Welcome to Kaplan And Kaplan

World War II veteran and Harvard Law School graduate, Jacob Kaplan, opened his first office in Burlington, Vermont in 1948. Every day since, generations of lawyers from the Kaplan family have fought for the rights of individuals against the powerful. We have battled governments, banks, insurance companies and big business to protect the liberty, freedom, property interests and basic rights of individual citizens from oppression. Our business and reputation for excellence have been built on an unwavering commitment to our clients. We continue to honor and build this legacy with each client we serve whether it is defending an individual against a criminal charge, fighting an insurance company to get fair compensation for injuries or demanding equal treatment under the law.

KAPLAN AND KAPLAN, located in downtown Burlington, is among Vermont’s respected litigation firms. Our attorneys are admitted to practice in Vermont, New York, Massachusetts, The District of Columbia, and Virginia. We serve all of Vermont and, in some cases, work throughout the Northeast.

Please feel free to contact us to discuss how we can help you.
