Are you an attorney? Endorse this lawyer

  • Daniel R Skarie

    I highly endorse this lawyer. I had the pleasure of attending the DUI Defense Lawyers Association summer conference with Atty. Cohen. Michael is an extremely skilled and knowledgeable trial attorney. I would have no hesitation referring a friend or family member to Atty. Cohen.

  • Heather Crosby Pauls

    While Mike and I do not work together anymore, I believe Mike to be hands-down the number one defense attorney in the area. He might not be warm and fuzzy, but he gets the job done and does a great job for his clients. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Mike.
