The RIGHT person to help you navigate through the divorce process
I have personal friends that are divorce attorneys and I chose Ms. Cohn. I can’t think of a more competent, empathetic, brilliant attorney to have represented me throughout one of the most challenging experiences of my life. I can say with confidence that Diana Cohn ALWAYS acts in her clients’ best interest. Ms. Cohn spent extensive time explaining and guiding me throughout every step of the divorce process. If you find yourself in the unfortunate situation of a divorce, you will be in excellent hands with Diana Cohn.

Ms. Cohn is the best!
I’m so appreciative of everything Ms. Cohn did for me in the custody case with my children. My kids father and his lawyer were difficult during the whole custody process, but Ms. Cohn put my mind at ease and helped me to see the whole picture. She represented me very well and we got exactly what I was hoping for in my case. Thank you!

Amazing Advocate for Divorce and Child custody case
Words can not describe how wonderful Diana Cohn and her firm Cohn Slater is. You're not just getting an attorney, you're also getting a friend and advocate who will fight for you every step of the way. I had a very tough divorce and child custody case and no one but Diana could of done what she did so well. She always had my kids best interests and safety on mind. Diana goes out of her way and spends countless hours on your case. She never gives up and will always keep you informed every step of the way. She went above and beyond for my family. I am so thankful and blessed to have had her by my side.
