I consulted with Michael Cohen regarding child support issues. He took the time to review court documents and provide valuable advice, even though it was only a consultation. I appreciate the time he put in to provide me with that advice.

Michael was an excellent attorney who helped me through a very difficult divorce with my very unreasonable ex wife. When Michael wasn't able to get me a quick , amicable and fair settlement, he began a more aggressive approach to my divorce. Michael began to slowly wear down my-ex and he finally helped me get settlement that I was pleased with. Michael knows divorce law and knows how to strategize against his adversaries to bring them to their knees when they are not amicable. His legal paperwork is also impeccable . Michael was pretty much superior to my wife's lawyer in every way from his professionalism to his litigation strategies. Michael is always available to speak with and always makes you feel your case is very important to him. Michael is knowable is ALL areas of divorce and custody and I would strongly recommend just about anyone in any situation to him.

Despite all of the emotional baggage, negativity and stress that comes with a divorce Michael is highly-effective at focusing on the getting though the divorce with least amount of collateral damage.
I believe that we (Michael and I) came out of my divorce successfully. It's not winning, it's about coming out of it fairly. In my case, we have two young children involved. Michael and I developed a strategy and we stuck by it throughout the emotional roller coaster known as a divorce proceeding. Although the proceeding took a bit longer to execute than it should have (thanks to the flip-flopping of the other side), we finally got it done. Finances and kids fairly handled. Little to no collateral damage from the divorce proceedings.
One comment that Michael made early on that impacted me is that a divorce is a business separation. Said another way, I/you need to look at divorce as a separation of a business-- nothing personal; it's only business. Anytime I found myself getting a little emotionally charged-up, I would remind myself, "this is just business."
Beyond that, Michael is very knowledgeable and adept at providing the pros and cons for every question, option or scenario to help guide me (or you) through this journey. Most importantly, he knows the law. He was patient, kind, and really enabled me (or you) to make the best decisions with all of the information in front of you. Michael was not interested in starting World War 3 between you and your spouse if unwarranted, but he surely did not suffer fools lightly. If the opposing lawyer made poor comments, motions, etc. he was quick and aggressive to nip that in the butt. Anytime we hit some turbulence with the opposing lawyer, it was extinguished.
I would strongly recommend Michael to another and I have already done so. I would certainly use him again, but I hope that I won't need to.

I used Michael for my divorce. He was my second attorney and what a difference he made from the first attorney. Whenever I called Michael he always either answered his phone or got back to me right away. He fought very hard for me and got my case settled as quick as he could. He also didn't bill me for every minute he could. I called him many times to ask him questions and he answered my questions and spent time on the phone with me and didn't chsrge me a penny. He made a difficult time much easier for me.

Michael represented me on several child support actions with Nassau County Family Court.
• Honest accurate portrayal of what the court experience would be
• Very effective in providing me options to consider, carefully explaining the pros and cons of alternative courses of action
• Provided recommendations that proved to be effective. Did not encourage steps that would be unsuccessful or waste time and money.
• Very empathetic. He took personal interest in me and my case. Years later, he still checks in to see how things are going
• Made a painful process easier
• I trust him and would hire him again
I would be happy to discuss in more detail

Michael is a very trustworthy attorney, when I brought my case to him, he told me how it will be before even I picked him, didn't give me a false hope like some other lawyers did, But in the end by the grace of god and Michael's hard work, I won the case.

Extremely knowledgeable and trustworthily. As a Male facing a divorce and/or custody battle, the cards are stacked against us before entering court, "it is what it is", but Mr. Cohen somehow eases the pain without increasing the stress levels. In other words, he doesn't add lighter fluid to red hot briquettes... Most of all, Mr. Cohen is not a Thief as many of them are!
Thanks again for your help

Mr Cohen was great to me ... Very conscious of my budget ... kept in communication with me ... and kicked my ex-wife's attorney's ass. He took me on as a client even though I wasn't going to be a big moneymaker for him ... and treated me like I was his most important case.

Although getting a divorce is an extremely emotional and difficult process to go through, Michael truly helped make the experience as painful as possible. Not only was he responsive to my needs and, extremly patient with my many questions/concerns, Michael was also very sensitive to the impact a divorce would have on my child, along with my overall financial health. On every occaison he took the time to guide me to settlement strategies that always put my child's best interest first and, simlutaneously have the least negative impact on us, overall. Michael is truly a consumate professional, one of those "rare bread of lawyers" that seem more concerned about their clients than themsleves and, someone I would galdy recommend to family and friends.
