I have been a client of Marc Kaplan for a decade now. From the start Marc Kaplan, and his paralegal Jodie has handle everything their was todo with my divorces, and my child custody issues. As I’m not thrilled I have been through 2 divorces. I have been lucky to be represented by true professionals in their business. Not only are they extremely nice to the client, they are known in the courts as being very respectful lawyers. Their respect for their clients, the courts, and opposing counsel has given them a reputation of being honest, responsible and above all extremely knowledgable in their field. Marc with the help of Jodie has always made sure me as a client felt that my cases were top priority. Which is a huge stress relief when it comes to divorce that can be very emotionally draining on a persons lives especially with children involved. Jodie has always been right on top of making herself available to speak to me if Marc is out of the office. She has been a huge help to making me comfortable with her own extensive knowledge in this field. I would recommend Marc Kaplan firm before any other firm in the state. Its comforting walking into a court room when 9-10 times if not always mr. Kaplan already has a dealt with the judges in the past, is respected by them, and understands how that particular judge views situations. Do not go with anyone other then Marc Kaplan.

I have worked with Marc Kaplan for the past eight years. In all cases, I found them to ALWAYS be well prepared. They provided me with accurate information, then presented viable, practical options for my consideration. Most important to me was their honesty. They told me what my situation was, what was likely to happen and what they would be trying to accomplish. They were spot on in my case.

Marc represented me during my divorce, one of most difficult times in my life. In a time of unknowns, he was most capable and I felt like I truly had a partner in my corner. His method is to work with the other side to get things resolved, but will fight if it requires. I’ve referred friends to Marc and will continue to do so. He’s a pro!

I was very pleased by the professional care and attention I received at Marc Kaplan. During one of the most difficult times of my life I was able to trust the entire staff to do everything they could to help me have the best possible outcome. I highly recommend this practice.

James is a smart, strategic lawyer who knows what a reasonable outcome in divorce looks like. He helped me negotiate end of spousal support upon my retirement at age 62. He was a strong advocate on my behalf with the judge, opposing counsel and arbitrator, but also a voice of reason when counseling me. Ultimately we were able to negotiate a final cash settlement that was reasonable during a non-binding arbitration, terminating support and resolving all issues in a divorce that had been extremely lengthy and difficult eight years prior. James also did a good job negotiating with opposing counsel a confidentiality agree related to an employment separation agreement with my former employer, that was satisfactory to my somewhat rigid former employer and me.
All-in-all a very good job by James.
James worked on my case, partnered with Laura. He is very professional and right to business. Opposing council for my case was very abrasive even toward James who was merely representing me. He brushed it right off and stayed focused on my case. He gave me the straight scoop whether I was going to like it or not. James is part of the Shapiro Law Firm and he is one of the latest additions to the team of outstanding people there. I highly recommend James; he is a solid asset in anyone’s corner.
Being a client in a divorce case is never a fun experience. However, James made the experience as painless as possible. He was always willing to discuss my case with me, even when it was the second or third time we discussed something. The other important thing to note was that I was happy with the how the case ended. I would recommend James to anyone.

I met Marc Kaplan in 2012 when I was facing a difficult divorce in my life. His legal counsel, but more importantly his emotional support, got me through the emotional turmoil. His excellent knowledge of divorce law and trial experience made it possible for me to go forward financially stable.
He is creative, always looking for solutions that may not be obvious. He exhibits integrity in all his dealings, looking for the right outcome not what will generate the most legal fees. Because of my personal experience, I have recommended Marc to other personal friends and clients and have received similar feedback validating my experience. As a CPA, I hold professionals that I do recommend to a very high standard-whether legal, financial planning, investment managers-and Marc Kaplan has always met or exceeded those standards.
I am pleased to be able to write a recommendation for Marc Kaplan, who was my attorney through a contentious divorce that lasted from 2012 through 2016. I asked Marc to take my case after another attorney had represented me badly for the first six months. When Marc came on board, a series of court orders had already passed by, uncontested, leaving me with no parenting rights and no plan going forward. Marc took my case and quickly leveled the playing field.
He believed in me, and took a personal interest in my case and in my rights as a parent. He met with me as necessary to plan for motions or court dates; used good judgment in deciding which actions were priorities and which were not; and generally was conservative with his time.
An initial decision from district court was unsatisfactory to the point that Marc questioned whether it followed the statute. We solicited opinions from two retired judges before filing with the Court of Appeals. I watched Marc argue our case before the Appellate Court, and was impressed with his preparedness and his ability to focus and present an argument under pressure. We won.
Marc rescued me from a bad situation with a lawyer who neither believed in me nor cared to make an effort on my behalf. He gave me competent and, when necessary, aggressive representation in and out of court. He won an argument at the appellate level that returned more money to me than he charged for the entire time he represented me.
I would recommend him without reservation.
