Mitch Cohen combines professional excellence, legal expertise, and care for his clients in a way that is unparalleled in my experience. Meticulous in his knowledge of the law (and, frankly, of human nature), he always gave me excellent legal advice in the face of very fraught and contentious circumstances. His sense of both the long game and the short game helped me to come away with the best possible outcome at each turn. He also has a calm, cool demeanor that is extremely effective both in negotiations and in court proceedings. When he speaks, it is with the authoritative backing of a deep understanding of the details of the case and the relevant case law, and he has an amazing talent for saying just the right thing at just the right time. It was clear throughout my time working with him that the judge, the AFCs, and even the opposing counsel had tremendous respect for him. On more than one occasion, with a single sentence, he was able to direct the course of an entire court conference. During what has easily been the most traumatic period of my life, Mitch was my constant counsel, advocate, and champion, and I could not have had someone better by my side.
