I hired Nathan Cohen to represent me in my divorce in St. Louis county because a good friend knew him personally. On the first free consultation Nathan was very sweet, assured me he would care about my interests and even gave me a special rate since I came via his good friend.
What a mistake I did by hiring him for this simple case of Uncontested divorce where all he had to do was to prepare the legal paperwork correctly!
When the actual work started, he didn't really answer any questions and kept saying "if anything goes not as planned we would start over". He was very hard to reach to get a simple answer about anything and his assistants only say "you should talk to Nathan" to anything your ask them.
During paperwork preparation there were several typos made by his assistants and I was charged for all corrections. There was no promised special rate - he charged an arm and leg for not really answering questions and doing poor paperwork.
The worst thing - he didn't include the request for my last name change with the divorce paperwork even though I asked about it from the beginning. Now I need to spend additional time and money to get it corrected - Mr. Cohen wants another good sum of money to get it fixed and it is not willing to accept his mistakes.
Looking at reviews left by other it seems that I am not the only one who was misled by this guy "charms" during free consultation and after that got the worst divorce attorney in the town.
I hired Nathan Cohen to represent me in my divorce in St. Louis county. This was the worst decision I could have made. His invoices are vague, communication poor and he gives the divorce industry a bad name. All he cares about is getting his money. You would be wise to do more research than I did.
I hired Nathan in 2008 to represent me in a divorce case in Clayton. He promised actions that were never followed-up on and seemed more interested in networking on my dime. I knew I was in trouble when one of the statements reflected that I was charged $400 to look over paperwork when the only court action that was provided was the filing. When it was all said and done I essentially spent $2200 for him to file the initial pleading. I suggest doing careful research for a reputable attorney prior to entering into an agreement as well as making sure that you get everything in writing prior to retaining them.
Terrible case but not unusual according to him. He was right. Spent a lot of time with me and I spent half as much as my wife paid her lawyer.
Everything this attorney has done for me has been successful, efficient and top notch.
