About Harvey

Learn Harvey’s areas of practice.

After graduating from Stetson School of Law, Harvey was employed by the State Attorney’s Office.  As a state prosecutor, Mr. Cohen handled thousands of criminal cases. He conducted over 40 jury trials, countless motion practice and depositions. Mr. Cohen branched out as a solo practitioner without staff or associates. He has been able to grow his firm to over 50 employees, including 16 attorneys. Mr. Cohen is licensed to practice for all Federal and State Courts. Mr. Cohen is also a proud veteran of the U.S Army. He was enlisted from 1985-1989 and his assignments took him all the way from New York to Panama.   In 2004 and 2005 during the many hurricanes we had here in Florida, Mr. Harvey V. Cohen started representing hurricane damage cases. Mr. Cohen, met with some restoration companies and thought of a way to teach them assignment of benefits so that they could get paid directly from insurance companies, just like medical doctors and Pip suits. Mr. Cohen, has literally handled thousands of insurance claims.   Mr. Cohen, is known throughout the state of Florida and nationwide as the go to attorney for assignment of benefit contract cases as it pertains to the restoration industry.   Mr. Cohen has been a presenter for the RIA, Restoration Industry Association and other professional trade groups. The RIA is the oldest and largest nonprofit, professional trade association dedicated to providing leadership and promoting best practices through advocacy standards and professional qualifications for the restoration industry. They represent over 20,000 members.  Mr. Cohen, has been a presenter for the RIA on several subjects, including assignment of insurance benefits.   Mr. Cohen teaches courses that provide continuing education credits approved through the IICRC. The IICRC certifies restoration companies for trade specific talents. IICRC courses help restoration professionals keep up with the latest techniques, technology and education for the restoration industry. Mr. Cohen’s, IICRC approved course, Insider Secrets Assignment of Benefit, is very informative  due to its content regarding insurance claims and contracts.     Mr. Cohen and his firm are great supporters of the community. Mr. Cohen is very involved with the Leukemia Lymphoma Society and many other charities including: ·       Hope and Help which is a charity that raises money for AIDS patients ·       SPCA which helps raise money for pets and animals, ·       The Jewish Community Center, ·       The YMCA, ·       Susan G. Coleman ·       Down Syndrome Association and many more.     Although Mr. Cohen has handled thousands of civil cases, only four cases went all the way to jury verdict. Mr. Cohen and his firm took the Hipolito property damage case to trial and won. Mr. Cohen has also taken a windshield case to trial. However, after the jury was chosen, the insurance company settled the case.   Mr. Cohen, continues to work with the restoration industry and the legislature in Tallahassee. He also works with the consumer advocate's group and the CFOs office regarding insurance issues and consumer protections. For instance, Mr. Cohen went to Tallahassee in 2013 to fight against anti-consumer-based legislation that tried to do away with the assignment of benefits in House bill 909 and Senate bill 1600.     Member (Current and Former):             •  Florida Bar Association             •  Association of Trial Lawyers of America             •  Academy of Florida Trial Lawyers             •  US District Court Middle District of Florida             •  Orange County Bar Association             •  American Bar Association             •  ABA Tort and Insurance Practice Section             •  Trial Lawyers Section of the Florida Bar   Mr. Cohen's Trial Experience Includes:             •  Personal Injury             •  1st Party Insurance             •  Automobile Negligence             •  Drug Possession             •  DUI             •  Misdemeanors             •  Grand Theft             •  Felony Battery             •  Robbery with a Firearm - See more at: #

Professional Team of Lawyers
Harvey and his team of lawyers are very professional and extremely knowledgeable when it comes to insurance claims. I have recommended them to many of my commercial and multifamily clients, who needed an attorney to help them with their hurricane claims. They go the distance when advocating for their clients. HIGHLY RECOMMEND THEM!!!

Above and Beyond
I was given Cohen & Battisti's number from another attorney friend of mine and cant thank that friend enough. i have never seen an attorney put money aside and represent someone with so much love. My brother n laws life was taken away, leaving two beautiful young children behind, by a careless drunk driver. Not only did he represent our family in this case but he truly acted like family. Without knowing us he and his staff appeared at the funeral and supported us the whole way through. Justice was served on that case. i would recommend and do recommend his firm to all.

Employment Law
Mr. Cohen is extremely trustworthy and loyal. I have had a few cases and I would only go to him because of his quick responses and always giving me knowedgeable information. Not once have i ever had to hunt him or look for him in regards to my case. He has always kept me up to date almost minute by minute about the facts and details of my cases. The confidence in his work and work ethic is well deserved and will definitely put your mind at ease. Not once have i ever sat down and that I would lose because he has a winning mentality. He proves that he will fight for your rights and he does it well.

Great law firm and accessible attorneys
Harvey Cohen and his firm are very personable and reliable. The attorneys and staff are always available to speak with me in regards to my case.

Very Professional
Harvey was very easy to deal with. Typically you meet with an attorney, he asks for a retainer and you never speak with them again. After that its assistants and parallegals. Harvey has always managed to take the time to speak to me or any of my referrals. I would recommend him to anyone.
