In January 1989, Mr. Kaplan opened his own legal practice under the name of Joseph V. Kaplan, P.C. By the end of that year, Messrs. Passman and Kaplan agreed to merge their firms under the name of Passman & Kaplan, P.C.

Mr. Kaplan continues to concentrate his practice in the areas of employment, labor, and discrimination law. While primarily representing Federal and D.C.

In 2005, Mr. Kaplan obtained a jury verdict of $3M for a P&K client in a disability rights law suit against the U.S. Department of Commerce.

In addition to practicing law, Mr. Kaplan is a frequent lecturer at professional seminars concerning various labor and employment law topics.

Mr. Kaplan also served on the faculty of Central Michigan University, where he taught a graduate economics course on Collective Bargaining and Labor Law. He was twice elected as the National President of the Society of Federal Labor and Employee Relations Professionals (SFLERP) and is active in various professional organizations, such as the National Employment Lawyers Association (NELA) and the Washington Metropolitan Employment Lawyers Association (MWELA).
