Excellent experience with Mr. Cohen
I hired Mr. Cohen to represent my teenage son in an unfortunate incident which could have scarred him for life. Mr. Cohen not only fought to make sure that my son had a fair shot, but he did it with such care and compassion. Aside from his extensive knowledge of the criminal law system, he made sure my son, and family as a whole, always had piece of mind. It felt like he was fighting for his own kid. As a result, my son was exonerated! Mr. Cohen gave my son another chance at life and I will forever be grateful to him for that.
