Exceptional Real Estate Legal Services
I was introduced to Laurence and his team 10 years ago and was immediately impressed with the service provided, in depth Real Estate knowledge for structuring contracts, efficiency in title closing preparation, and most importantly, details in the transaction. Phone calls and emails are addressed immediately. As the President of a mortgage company, I have dealt with a large number of attorney's, Laurence is the clear choice for both my personal business and the top referral to my clients.

Best Real Estate Attorney in the NW Suburbs
Laurence Cohen has been our family’s real estate attorney for the last 15 years. We have retained Larry for at least 5 real estate closing and would not consider closing on a house without his professional expertise. He has a wealth of knowledge about real estate closings and guides his clients through the maze of paperwork in order to ensure a successful closing. He is extremely detailed and will work with the other real estate professionals to ensure that his clients’ best interest are first and foremost. Larry is always one of the first points of contact when anyone in our family decides to buy or sell a house

Real Estate Investor
Have been working with Larry for over two years and we have closed many real estate deals buying and selling. I have worked with many other attorneys and Larry is by far the most personable, smart and very responsive to questions I have dealt with. I would recommend to anyone who is looking for a great Lawyer.

Senior Mortgage Originator
I have been working with Larry Cohen & paralegal Terry for the last 8 years and they have handled each & everyone of my clients with the utmost of respect and care! I always send my clients his way & ask my clients to just talk to Larry and they will quickly know why he is the only Real Estate Attorney that they should work with ! With today's ever changing market, Larry stays on top of the entire transaction from start to finish and makes sure that the other parties do as well for a smooth transaction for my clients! He is very well versed in all types of transactions and nothing gets by this attorney! Thank you Larry for all of your hard work & dedication!

This is your lawyer for your real estate transactions
We picked Larry to handle both of our home sale and purchase transactions and we couldn't be happier with our choice. We had an extremely difficult buyer coming in with a VA loan, and on top of that, that this buyer had some financing problems, which thought at one point it would kill both of our deals. Larry kept us on the loop on everything that was going on, and had leverage with the attorneys on our purchase side. Our deals were delayed almost a month because of this difficult buyer, but Larry handled this amazingly well and we didn't lose our dream home we wanted to purchase. All in all, from the time the contracts were signed, till we moved, took us 3 extremely stressful months. During difficult times, all we thought was "Larry is on our side, don't worry". And he did deliver. At the time of closing, we experienced no issues and everything was smooth. I'm sure Larry was happy to close on our deals, and we are extremely happy on how everything came out.

Professional and Communicative.
Larry helped make the potentially stressful process of selling our home in Illinois while living in Texas a smooth and easy activity. Larry and his team kept us constantly updated on the process and was able to speak to us in "non-litigious English", which was greatly appreciated on our end!! I would highly recommend Larry for any legal requirements, especially for any real estate legal needs.

Larry Cohen Review
We've used Larry for several real estate transactions. He's one of the best in his field and we highly recommend him to anyone that needs an attorney who is knowledgeable, trustworthy and provides the guidance that every real estate purchaser/seller requires.

Protect Your Transactions with the BEST
Larry is the best RE attorney I've come across in the industry. I work for a large private real estate investing company that purchases well over 100 properties a year, and we trust all of them with Larry. Why? Because he knows what he's doing, and knows the ins and outs of the various types of real estate transactions that can take place so we can navigate our investments safely and securely. We don't trust any other attorney to do so, and recommend that you do the same.

Great Attorney
I have worked with Mr. Laurence Cohen over that past 10 years. We've closed multiple residential and commercial transactions together. I find Mr. Cohen and his staff extremely knowledgeable, prompt in returning phone calls and exceptional at resolving any issues. His negotiation skills are far superior to any other attorney I've worked with. Simply put if Mr. Cohen's office is still accepting new clients you would be lucky to have him on your side. He has always saved me multiples of what he's charged me in attorney fees and I am honored to recommend him. He has always exceeded my expectations.

Larry Cohen is incredibly knowledgeable and diligent in his work as a real estate attorney. He has vast experience in this business segment and knows how to evaluate the finer points of transactions so that his clients are always best-served. His name and reputation across the greater Chicagoland is known and respected for getting real estate deals done quickly and efficiently. If you're not working with this guy - you're working from a disadvantage...

The best!
I am a real estate broker, and I have worked with Larry for 20 years. He goes above an beyond for every client. He has has helped me keep countless deals together over the years with his excellent negotiation skills, and client service, always with the clients' best interest at heart. As an agent, his office always keeps me well informed of what is happening in the transaction, and is very attentive to every client and transaction no matter how big or small. Not only do I recommend every one of my clients to Larry, but he has closed every home that I have ever purchased personally. You can not make a better choice in an attorney!
