Supportive, Compaisonate and Exceptional
I have had the pleasure of working with Lenny on a family law related topic and he was nothing short of exceptional. He was understanding of the situation, compassionate, and level headed while also passionate about what was right and fair for me. He is a straight shooter and will tell you the facts, while delivering them in a way you understand. He works to talk through all of your options and the best solutions. He has a short term and long term outlook on the situation which is valuable as many times stressful situations keep you in the moment and not thinking ahead. Lenny truly had my back and gave the best advice for me. Even when I pushed for other outcomes he was honest in saying what he would and would not do. Since working with Lenny we have consulted a few times on other matters and he has been great. He provided me with a sense of ease and confidence, even in the worst of times. I highly recommend Lenny for any Family Law needs. Also, his office is very friendly and accommodating as well!

Exceptional Experience
Worked with Lenny on a child custody case. He was very helpful in figuring out all the ways to come to an agreement and be fair. Very knowledgeable about family law. Child custody cases can be stressful but with Lenny he made me feel confident and secure about all the proceedings. I had a stress free experience with Lenny as my lawyer. Will definitely recommend if you want a lawyer who cares about your concerns.

Lenny Cohen
Lenny was referred to me from another trusted attorney I know to help with legal counsel for my family. Throughout the entire process he was very thorough, responsive and as importantly empathetic. Lenny guided me through everything and was a true professional. He knew the local legal system and judges, and was fully prepared. If you need a good family attorney, Lenny Cohen is the way to go.

Exceptional Attorney; 5*
Mr Cohen is the exception to the rule when it comes to attorneys! He is HONEST! In addition, he's not a settler, he fought for every aspect of my divorce, even the most minut detail. He was able to settled my case, keep it cost effective as well! When you go through something as devastating as a divorce, you need to have a comfort zone to fall back on . Mr Cohen was more than that to me!! Good man, an excellent attorney, and now a man after the fact I can call a friend...

Honest and High Excellence
Lenny was honest about the case from begin to end. He worked the case effectively and motivated the adversary to settle sooner than expected. He is professional, discipline, self-motivated and knowledgeable. Lenny is someone I would utilize in the future and refer to friends. Thank you very much Lenny.

Mr. Cohen
The best! Mr. Cohen thoroughly and carefully reviewed the legal process with me. I had many questions- he was patient and very clear with his explanations. Extremely knowledgable about child custody laws. Was very comforting during this emotional time, yet frank and honest about process. I would recommend Mr. Cohen 100%. You will not find a better lawyer to help.
