Knowing each other since law school, John Roven and Mike Kaplan have worked
together, since 1985, on behalf of retired railroaders who were the victims of asbestos
disease.
In 1995, after working together at another FELA law firm for 10 years, Mike
and John sensed the need for a more client-centered approach. This was the beginning of
Roven-Kaplan, LLP.

 

For the last 17 years, our firm has expanded and remains dedicated to serving railroad
retirees and their families. This commitment continues today and forms the bedrock of
our practice. With our firm steadily growing and a network of national co-counsel and a
professional support staff, we continue to focus on the needs of the working wounded in
the rail industry.
