client reviews

This firm is 100% reliable and trustworthy.

No question about it, this firm is 100 percent reliable and trustworthy. I felt very comfortable about continuing my case with this firm based on the first impression they gave me: professional.

Jose L.

Extremely competent and really cared about our family.

The law firm provided us complete guidance and direction in our legal matter, but at the same time, they didn’t make our decisions for us. It sure was nice to have confidence in knowing we were going to be taken care of.

Andrea and Larry W.

This firm has a great reputation, even amongst other lawyers.

I was referred to by a lawyer friend and had Richard Cohn as my attorney. He was personable and compassionate, and took his time explaining everything to me. His assistant was also very personable and easy to contact.
