  • Victor R. Wandres

    Scott Cohen is one of the most knowledgable federal warranty and lemon law lawyers in the nation. His work has helped many consumers nationwide with products that don't live up to the promises made by the manufacturers of those products. I appreciate his work as it has helped craft this ever-changing legal landscape for the better.
