David R. Kaplan

Of Counsel
Amherst, Massachusetts

"A long time ago a retired Superior Court Judge told me, 'You don't pick your practice specialty, it picks you.' I believe that to be absolutely true, as my role as a domestic relations attorney is completely suited to my personality. It allows me to problem solve, to litigate, and to have personal interaction with my clients. Gradually, over the years, I became aware that not only was this area of the law what I did best, it was the most satisfying one for me personally."
