  • Gregory G. Glenn

    A lawyer who is truly dedicated to his profession and "elder law". Mr. Cohen is the elder law attorneys tax lawyer. I have not only had the privilege of working with Mr. Cohen, I have attended several continuing legal education seminars for elder law attorneys where he has been a guest lecturer on estate planning techniques, trust drafting, tax ramifications of asset protection planning for the elderly, and Medicaid planning. Mr. Cohen's analytic skills, ability and knowledge of complex asset protection trust drafting for seniors and the disabled is extraordinary.
