Professional, kind and high knowledgeable!
Mr. Cohen represented me in probating my grandmother's estate. It was a very complex case, that even included a lien from Medicare. If it wasn't for Mr. Cohen's savviness, I would not have received any portion of my inheritance. Additionally, he was kind enough to reduce his fees in order to help me. I highly recommend him for all your legal needs.

Best probate lawyer
I was extremely lucky to find Mr. Cohen. Especially at a time when I was totally lost on how to handle these legal matters. Mr. Cohen was very professional. Gathered all the information from me. Then had me come back in and review what he had assembled. All the material was thorough and concise. Anything I didn’t understand he was more than happy to explain. He alleviated me of all the tension of having to deal with the legal world that I was not familiar with. He made my experience a lot better than I could’ve ever hoped for. My outcome was excellent. Again more than I could’ve ever hoped for. This is the gentleman who will get it done.

Highly Recommended
My experience with Mr. Cohen was exceptional. Without his help I know that I would not have had the successful outcome I had. My case was extremely difficult, as we encountered many issues that were unexpected. But Mr. Cohen worked tirelessly to ensure everything was presented in truth. He has also stood by every one of my requests and guided me through the entire lengthy process. I very much appreciate the knowledge and support I received from Mr. Cohen and will be forever grateful for what he did for my family. Highly recommended!

The Practice of Being Extraordinary
Attorney Peter Cohen worked tirelessly on a stunning and extremely complex case of familial co-trustee breach of fiduciary. His plan was successful at every juncture because he believed in what was right, what was true, what was just. He was deeply committed to my case through all of it's distressing disguises and was free to work with an ease that amazed me. When he wanted something done, the speed with which he achieved completion and success almost took my breath away. Attorney Cohen gave me a juridical voice and left a mark of accomplishment through a timely combination of insight, creativity, devotion and integrity that sets a legal standard for the measure of all things.

Awesome
The best lawyer in South Florida. Peter helped me and my sister with our father’s estate. We couldn’t ask for a better lawyer. Very professional and knows exactly what he is doing. I would use him again if I need to and would recommend him in a heartbeat. Goes above and beyond for his clients.

Competent & Trustworthy
Two years ago I was referred to Peter A. Cohen while pursuing representation in a very complicated case of Elder Abuse and Fiduciary Misconduct. A knowledgeable recovery expert had identified Peter Cohen as an attorney posessing the requisite skills to effectively deal with such a complex case. As we successfully approach the final chapter in this challenging endeavor I am pleased to say that in my interaction with Peter Cohen, I have found him to be a professional, pragmatic, and compassionate attorney and human being. I feel confident that going forward, I would seek to confer with Peter as I faced any legal concern.

Thank you.
Mr. Cohen, I know we part ways on unfriendly terms. Please forgive me if for any reason you may feel I have disrespected, used or dishonored you. That was not my intention I was trying to express. When I lashed out in the email it was not at you. It was me screaming. To me everything was going wrong and there were constant road blocks. I could not see the forest from the trees and I am so sorry. During the time you were helping me with my uncle’s case, I was on the verge of a nervous breakdown. My nerves was shot. All I was concern with was getting my uncle to safety to Virginia and closing all loose ends so Florida would not take him back from me. Selfishness on my part. When I came to you I was a broken person mentally, spiritually, physically and just about financially. God could not have sent me to a better lawyer. You were there through thick and thin. When we could not get a response from the doctors what did you do? You got a case manager involved that was God send and got the ball running even faster. You and the case manager got my uncle from the abusive environment and kept him safe from his abuser for 2 months until his case was transferred to Virginia. I know without a shadow of a doubt you have done much more for my uncle case than we paid you for. For that I THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH!!! You are an amazing, caring and dedicated lawyer. If people only knew what a great, wonderful, compassionate person and lawyer you are. I would recommend you highly without hesitation to anyone who made need a lawyer in your area.

Most Experienced and skilled Attorney in S. Florida
I feel compelled to write this review in hope of helping someone else who feels that they have a case that has totally defeated them financially, emotionally, and spiritually. That is how I felt after speaking to several Attorneys regarding my case. Thanks to Peter Cohen I now have hope and peace of mind. I consulted with Peter on a Saturday afternoon, he spent 4 hours of his time listening and devising a solution to my case. Unlke the other Attorneys that I had spoken to, Mr. Cohen took my case that day and formulated a strategy that is nothing short of brilliant. His cost for service was less than the other Attorneys and the quality of work is truly a God send. This is a very gifted Counsellor. I sincerely cannot express in words my gratitude for him. Mr. Cohen is bringing Justice for me and my deceased mother. I highly recommend this Attorney you won't find a better one!

Mr. Cohen goes above and beyond
Thank you very much for all your help and efforts to make this all possible. Everything has fallen into place as a result of you acting on this so promptly and efficiently. Thank you for helping to put my mind at rest, as I have been consumed with worry for over a year. Confirmation of tax receipts received. That was a glorious sight to see and a huge relief. Once again I would like to thank you for your time and energy that you put forth to make this all possible. If not for your quick action, knowledge and expertise, this situation could have been a whole other scenario. I would just like to reiterate how fortunate I feel to have been introduced to you. Mr. Cohen you have my utmost gratitude.

REVIEW PETER A. COHEN
Mr. Cohen was a Court appointed attorney in my Case. Mr. Cohen has exceptional legal experience, in addition to treating me with the most respect and compassion through this difficult time.

Peter A. Cohen, Esq.
Mr. Cohen was the only attorney to offer me and my two brothers reasonable fees back in 2002 to represent us in a will and contest case with . Judge Maria Korvick # 02-5401 Division 3 . After winning this case, Mr. Cohen filed suit against Ocean Bank and won, filed suit againt two attorneys and won and finally helped in mediating in BK court. Mr. Cohen has proved himself to be of trust worthy and of good and sound character in and out of court.

Excellence and Professionalism.
I had to hire Peter Cohen as a lawyer in 2009, due to a litigation about my late father's State.Dr Cohen was very professional,reliable and knowledgeable.My case lasted 3 years and on those 3 years he did not received any money,only until the end. I strongly recommend his services,I think is one of the best on South Florida in the area of Will and Probate. Also during 3 years dealing with him I learned that he is a religious family man with high values.

Valentin's review of Peter Cohen
Following the death of my mother I contacted Mr.Cohen to represent me in a probate case of her estate,I could have made no better choice in my selection of an attorney.He was extremely professional and yet compassionate in his handling of that situation.I would and have recommended his services to more then one friend or associate.His expertise and knowkedge prevailed and I would happily request his representation if the need ever arose
