What Our Client's Are Saying

  • Thank you so much for all you have done for me so far… Couldn’t believe I didn’t have to say a word and the whole process took less than 5 minutes. I had built it up to be so much more.. When this first happened I thought my life as I knew it was over and that I would either be in jail today or never be able to enter the US again… Thanks again Jeff Cohen, you are a life saver.

    Confidential Client

  • Mr. Cohen was very respectful and understanding. He is available 24/7 by phone, email, or text whenever I needed him. He made me feel comfortable and calmed my nerves. He explained everything in detail and made sure I was aware of everything going on. Overall, I am extremely happy with the result of my cases. I would recommend him to any friend in need of an experienced attorney.

    Confidential Client

  • My ex fiancé framed (… me) of forgery. The result of my case was I was completely exonerated (of all charges).  I realized Jeff was the right one for me because he kept me calm and hopeful for a little over a year.  He honestly believed I was innocent.  Jeff Cohen, sets new and high standards for his colleagues. My experience with attorneys has been horrendous. Jeff put my fears and my doubts at ease right from the start. He was accessible to me and my family. He was attentive, amiable, helpful and respectful. He exhibits true diligence and proficiency during representation and, most importantly, he is patient. Jeff Cohen has established himself above all the rest.
