NEW YORK, NY, June 30, 2020 – As Pride Month comes to a close, Kaplan Hecker & Fink LLP is pleased to announce Founding Partner Roberta (“Robbie”) Kaplan’s inclusion in City & State New York’s 2020 Pride Power 100 list. The Pride Power 100 list honors the 100 most influential people from the LGBTQ community in government, business, health care, journalism, nonprofits, and more. Kaplan’s profile is also featured in the special commemorative magazine published on June 29th.

Noting Kaplan’s contributions to the LGBTQ community, City & State said, “Representing Edith Windsor in her successful lawsuit to overturn the Defense of Marriage Act, Roberta Kaplan is credited with laying the groundwork for the U.S. Supreme Court to guarantee same-sex marriage. Kaplan is behind a lawsuit against organizers of the white supremacist ‘Unite the Right’ rally in Charlottesville and represents author E. Jean Carroll, who is suing President Donald Trump for defamation after she accused him of sexual assault.”
