Alone in lake county
I have no family in the area, moved to this area with my husband. Then suddenly going through a divorce. I was in a very difficult situation, among other emotions. Mr. Kaplan was a God send. He communicated well with me, helped me understand everything that was going on. His quality of service and his staff were absolutely wonderful. Very responsive, and the value of service for the money was exceptional. At one of the most difficult times in my life and my children he was a wonderful and very professional attorney. I more than recommend him. I was a basket case and he guided me through.
