About me

I am a principal in the law firm of Caplan and Hecht, LLC and also a Practitioner in Residence in the Department of Hospitality and Tourism at the University of New Haven.  I have combined my business experiences with my legal experiences to provide quality legal representation for my clients in transactional and litigation matters.  I am able to provide my clients with the legal information necessary to help reach their goals.   As an attorney at Caplan & Hecht, LLC, from the moment I meet a client, I work closely with that client until the issue is resolved or project is completed.      

 The law firm of Caplan and Hecht, LLC has been in existence since 1935 and we provide quality legal services throughout Connecticut in areas such as real estate (commercial and residential); business development, real estate litigation, estate planning, and contracts.
