I was first represented by Brad in 2009 while selling my extremely closely held school bus company of almost 20 years. Brad had an amazing ability to navigate a complicated and tumultuous deal without the usual unnecessary legal obstacles. Most importantly, his level
of attention and communication skills far surpassed any attorney I've experienced during past deals. Finally an attorney that responds immediately and makes you feel like you're his only client. Brad has since handled all of my business matters and along with a gaining
a great and fair attorney, I've gained a friend who truly cares about my interests.
Brad Kaplan Esq has been my attorney for several years . His can do attitude , decisiveness in decision making and no nonsense approach to getting a deal done are just a few of the reasons I like working with Brad . He is a good listener and helps has a knack for helping his clients formulate their thoughts. Add to this his prompt reply to most correspondence and you can see why Brad is a winning attorney.

My husband and I have been using Brad for over 15 years. I first met him in 2007 when I needed help selling my business. Brad worked hard to negotiate a great deal and is very easy to work with. Brad is very responsive and gets things done quickly even when dealing with opposing, slow-moving lawyers. He’s very knowledgeable in all areas of law and has a great connection to other specialized professionals. Brad’s fees are reasonable and he doesn’t draw matters out to rack up the bill like other lawyers I’ve dealt with. I highly recommend Brad Kaplan and would never think of using anyone else.
He’s a walking encyclopedia of estate planning knowledge, coupled with a real understanding our family needs. I have such peace of mind knowing that all of our estate planning and medical directives have been taken care of.
He’s intelligent, thoughtful, well-versed in his chosen fields, but most importantly, responsive to the needs of his clients. He’s also smart enough to know when the needs of his clients require attention outside the realm of his expertise, in which case, he brings in others who can assist the client.

Lawyers are said to be ‘of counsel’ but while many know the law, few prove themselves able to be client partners. Brad is one of those rare attorneys who deliver on this promise — providing sage advice, practical insight and real-world answers. Brad is a true partner to his clients and I am grateful for the strategies and follow through that have, time and again, helped my business realize its potential. In short, he has the integrity you trust and delivers the results you demand.

Our firm has worked with Brad Kaplan for more than 15 years on a variety of matters for our clients and for us personally. He follows a practical approach to the practice of law, but also develops creative solutions to resolve difficult problems when they arise. We also find that the fees that his firm charges are also very reasonable, especially when compared to what would be charged by attorneys with comparable experience at larger firms.

Brad Kaplan assisted us with the sale of our closely-held business to a publicly-traded company. The deal was a complicated transaction and having to deal with a national law firm and public company created greater anxiety than we anticipated. Brad was extraordinarily helpful in answering our questions, working with us to overcome some obstacles to the transaction and keeping the deal on track to a successful completion. He was very respectful of our questions and he immediately responded to our phone calls or e-mails. Brad Kaplan became, over the course of this complicated transaction, a trusted advisor and good friend, who would get through our deep concerns and offer sensible solutions to the complex legal and technical problems which arose during the course of the negotiation. We are very grateful that Brad was referred to us for this transaction and highly recommend Brad and his law firm.

As a first-time home buyer, Brad went above and beyond what I expected from an attorney. He was always reachable and made me feel comfortable to ask all of my questions.

I would highly recommend Brad and will engage him for any of my future legal needs.

-Brad is an excellent attorney in many fields. He is very responsive, personable and gets very difficult jobs done quickly. I would recommend him to everyone!
-Mr. Kaplan is the most professional, knowledgeable and courteous lawyer I have ever known. He is very prompt at returning calls and e-mails. As a client, I felt very confident in his vast knowledge to represent my interests and he often suggested other options in situations I would not have considered. Mr. Kaplan is a take charge lawyer who runs rings around other lawyers and has no patience for the stereotypical lawyer who takes their time getting back to you. I highly recommend Mr. Kaplan.
-Brad was very responsive to our needs and very reasonable with his fees.
-Thorough, articulate, brilliant, thoughtful, well-versed... enjoyable and funny - great twist when dealing with "significant" family issues.
-Mr. Kaplan is, fortunately for my situation, rather even-keeled. He was asked to represent the interests of a contentious family trust following protracted and acrimonious negotiations leading to a Settlement Agreement that, among other things, laid out a framework for feuding Trustees to work within. (As part of the Settlement Agreement, counsel to the various parties involved in the SA were barred from continuing to represent these parties.) Mr. Kaplan quite ably stepped in as new counsel.
-Brad is extremely responsive and personable. He is a staunch defender of his clients and is also very knowledgeable. I highly recommend him.
-Brad is a terrific attorney. He is easy to talk to and extremely knowledgeable. He also has an excellent network of lawyers with different disciplines that he can tap into in order to address almost any legal issue you may encounter.
-I value Brad's input on all legal issues. Brad always provides me with the facts and consequences of possible and actions and practices which allows me to make a better-informed business decision. I have known Brad now for over 9 years and intend to continue my business relationship in the future.
-My experiences with Brad Kaplan and his firm over the past 10 years, have been exceptionally good. They are very responsive and thorough, and I would highly recommend them.
-Brad has been our attorney for the past 10 years and assists us with all of our legal issues and when he is unable to assist us, he is always upfront in letting us know and referring us to a competent and service oriented professional. We would highly recommend Brad to anyone seeking an honest and bright attorney.
-Brad is a very knowledgeable, responsive, compassionate and professional in every sense of the word. I trust him!
