Leslie was recommended to me when my ex wanted to modify custody. An ad litem was appointed to review the custody and he did his part but Leslie did absolutely little to nothing except "talk" to me about what he was going to do but never did. I communicated with the ad litem directly. It took almost 5 years to end up where we started and that was no change in custody and over 5000.00. His assistant is very pompous and disrespectful. Unprofessional. Leslie doe not need to continue to take on cases and accept money when it is obvious that his case load is extremely out of balance. It is not fair at all to his new clients.....

Mr. Cohn was referred to me by a friend and she gave him high remarks. He did nothing for me, besides take my money. His paralegal that handled my case was extremely rude. I even informed him how she treats the clients, but it did not change her treatment towards me (or possibly others). He did such a horrible job that I had to hire a different attorney to take my ex back to court. Mr. Cohn is expensive and will have you make an appointment with him (after the first charge consultation) only to burn up your retainer and not actually do any "lawyering." If I knew then what I know now I would have filed a Board Complaint.

Leslie was my attorney when I went through a messy divorce. He shielded me from my wife and her attorney well. He is well versed and protected my assets. I recommend him.

I have used Leslie Cohn's services on two occasions. Once, for child support modification and once for non-payment of child support order. He charged be around $3600.00 for the modification. I paid that fee in full. A few years later, I went back to pay for the non payment and he charged me $750.00. On my paperwork after court, it stated that I was to receive those monies paid back to me directly. After my ex husband paid the money back, I received a check for $3300.00, but did not get my attorney's fees back. The lawyer stated that normally he charges $1700.00 for that type of case and that the $875.00 for "attorney's fees" and the "50.00" for the "court fees" were the other part of that $1700.00 that I supposedly owed him but that was never discussed with me. I did not sign an agreement with him. I trusted him but will NEVER trust him again. He is the only lawyer that I've ever hired and has completely destroyed my faith. I even have a paper from the court that says those monies should come directly to the plaintiff, NOT the attorney.
