSE..SHE WILL GET YOU DIVORCED BUT SHE WILL DO ANYTHING SHE CAN TO MAKE IT LOOK LIKE SHE CARES AND IS WORKING FOR YOU, WHEN IN REALITY SHE DOES NOTHING BUT TAKE ALL YOUR MONEY AND THEN SOME.
I used, Lise around 4 yrs ago. I just ran across this review and found it humorous that I went through the same exact thing. She did return my calls, but that did not really matter because she did not seem very knowlegeable about the divorce process. She suggested that I go to mediation, of which took 7 hours, and still ended up with nothing. And to top it off I came out paying her around 5k. She charged for everything including the process of reading and responding to emails. Thanks but I wouldn't recommend her to represent me in any case.
This attorney did a very poor job with my case creating numerous problems. She failed to do standard discovery in a divorce case. She was very intimidated by the opposing attorney which left her completely ineffective in mediaiton. In addition, she claims to have a tremendous amount of difficulty in getting other attorney's to return her phone calls. My case went extremely slow due to her constant response that she had not received a call back.
