Matthew Kaplan did a very good job of handling my case. He was very organized and kept me informed at all times. He was also very prompt at answering any questions I had throughout the time I worked with him. I would definitely recommend him.

Mr.Kaplan represented me, after I was a pedestrian struck by a motor vehicle this past year. I didn't have to worry about any issues
involving the incident...including insurance carrier etc.just the healing process! A very professional compassionate Firm.
I would not hesitate to have him represent me again!

I was injured in a medical facility. I looked for local attorneys, no-one would take the case since it was not a "sure thing" since I have had previouse injurys. I found Mr. Kaplan's website, I emailded him the statement of what happened, he contacted me right away.
Mr. Kaplan in my opion is a honest lawyer, one you don't find too often, a knowledgeable and careing person.
Thank you Matthew for helping me when I felt there was no help.
Matthew Rizzo, Car accident Attorney
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
I have known Matt since the late 90's when he did indigent defense work for Squires & Lopez and I did the same type of work. After we both transitioned from indigent defense, I defended cases where he was the Plaintiff attorney when I worked at Allstate. I have always found Matt to be diligent, passionate, hard-working and knowledgeable in his work. He truly believes in his work and his clients. Matt is also a great guy to deal with. He is able to effectively and zealously advocate for his clients along with being a professional and pleasant guy to deal with. He is an asset to the legal profession.
