Despite all of the emotional baggage, negativity and stress that comes with a divorce Michael is highly-effective at focusing on the getting though the divorce with least amount of collateral damage.
I believe that we (Michael and I) came out of my divorce successfully. It's not winning, it's about coming out of it fairly. In my case, we have two young children involved. Michael and I developed a strategy and we stuck by it throughout the emotional roller coaster known as a divorce proceeding. Although the proceeding took a bit longer to execute than it should have (thanks to the flip-flopping of the other side), we finally got it done. Finances and kids fairly handled. Little to no collateral damage from the divorce proceedings.
One comment that Michael made early on that impacted me is that a divorce is a business separation. Said another way, I/you need to look at divorce as a separation of a business-- nothing personal; it's only business. Anytime I found myself getting a little emotionally charged-up, I would remind myself, "this is just business."
Beyond that, Michael is very knowledgeable and adept at providing the pros and cons for every question, option or scenario to help guide me (or you) through this journey. Most importantly, he knows the law. He was patient, kind, and really enabled me (or you) to make the best decisions with all of the information in front of you. Michael was not interested in starting World War 3 between you and your spouse if unwarranted, but he surely did not suffer fools lightly. If the opposing lawyer made poor comments, motions, etc. he was quick and aggressive to nip that in the butt. Anytime we hit some turbulence with the opposing lawyer, it was extinguished.
I would strongly recommend Michael to another and I have already done so. I would certainly use him again, but I hope that I won't need to.

I used Michael for my divorce. He was my second attorney and what a difference he made from the first attorney. Whenever I called Michael he always either answered his phone or got back to me right away. He fought very hard for me and got my case settled as quick as he could. He also didn't bill me for every minute he could. I called him many times to ask him questions and he answered my questions and spent time on the phone with me and didn't chsrge me a penny. He made a difficult time much easier for me.

Michael represented me on several child support actions with Nassau County Family Court.
• Honest accurate portrayal of what the court experience would be
• Very effective in providing me options to consider, carefully explaining the pros and cons of alternative courses of action
• Provided recommendations that proved to be effective. Did not encourage steps that would be unsuccessful or waste time and money.
• Very empathetic. He took personal interest in me and my case. Years later, he still checks in to see how things are going
• Made a painful process easier
• I trust him and would hire him again
I would be happy to discuss in more detail

Michael is a very trustworthy attorney, when I brought my case to him, he told me how it will be before even I picked him, didn't give me a false hope like some other lawyers did, But in the end by the grace of god and Michael's hard work, I won the case.

Extremely knowledgeable and trustworthily. As a Male facing a divorce and/or custody battle, the cards are stacked against us before entering court, "it is what it is", but Mr. Cohen somehow eases the pain without increasing the stress levels. In other words, he doesn't add lighter fluid to red hot briquettes... Most of all, Mr. Cohen is not a Thief as many of them are!
Thanks again for your help

Mr Cohen was great to me ... Very conscious of my budget ... kept in communication with me ... and kicked my ex-wife's attorney's ass. He took me on as a client even though I wasn't going to be a big moneymaker for him ... and treated me like I was his most important case.

Although getting a divorce is an extremely emotional and difficult process to go through, Michael truly helped make the experience as painful as possible. Not only was he responsive to my needs and, extremly patient with my many questions/concerns, Michael was also very sensitive to the impact a divorce would have on my child, along with my overall financial health. On every occaison he took the time to guide me to settlement strategies that always put my child's best interest first and, simlutaneously have the least negative impact on us, overall. Michael is truly a consumate professional, one of those "rare bread of lawyers" that seem more concerned about their clients than themsleves and, someone I would galdy recommend to family and friends.

Michael is not your trumpet type attorney you "think" you need in your divorce ...
He offers calm, straight forward good advice & legal representation ...
Good with court issues & appearances, with flare for family court expertise! Knows the laws very well ... does not inflame the situation to cost you more money in the long run!
Rates are more than fair in his field ... he is very honest ... reliable ... you will "NOT" be disappointed to hire this man!
P.S. Divorce is not about winning or losing ... more about damage control ... you need to understand that simple fact! That's why I can highly recommend Mike Cohen!

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.
