Bob Cohen represented me in my divorce 13 years ago. To this day I am so grateful to him for his knowledge, his understanding, his compassion and unwavering support and guidance. My children and I truly had and have a much more healthier and fuller life after divorce because of him. Through the years I have recommended him to friends who thank me continuously. He is everything one would want representing them during this trying time and he believes in "happily ever after"

I was referred to Robert through a friend. From the minute I walked into his office, I knew he was the perfect lawyer for me. He is extremely caring and compassionate. Robert is extremely knowledgeable and always there for his clients. He is responsive to his clients needs. Robert made a very stressful situation a little more tolerable. If you need a divorce attorney, Robert Cohen is my recommendation.

Bob Cohen made my divorce feel nearly effortless for me & if your here looking for a divorce attorney that may seem incomprehensible but it's a fact.
He made it possible for me to focus on what was important and trust all the rest was being taken care of by him.
First off, his assistant Denise is great but Bob was directly accessible to me which was important.
He's also honest and was helpful in my decisions on what to fight for and what to let go of and those things I wanted to hold onto, Bob Cohen made sure I got them in the end.
He knows how and when to play hard or nice with the other side & he's a master at disguising one for the other which just speaks to his seasoned talent in doing this.
I knew of Bob's work prior to my divorce as he "victoriously" handled two other divorces for two separate friends of mine, and honestly he killed it for both of them. Once I found out my spouse was lawyering up I knew I wanted Bob Cohen's skill set on my side & I knew for sure I didn't want him on theirs so I was quick to get to him first.
Bob Cohen is the white knight...... He takes the higher ground and you can sense it in all your conversations regarding your strategies etc but make no mistake because hands down this guy a freaking pitbull and he kicks some serious a#* on your behalf.... He'll wipe the floor with your opposition, he just has a special way of kicking a#* that comes across with dignity and intelligence.
You will be so glad he's on your side. And in the end he gets you out of your marriage with your dignity, your wallet and your future entirely intact.
I can't think of a single time in the year or two of my divorce that I felt differently.
I'm a big fan of his not just for what he accomplished for me but moreover how he accomplished it.
I can't stress enough how significant that is because it is such a stressful event in life. Your world is in question during divorce and you won't have all the answers... He'll help you find your way through it, you can trust him to protect you & your interests, and you can focus on you - knowing he'll handle the heck outta your divorce.
I'm sorry you're looking for an attorney, that's never a sign of a high point in one's life, but at least with the right attorney you can be on track for a next high point in your future.
I'd say good luck but you don't need luck you need a great lawyer & Bob Cohen is the best.
So get Bob & get on to your life's next chapter.
