Worth the wait
I am so happy I cannot express my satisfaction and gratitude enough!!! It took time and a lot of work on their side and my side I.e. PT and doctors visits. If you do your part, you will get the best outcome. Albert got on the phone to give me advice afew times during my case and he really helped settle my nerves and be patient. He was a million % right about what he said. Ruben was also amazing with everything that had to be dealt with. Aktem, Ryan, the whole team was exceptional. Thank you so much Cohen and Cohen. I could not be more satisfied, they got it done the best way they could have. I have been recommending them to my friends for years and I will continue!!

Super Professional, AMAZING RESULTS
I am so thankful to Albert for all of his hard work and dedication. He was able to rightfully secure an amazing compensation package after my vehicle accident which resulted in physical injuries. He was very supportive and positive every step of the way. His entire team was incredibly patient and knowledgeable, and kept me informed and updated consistently. I can’t say enough good things about him.

Sale of our home
Our family became familiar with Cohen & Cohen law firm, specifically Albert Cohen, in 2015. Albert was instrumental in helping us create an Irrevocable Trust for all our family's assets. We were extremely satisfied with all the time and effort he devoted to obtaining, creating, and completing the Trust documents. This past September we decided to sell our primary residence. We did not want to go through a real estate company and all the hassle that would entail. We were told that we have to get a lawyer and I said we didn't know of a real estate lawyer. Eventually, I called Albert and told him we would like to sell the house (and because it was in the Trust, decided to ask for his advice). Albert readily said they can sell it for us and his parner, Mitchell would be dealing with us and seeing us through that process. Mitch called us and we consulted with him on the phone. The trustees did all the signing. We didn't have to submit any major documents because they were all available in the Trust. Mitch led us through a seamless process and our home was sold in ten weeks. We were very pleased with the whole transaction. He represented us at the closing. We highly recommend the Cohen & Cohen Law Firm for all your legal transactions. They display professionalism at all times. Why don't you just give them a call? The Fredrick Family

A Personal Injury Attorney of Amazing Talent !
I very highly recommend Mr. Albert Cohen for any and all personal related injury cases. I was hit and injured as a driver/pedestrian by a moving vehicle. I sustained many injuries as a result of this accident. Shortly after the accident I started my search for a personal injury attorney and I’m so fortunate and blessed to have picked the very best, Mr. Cohen and his amazing team collectively. Mr Cohen took very exceptional care of my case by first being extremely quick to respond to my crying out for help email in addition to many other points from the inception to the successful closure of my case. He was an exceptional man of great character that sympathized for my condition and without hesitation took every necessary step to bring this terrible event to a successful closure. He was an active listener and diligent information gatherer. Thanks to Mr. Cohen and his fabulous team I knew immediately that I was in good hands. There where many delays and high hurdles in the case but Mr. Cohen and his team always worked hard in the background to insure that everything was always done right to ensure that my case was always made a priority. I’m fortunate to say that I’m injured but did survive this horrible event and I can’t be any happier then today knowing that I had the right attorney on my team that handled everything that I could never imagine anyone coming close to doing it the way that he and his office did. With all of this said - I’m happy to report that this is a true testimony of the events and the case as it unfolded. Please reach out to Mr. Cohen and his fabulous team for all your Personal Injury concerns. I’m very happy that I did. Thank you Mr. Cohen and the whole team for brining this sad event to a successful closure. Sincerely RJ.

Best personal injury attorney
Cohen and Cohen law group is the best law firm. I have used their services many times for different reasons, and they always do good work. If you are searching for the best personal injury attorney, Cohn and Cohn law group is the place to turn to. Mr. Cohn fought tooth and nail for me to get the compensation I deserve. There are many different attorneys out there, and it’s hard to find a good one. You can trust me. Cohen to get you the best results.

Mr. Cohen and his team including, Akhtem & Eraj, were a tremendous help to settle my personal injury case. I was in a car accident and sustained bodily injuries, but with the help of his law group, I was able to get reparations.

I am quite pleased with the outcome
Mr. Cohen and his team are highly skilled in their field as my case outcome proves. They do not leave any stone unturned until they feel that you as the client is satisfied with the result. They continue to work with me even during the unprecedented Covid related circumstances via remote technology. I was amazed and appreciative that they did not give up during that period. I would definitely recommend Mr Cohen should there anyone in need of a top notch lawyer.
