There is not enough good I can say about how well Michael Cohen handled my divorce case. He was timely, available, and efficient. The paperwork he produced was impeccable, he was the second lawyer I hired to handle my divorce and changing lawyers was the best decision I could have made. He never made promises that he could not keep and was always honest as to what was worth me fighting for and what to expect on a "good day" and a "bad day" in court. Luckily, he was so amazing in court I seemed to always attain my "good day" scenario. My ex-husband and his lawyer hated facing Michael in court and I am certain that helped us arrive at a settlement in a timely manner (my entire divorce from when I hired Michael until we signed an agreement was less than five months). As long as your follow his directions, you will be pleased.
I have recommended Michael to friends and colleagues who needed an excellent divorce/child custody attorney. Michael is kind, responsive, extremely knowledgeable, and provides excellent legal advice. Additionally, he cares about his clients and the outcome of their cases. I have worked with other attorneys in the past and Michael stands at the top of the list. He also (fortunately for me) has shown himself to be superior to all the lawyers hired by my ex-wife. If you are in need of a divorce/child custody attorney, I highly recommend contacting Michael.
Over the years, I won some and lost some in my divorce case, but Michael was always honest, responsive and knowledgeable. He didn't just tell me what I wanted to hear. However, he is also excellent and very effective in the courtroom. Michael always told me when he thought we did not have a good shot, so I never had my hopes up during those issues. I was well informed. The court system is not great, but Michael is awesome. He knows his way around the system and he will tell you when he thinks you would be wasting your money to pursue some issues.
