Kenneth J. Kaplan formerly served as an Assistant United States Attorney in the Eastern District of New York from 1972 to 1977, where he was Deputy Chief of the Criminal Division, and Chief of the Official Corruption Unit. In 1977 he co-founded the criminal law boutique, Kaplan & Katzberg, which has been involved in many of the major white collar investigations and cases during the past thirty eight years.

His record of success in investigations, trials, sentencings and appeals in both state and federal courts is attributable to both his experience and his passionate commitment in defense of his clients.

His stellar reputation in the legal community is evidenced by his inclusion on a yearly basis in Best Lawyers in America, Best Lawyers in New York (New York Magazine), Super Lawyers for white collar defense, as well as the highest peer review rating by Martindale-Hubbell- AV Preeminent.
