He got me a settlement in under a year and a half. He kept me in loop at times, he isn't dismissive.. He has great instincts. He is very clear, helpful and guiding... he really helped my family in the immediate aftermath of the accident I was involved in. He was very supportive and reassuring that he would do what he could to get me back on my feet and that is exactly what he did. He is a great person to deal with.

I can say with confidence The Avi Cohen Law Firm, is the Top Law Firm in NY. I am a retired NYPD Police Officer & was referred to Avi Cohen through a highly respected Private Investigator I know, & I still can't thank him enough for pointing me in the right direction. Avi Cohen got me all the records I needed for my case, before the defendant knew what hit them, and has connections to all of NY's top Private Investigators. Avi can find a needle in a needle in a haystack, and he certainly did in my case.
The case I had was against one of the biggest National Commercial Banks in the country. I called other firms in NY to see if they could help me, and was rejected each time, or they wanted a large retainer fee, and charge me a very high hourly rate. Once I met Avi, He really took the time to listen and hear me out. He didn't charge me a consultation fee, and provides all his clients with a personal service you'd expect from a family member. No matter how many times I called Avi Cohen on his personal cell phone number with new info on the case, Avi would always get right back to me, and never charged a dime, no matter how long we talked. I always dealt with Avi, not a Paralegal like you do with some other firms. I've never met a more focused, tough as nails & highly intelligent attorney in my life, and believe me, I've dealt with them all in my former line of work. Nobody knows all types of Laws better than Avi Cohen. He's a litigator no other Attorney wants to see on the other side, or piss off. He's like a Pitt bull when it comes to protecting his clients.
It took Avi a week to figure out my case, and he agreed to take it. He mapped out a long term plan and guaranteed me a successfully outcome. True to his word, he settled the case to my great satisfaction without going through the long drawn out process of Supreme Court.
Whatever type of case you have, or if you ever find yourself in a jam, Avi Cohen is the Attorney you need to call.

I was going through a tough time. Found out my ex-wife using me for a green card and falsely accused me of things I didn't do. I thought I was finished because men always lose in Divorce Court. Then I walked into Avi Cohen's office and he gave me a ray of hope. He gave it to me straight and told me what I needed to do. On my court date he got my case settled before even seeing a judge. I got what I wanted from the settlement and then some. I knew I hired the right lawyer the minute I walked into his office. He's tough, smart and can you make you laugh when times look dark!
