Mr. Cohn worked miracles for me!
Mr. Cohn is a caring and compassionate attorney who works very hard for his clients. Thanks to his representation at trial, I regained custody and was successfully reunited with my child. DCS involvement in a family’s life is traumatic and stressful for both children and parents, but Mr. Cohn explained every step of the process and worked diligently to achieve a successful outcome. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs a lawyer who will listen and will fight to preserve your precious family!

solving a minor court problem quickly and easily
We were cited for improperly leaving a dog in a car. We went to Ed Cohn and he worked with the court to substitute a 7 hour class for appearing in court, thus simplifying and greatly expediting the remedial process.

He was very competent, and won my case for me. I had an accident, an received a citation and court appearance via telephone. He was there to argue my case for me, and got the charges dismissed. I did have to pay a small fine.

Motivated, Inspired, & Educated
I hired Edward to help guide me in a very tough time. I needed not only advice, but hope and a chance to prove myself. He provided me with so much more than that (besides the outcome I wanted). Along with being a great listener, he kept me in the loop and always informed me with what I needed to know or expect. Most of all, he has a passion for what he does and it really shows. I could not be more grateful for hiring him and I highly recommend him!

Competent and Caring
Edward helped us get legal caregiver status for a friend's daughter while he was incapacitated. Mr. Cohn was professional, competent, and caring. It was a difficult situation for her father, and Mr. Cohn handled it in a way that respected both her father's dignity and our need to have the legal authority to care for the girl.

DV attorney
Worked on my DV case. Was very unresponsive, treated me like less because I hired him through a program for legal assistance at a lower cost. Did not even want to meet before the hearing. He did the bare minimum on my case and jumped straight to plea agreement. Provided absolutely zero support in regards to having a positive outcome. Hired another lawyer for an unrelated case who had to message him just to get him to *try* to work harder on this case. I would say very unprofessional to treat someone less fortunate (at the time) like they don’t matter because they are financially unstable. I did pay promptly so there was zero excuse. There could have been avenues to explore in my defense but he wouldn’t have known or probably cared due to this case handling and not having meetings with me. I only hope this can warn someone before they make the same mistake I did, hire someone else!
