Mark represented my son recently and he was very professional and guided us every step of the way. Mark was always positive while at the same time letting us know what could take place at any given time. He was able to help my son get a fair chance and when things got a little rough he never gave up. I would recommend Mark to everyone because during the whole time my son was in court he helped us have some hope. He was always on time and told us what we were facing before my son was in front of the judge. Being that it was a first time for us we were in great hands. Thank you Mark

Amazing Lawyer
Mark Cohen was reccomended to me by a friend after I had got into some legal trouble in New York City. Mr. Cohen is the epitome of professionalism and I would happily reccomend him to anyone that is in need of an attorney. Mr. Cohen was intensely persistent in my case and provided the results I desired incredibly fast.

The lawyer for YOU! The lawyer YOU need!
I had gotten into some legal trouble in NYC and I’m from Boston so I was scrambling to look for good legal help. A close family friend referred me to Mark Cohen, and it was possibly the best thing that could’ve happened to me. Immediately I saw how dedicated and hard working he is. I also realized how well he paid attention to detail to try to find anything and everything that could possibly help me in my case during our consultation. He was very realistic with me and gave me the worst and best possible outcomes (most only tell you the best outcome). After that I was sold and I couldn’t have asked for a better outcome. His professionalism and years of experience got me the results I had wished and hoped for in a timely manner. He also went beyond my expectations getting me the results I wanted and more. If your looking for legal advise or services, look no further! Mark Cohen is your man!

Excellent attorney
I was referred to Mark by a trusted friend. I had total confidence in Mark's ability. Mark was very patient and willing to hear out my numerous questions as this was my first experience hiring a defense lawyer. He was concise and explained every detail. My son's case was dismissed and also got his records cleared and sealed that same day. In the end, Mark was absolutely amazing and I'd gladly recommend him to anyone looking for a Criminal Defense lawyer.

I should have written this review awhile ago but I've just been busy with work thanks to Mark. See, Mark helped me keep my job after getting jammed up in some trouble and he was able to keep my record clean. I was charged with a Class A Felony and I got a disorderly conduct which is awesome. What is great about Mark is that he is easy to reach and is in constant communication with you. Also, he's a straight shooter. He will never sugar coat anything and tell you exactly what's going on. He will work with you and bounce ideas off of you to show you what your options are. I highly recommend Mark I. Cohen!!

Excellent attorney!
We hired Mr. Mark Cohen to represent our son twice over a 10 year period. Each time, Mr. Cohen fought relentlessly to find the best resolution for our son, with understanding, compassion and kindness, keeping us up-to-date each step of the way. We highly recommend Mr. Cohen as he is a brilliant lawyer.

Triple E! Extremely Excellent Experienced Lawyer
Reliable, trustworthy, well experienced, caring, and understandable. These are some of the adjectives that can be used to describe Mr. Cohen. Mr. Cohen gave me the confidence and security since we met him for the first time. I am very grateful because I found the right lawyer for our case with his experience. He always showed his capacities and abilities to defend the case. His vast experience on his field was one of the main reasons why I chose him to represent us on this legal matter. I felt that I can trust him and rely on him. As a result of that, the few months that my family went through the rough legal process of the case, Mr. Cohen always kept me informed about every single detail and step of the whole process. His staff was super caring, supportive, reliable, and available since the moment we stepped in to Mr. Cohen's office. He was always available whenever I had questions regarding the case. Because he was very involved and made sure that I was being helped and not alone through the process, it felt as if he became an additional member of my family; for that, I am very grateful. I recommend Mr. Cohen to be your lawyer because he will fight for your rights and he will not stop until he wins the case. It clearly shows that he knows what he is doing. Thank you Mr. Cohen for your support, friendship, and above all, for winning our case.

Excellent Lawyer
Mr. Cohen represented my sister and he went above and beyond to get her the best deal. He kept me updated and explained everything that was going on and what he was doing to get my sister a better deal. Unfortunately we had to let go the previous lawyer because when they are appointed to your case they don’t even bother to explain the process, fortunately we hired Mr. Cohen and it was money well spent. Thank You so much for helping my sister and me thru this difficult time.
