I am a native Floridian, born in Miami, Florida.  My entire professional career has been spent practicing law helping individuals and families.  My father, Allan Cohen, was a founding partner in a personal injury law firm and a renowned trial lawyer.  I had the opportunity to witness my first jury trial when I was only 15 years old.  Since then I have seen many jury trials and had the privilege of trying many jury trials.  I am proud to be a second generation Florida personal injury attorney helping individuals and families in their catastrophic injury and wrongful death claims.

Outstanding Experience
My accident left me with a lot of stress, questions and uncertainty. I contacted a few law firms before I met with Judson Cohen at Weinstein & Cohen. They were very prompt and professional. They contact me as needed and get back to me very quickly if I have any questions. Everything has been smooth and it's great to have all the stress of dealing with insurance companies off my shoulders. Weinstein & Cohen took care of everything. I would not have kept my sanity without Judson Cohen and his Paralegal Christine. They kept me up to date and eased my anxiety. I hope I am never in this situation again but if I am, I know Weinstein & Cohen is just a phone call away. It is clear that their client’s satisfaction is their #1 priority.

LEGAL EAGLE
I am very fortunate to find Attorney Judson L. Cohen to defend my rights in a personal injury claim against Progressive Insurance. I was injured when i was cutoff by a van while riding my road bike in the bike lane in front of the Miami Seaquarium and suffered a dislocated shoulder, broken rib and other neck and elbow nerve trauma. I am someone who tries to minimize problems so for three years I tried to save costs for everyone involved by dealing directly with Progressive, but to no avail. The settlement i was offered would not cover even a two day stay in the hospital. After three years i still suffered everyday from pain in my left shoulder and arm. Then through AVVO i located Mr. Cohen and everything changed. You might say the dark clouds cleared and a powerful sun came out. In six months the entire matter was resolved, and without going to trial. In the end (even after costs), i received 100% more than what i would have received if i had accepted the original settlement offer from Progressive. My family and I appreciate very much what Mr. Cohen accomplished pursuing my injury claim. Now i have a good financial cushion in case further medical treatment is needed. The way he handled the case restores my faith that positive outcomes are possible. What I learned is for this success to happen you really need the right professional on your side to fight for your rights. And unequivocally the one lawyer who i want on my side is Judson Cohen. I give his practice the highest recommendation. Thank you very much ! !

He is a wonderful person.
My case had to do with an injury which I happened to get in a local fair ground. Mr. Judson Cohen is a wonderful person. He did my case which I had doubts about from the start. He started by explaining to me what might or might not happened within the time frame of his researching my case. I really was amazed of how he really researched on my injury and had a specialist check out the actual mishap in of the injury. Which happened to be an actual mistake taken by the local fair ground individuals. He kept me clearly informed of everything which he was doing for my case. It was an amazing experience I would recommend him and his firm to everyone. ~ Maria

Great Attorney
Our experience with Judson was great. He was very knowledgeable, professional and always kept us up to date with our case. We were able to recover a settlement and we were very happy with everything. I will definitely recommend his services.

Judson Cohen was my dream team in my Personal Injury case. We WON!
Judson worked with me for a year and a half on my case. He was extremely professional and kept me in the loop on all matters, at all hours. He was part of my dream team (his staff is fantastic) that ultimately helped me win my case in October of 2011. I know that I couldn't have had such a good outcome without his help and knowledge. He dug deep, found what was needed to fight my case and we won! Simply put I would think of him first when recommending him to a friend or family member in the future. Not only do I think of him as my winning dream team but I consider him to now be a good friend. My heartfelt thanks to Judson Cohen for all of his hard work. He made a difficult and stressful experience into an easy to manage one. Judson is awesome and a true professional. I'm happy to give him a glowing review, it's the least I can do!

Exceptional Representation
We were in an accident and we contacted Judson immediately. He had been referred to us by someone who had used his services. He was on top of things all the way along and got us an exceptional settlement. All emails and phone calls were promptly returned if he was unavailable with answers to all our questions and if he didn't have the answer he got back to us quickly with one. Judson may handle other types of cases. The case isn't totally settled but it is for the most part. I liked the way he handled himself and the case. Very professional and knowledgeable.

"Mr. Cohen is by far, one of the very top personal injury lawyers and one of the best that I have worked with as opposing counsel in personal injury case. In the courtroom and in depositions, he is courteous and professional and has superior knowledge of personal injury. A solid track record, praise from his clients and high respect from other lawyers, along with his years of experience, make him one of the best. I highly endorse him."
Personal injury Attorney | Dec 14

"Judson is one of the most competent and thorough attorneys I have ever had the pleasure to work with on a case. His staff is personable and worked well with all my clients. Judson is passionate and detailed about the work he does. All of this means he gets excellent results in his cases, often times without having to go to trial. However, when he needs to, he can try a case and get fabulous results. Overall, I heartily recommend The Cohen Law Offices for any personal injury claims that need an attorney to be involved."

Personal injury Attorney | Aug 21
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"I endorse this lawyer. Judson fights hard for his clients. He is an effective litigator who is willing to go the extra mile to see that folks get what they deserve."
Personal injury Attorney | Jan 02
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Simply put, Judson is an elite personal injury attorney. Judson's knowledge of the law is vast and practically limitless, and is only matched by his level of diligence for, and professionalism towards, his clients. While some attorneys may get nervous if a case does not settle before trial, Judson excels in the courtroom, leading to impressive results for his clients. This makes Judson not just an attorney, but a trial attorney, which is of critical importance in personal injury cases. Not surprisingly, I am not the only one who has taken notice of Judson's legal skills and excellence. Judson is highly regarded in the legal community, both among the Bar and the bench alike. I, like so many others in the legal community, have the utmost confidence in, and respect for, Judson's immense abilities and wholeheartedly endorse him."
Personal injury Attorney | Dec 14
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Judson is an outstanding personal injury lawyer with a work ethic and skill that is second to none. I have worked side by side with Judson and I have been awed by his command of the courtroom. He is a rare find and any client would be lucky to have him as their counsel."
Personal injury Attorney | Dec 14
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"As an attorney, I know there are hundreds of PI attorneys in Miami to choose from. I chose Judson as my own personal injury lawyer for a recent accident where I was injured by a driver. Judson is a very skilled personal injury trial attorney; but perhaps even as important, he is an excellent negotiator. He is compassionate and caring, knowledgeable, organized, efficient and gets great results for his clients. I can personally & professionally recommend his services to anyone who needs an outstanding Miami personal injury attorney!"
Personal injury Attorney | Dec 14
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Dozens of lawyers in Miami and Fort Lauderdale think Judson is the "go to" attorney for personal injury matters-and I agree with them wholeheartedly. Judson is smart, aggressive and a walking encyclopedia of the laws that impact his clients. He's the type of top-tier personal injury litigator to whom you direct your best clients--a "bet the company" litigator who hits hard, and doesn't stop until the other side says, "mercy". He's well-known and highly respected by the Bar and bench alike, which is why when he walks into the courtroom people look up and pay attention to him. (Very few attorneys command that respect at any point in their careers--but Judson gets that kind of respect everyday, both inside and outside of the courtroom.) Over the years I have referred several clients to Judson, and all experienced great results. I have the highest confidence in his abilities, and highly endorse him."
