Attorney Laura Cohen--the best!
Attorney Cohen and her staff work quickly and competently to avoid any unnecessary fees. They always listen to me and explain everything to me in a way that I can understand. They possess a tremendous knowledge of the law and court proceedings and are very responsive to the demands of my case, which is complicated and involved. She and her staff work with the highest integrity and are absolutely trustworthy. I enthusiastically recommend her to anyone needing a family or estate lawyer.

Amazing lawyer!!!!!!
Laura is one tough lady, yet realistic. She is very honest, trustworthy and fair to all parties involved. She listens to you as a friend would and she really understands what you are going through. Unlike some attorneys, Laura will not try to drag your case out for for her own personal benefit. She was very cut and dry, straight to the point. Laura kept me informed, I was never in the dark about my divorce. Her extreme knowledge and respect for the law is phenominal. Lauras knowledge of the pain from a divorce truly reflects in the unbelievable concern and care she has for her clients. I could never thank her enough and would refer her to anyone.
