Robert Alan Cohen

also known as Rob Cohen, Robert A. Cohen

About me

For over thirty years I have engaged complex problems facing individuals and small businesses.  My firm has helped hundreds of people and enterprises solve litigation problems, enforce their rights, or defend themselves in court..

Now, The Rob Cohen Law Office, LLC works for the community of elders and those who have become disables or incapacitated.  Rededicated to the field of Elder Law, I am promising the same level of service to anyone facing the problem of long term care, and the careful use of assets to ensure the treatment, comfort, and dignity that we all deserve -- without becoming impoverished.
