  • Melissa J Winthers

    Michael Kaplan is an exceptional lawyer in the area of worker's compensation. Michael's stellar reputation among opposing counsel and judges is an important factor which separates him from other lawyers in the field and allows him to achieve great results for his clients. If someone in my own family was hurt on the job, I would not hesitate to send him/her to Michael.
