Our team is made up of outstanding and highly experienced litigators, trial lawyers, and staff, including three former federal prosecutors, three former public defenders, and lawyers who have clerked for judges at all levels in state and federal court. Just two years after its founding, Kaplan Hecker has been recognized as one of the 10 “Top Boutique Firms” in the country by Benchmark Litigation, the definitive guide to America’s leading litigation firms and attorneys. Benchmark Litigation also gave the firm its highest rating as a “Highly Recommended Law Firm – New York,” making Kaplan Hecker one of the very few litigation boutiques – and the only firm founded by women – to achieve that top designation. Our lawyers have tried and won dozens of cases in state and federal courts across the country.
One anonymous peer noted that Kaplan Hecker’s lawyers “are unwaveringly committed to staring down injustice without blinking, and their work proves that. They are ambitious, feisty and fearless, especially tailor-made for these tumultuous times.” Another noted that “they are all pretty young, and are already superstars, so really, if they keep that model and all wind up staying together, the sky is the limit.”
Kaplan Hecker lawyers have consistently been recognized as among the leading litigators in the country. Our lawyers win numerous awards from legal media and professional organizations, play significant leadership roles in public service, and are widely published on their individual areas of expertise.
