The Founding Partner’s Story

Once Upon a Time,
There Was a Lawyer

“I started off small. Before I could afford to rent an office, I would meet with clients in their homes. I used to joke that I was one of the last lawyers that still made house calls.

As my practice expanded, I still always strived to make my clients' convenience a top priority. I opened offices in locations close to where my clients lived and worked. And people appreciated this.

As a result of this "client-focused" approach, before long I was helping people in Broward and Palm Beach Counties, and up into the Treasure Coast counties of Martin, St. Lucie and Indian River. We've even have helped people from Okeechobee and Highlands Counties.

By sticking to what I know and do well, the Cohen Law Firm has grown into one of the premier bankruptcy firms in South Florida. In fact, since 2000, I have filed more bankruptcy cases than any attorney in any of the above 7 counties.

I am grateful to have been able to help that many people get a fresh start. I look forward to helping more people find their path forward out of overwhelming debt.”
