The best!
I can't believe I forgot and waited so long to review him! Mr Cohen was able to resolve my case better than I originally hoped for. I couldn't be more thrilled with his counsel!
Posted by Cora | May 15, 2014
Within 48 hours of hiring Mr. Bradford Cohen, he was able to reduce my brother's felony charge to a misdemeanor. Mr. Cohen did in 48 hours what another lawyer did not do for my brother in one year. For a busy lawyer, Mr. Cohen was surprisingly very accommodating. He always made himself available for meetings. He also promptly responded to emails and kept us informed on the status of the case. He took all of my phone calls or called me back within minutes. I am just impressed at how quickly he responded to my questions. I am also very impressed with his knowledge of law and his professionalism. He exudes confidence. You'll never go wrong with him if you hire him. He is an incredible lawyer!

My own pitbull
I cannot stop thanking Bradford enough for the fine work he performed. Experience did count and I am glad that I did not retain the other criminal lawyers I spoke too. I can't speak highly enough about his work ethic, availability, knowledge about the law and his attitude.

Thank You
Bradford's knowledge of case law and his manners in the courtroom gave me confidence he would be be able to secure me a successful outcome. I was very pleased with his staff and the results I received.
Posted by anonymous | June 24, 2008
I was impressed
I hired Bradford due to his reputation as an excellent Fort Lauderdale Criminal Lawyer. I read about him on the internet in regards to his reputation for representing people like Vanilla Ice and Dennis Rodman. I am thrilled that I hired him and very happy with the results he got on my case (motion to supress was granted and my case was dismissed)

"There is no shortage of good criminal defense lawyers in South Florida, and Brad certainly ranks among them. I have watched Mr. Cohen argue in court and there is no doubt that he knows what he is doing. If I ever needed a quality criminal defense attorney who has no fear in a courtroom, I'd be very happy with Mr. Cohen as my attorney. And, no, he didn't ask me to write this - I just think the good attorneys who work down here should be noticed."
