Charles I. Kaplan

Dallas, Texas

I've been practicing law for… let's just say a long time. I've practiced both in Texas, where my home is, and in Florida, where I cut my teeth on the law. The legal industry has changed dramatically over the past decade enticing newly licensed attorneys to abandon their law licenses and ushering the downsizing of major law firms.

Many of today's clients are unwilling or unable to spend lots of money on fighting legal battles as clients did decades ago. Clients now want to avoid protracted litigation and spend few dollars on legal fees. Technology and the Internet have fostered an age of do-it-yourself legal services and shopping cart legal documents. So while many clients are looking for an attorney with the lowest rates, they overlook the value that comes with hiring an attorney with experience and wisdom. Yet, these circumstances don't change the expertise required for attorneys to give sound and wise legal advice. Advising my clients has always involved helping them to make good business decisions within a legal framework, rather than just statutes and lawsuits.

I built Kaplan & Moon on a foundation of helping client's avoid or resolve complex legal issues. I've assembled a team of dedicated and educated support staff and a league of experienced and knowledgeable attorneys who always strive to achieve results that are in the client's best interest. Now that you've found us, give me a call to discuss how Kaplan & Associates can help you with your business or personal legal needs.
