Romy Kaplan My name is Romy B. Kaplan and I’m proud to defend citizens accused. I am a 3rd generation, native Houstonian with deep roots that keep me connected to this thriving city. After graduating high school, I studied Communications at the University of Arizona and studied law at Thomas M. Cooley Law School in Lansing, Michigan. After internships at the Harris County Public Defender’s Office and the Harris County District Attorney’s Office, I opened my criminal defense practice.
