great person. better lawyer
I was looking for an attorney to hire for my case, I interviewed many. Yet, when I spoke with Mr. Cohen, he made me feel very comfortable knowing that he could handle this type of case. I was extremely happy with his services. Mr. Cohen got me a non-criminal disposition. of all the attorneys that I interviewed I am happy I picked Mr. Cohen. I highly recommend him!!

I am writing to express my strong recommendation for Mr. Jeff Cohen based on his exceptional legal representation in my recent legal matter. Faced with potential serious consequences, including a potential prison sentence, Mr. Cohen's expertise and dedication led to an outstanding outcome that exceeded my expectations. In the face of these significant legal challenges, Mr. Cohen's strategic approach resulted in a favorable resolution. His negotiation skills and commitment ensured a minimal penalty, and he provided assurance that there is no record of the incident, allowing me to move forward without the looming threat of a prison sentence or legal burden. Mr. Cohen's compassionate and client-focused approach, combined with his legal proficiency, made the process smooth and reassuring. If you are seeking a dedicated professional who skillfully navigates potential prison sentences and delivers exceptional results, I wholeheartedly recommend Mr. Jeff Cohen.

Exceptional Defense Attorney, Highly Recommended!
I recently had the privilege of being represented by Jeffrey D. Cohen in a complex weapons possession case. From the outset, Jeffrey D. Cohen demonstrated an extraordinary level of professionalism, expertise, and commitment. Their deep understanding of criminal law and strategic approach were evident in every interaction. Notably, Jeffrey D. Cohen was incredibly attentive and responsive, ensuring that I was well-informed and comfortable throughout the process. Their ability to navigate the legal system with such skill and confidence was truly impressive. The outcome of my case – a complete dismissal – speaks volumes about Jeffrey D. Cohen's capabilities as a defense attorney. I am immensely grateful for their dedication and hard work in achieving this result. I cannot overstate the peace of mind and relief I felt having such a competent professional on my side. For anyone in need of a criminal defense attorney, I cannot recommend Jeffrey D. Cohen highly enough. Their exceptional skills, combined with a genuine concern for their clients, make them a standout in their field!!

Criminal Attorney Review
Mr. Jeff Cohen is not your average lawyer. His lawyer presence and knowledge is substantially essential when we talking about winning outcomes. He knows his law for well and is for his client. Mr.Cohen was my personal attorney for a probation case and although I didn’t get the outcome he worked hard to get me the best offer. At the end, I was satisfied with his service.

Excellent Attorney
I had the pleasure of working with Jeffrey Cohen on a recent legal matter and I cannot recommend him highly enough. From the beginning, Jeff was responsive, professional, and compassionate. Jeff took the time to listen to my concerns and answer all of my questions. He provided clear explanations of the legal process and kept me updated every step of the way. I never felt like I was in the dark or left wondering what was happening with my case. Jeff's expertise and attention to detail were evident throughout the process. He was able to negotiate with attorneys to help me achieve a favorable outcome. I couldn't be happier with the result. Overall, I was extremely impressed with Jeff's professionalism and dedication to his clients. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone in need of legal services in New York.

The Best Lawyer!
First and foremost, I would like to thank Mr.Cohen for his time and dedication. It didn't go unnoticed. He was a hired public defender for my cousin. whom isn't the easiest to deal with, But Mr.Cohen got it done! We all know most public defenders do not care much about your case, and would pretty much get you to take any plea deal Just so your case would be over. Welp that's NOT the case with Mr.Cohen he is very dedicated and passionate for what he does. When he's speaking on behave of his client you can hear the sincerity and his voice. He Never left me out of the conversation. He always kept me informed about my cousins case. He always acknowledge to the courts that i was there for my cousin each and everytime I was there. This man took a personal day off and still answered My text while at a funeral. You honestly cant get anymore dedicated than that! If you're looking for a lawyer who's on your side and will help u fight a fair fight give this man a call. He's seriously the best at what he does. Thank you again Mr.Cohen. May God continue to bless you!

Excellent experience with Mr. Cohen
I hired Mr. Cohen to represent my teenage son in an unfortunate incident which could have scarred him for life. Mr. Cohen not only fought to make sure that my son had a fair shot, but he did it with such care and compassion. Aside from his extensive knowledge of the criminal law system, he made sure my son, and family as a whole, always had piece of mind. It felt like he was fighting for his own kid. As a result, my son was exonerated! Mr. Cohen gave my son another chance at life and I will forever be grateful to him for that.
