The Student Loan Consultant You Need

We are Kaplan Law Firm; spearheaded by attorney Rae Kaplan, our mission is to make your student loan worries wither away. 

How will we do it? By taking the same approach we have since opening our doors 50 years ago, a personal one that is client-specific, rather than stuck to a preset formula. The journey towards financial freedom & forgiveness for each family or individual we connect with is different. Whether you need student loan help specifically or bankruptcy help specifically, or some combination of both, Kaplan Law Firm stands ready to get you the best results possible no matter what.

“I literally can't say enough wonderful things about Kaplan Firm. They supported me through the complicated and stressful process of getting student loan forgiveness.”

For federal loans, borrowers have options such as deferment, forbearance, or enrolling in an income-driven repayment plan to lower monthly payments based on income. Rae Kaplan has helped hundreds of borrowers reduce or eliminate their monthly payments, freeing up their budgets and their lives.

How do I know if I have federal or private student loans?

If your information appears on a national database run by the U.S. Department of Education, that means you borrowed federally. If not, you likely took out loans from a private entity.
