Attorneys & Professionals

Andrew Kaplan, a partner in the Vorys Cincinnati office and a member of the labor and employment group, was profiled in the SoapBox Cincinnati "For Good" section. The profile story, which was titled “Downtown Lawyer Recruits 22 New Tutors for Be The Change,” highlighted Kaplan’s time tutoring Cincinnati public school students and his successful tutor recruitment efforts.

The story states:

“‘I always liked working with kids,’ Kaplan says. ‘And my wife is an English teacher, and I have a son who did Teach for America, who is now teaching in the elementary school grades, so I knew I had some great resources for helping kids learn to read.’

 After making a phone call, Kaplan found himself at Hays Porter Elementary School in the West End. Within a close proximity to his firm, Kaplan was able to begin tutoring during his lunch break once a week.

 Now in his third year of tutoring, Kaplan has since recruited 22 other lawyers—more than 25 percent of Vorys’ lawyers in Cincinnati—to join in the effort.”
