Highly Recommend Mr.Joshua Kaplan
Joshua Kaplan came immediately To the hospital when my relative was in an accident and was very helpful in expediting necessary documents which ultimately gave me the power to save My Godmother's life as she needed emergency life saving surgery and did not have a health care power of attorney prior to this accident . Mr. Kaplan was very professional as well as very caring and extremely helpful in this very stressful situation . I would highly recommend Mr.Joshua Kaplan for his legal expertise and cannot praise him enough for all his help .

The best lawyer in NY.
We used Josh for many things. He did my patent. Wrote it quick and very through. He also did a TM and design patent for our company. I have used other Lawer for different things and have never been more happier. Josh was alway available, called us back within a day. We highly recommend kaplan law practice.

This attorney is a real schemer. He took money from me and ran away like a robber. He didn’t complete my work. Keep calling him and sending emails but no reply at all from last August 2019. See closely the good reviews here are his FNF. Excusing Covid is another real lies. I called the court and the said all the office is open. He still didn’t done my work. Be careful to hire this attorney. You will lose your money like me.

Kaplan is your typical shyster.
He took my $3,000 deposit, then vanished. There were no replies to my countless attempts to get an update with zero progress in my case. Do yourself a favor and go elsewhere; otherwise, you'll be writing a similar post.
