This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
An admonition means an attorney did something wrong but may still practice law. The Bar gives the lawyer an admonition in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.
Wayne’s comment: “In 2001, the OBC found that Mr. Cohen "fully cooperated" with its investigation. Ultimately the OBC issued an "informal admonition." Because of the minor nature, at no point was Mr. Cohen's license to practice law ever revoked or suspended, and Mr. Cohen went on to become the President of the Trial Lawyers Association (DC) after this matter. He also retained his position as an Associate Professorial Lecturer of Law from 1993 until the present. The full matter is online.”

Mr. Cohen provided excellent advice regarding how to resolve a thorny traffic citation issue. The end result was a dismissed case. I would strongly recommend using Mr. Cohen in similar situations.

I had a consultation with Mr. Cohen, and he was very professional. He did not ultimately accept my case, which might normally have aggravated me. But he explained why and was a pleasure to deal with.

I worked with Mr. Cohen a few years ago. He and his firm did a great job handling my case, a bad car accident in the Washington, DC area. My car was hit by an 18 wheeler truck on the Beltway just before the Dulles Toll Road. The truck was traveling in the right lane and decided to change lanes without seeing my car. It hit the side of my car and traveled with my car for about half a mile. If it weren't for our seatbelts, my husband and I would have been killed. Luckily, the injuries were not life threatening. Mr. Cohen made sure that all of my medical bills were handled and helped me deal with my car insurance company. He was very thorough! I would recommend Mr. Cohen to anyone that has had a car accident in the Washington DC area.
