This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
This means the attorney did something wrong and could have temporarily lost his or her license to practice law. Instead the Hearing Board placed the suspension on hold, monitoring the attorney’s behavior for a period of time.
Matthew’s comment: “The discipline occurred when first licensed and practicing Intellectual Property Law. Afterward, I have spent many years being properly trained as a criminal defense attorney and have been successfully practicing criminal defense for more than five years.”

I called Matthew on a Saturday morning following a DUI charge on a Friday evening. He immediately took control, removed my fear helping me through this dreadful time. My BAC, first offense was over .20. He not only won my DMV hearing with no condition and no restriction on my license. He was able to secure a reduced court charge. My case lasted 8 months. I can't imagine getting through this without Matthews support. He is amazing. he helped me stay calm, I trusted him completely and he delivered beyond anything I imagined. His fees are very reasonable and he honestly is worth his weight in gold. Thank you Matthew.

I hired Matthew Cohen because of his great reviews, and was not disappointed. He worked hard and was able to get me a better deal. I would recommend him to anyone seeking representation, as he made the process easy and answered all of my questions.

The area of immigration law, in which I practice, and criminal defense, in which Mr. Cohen practices often intersect and I have been fortunate to work with Mr. Cohen on several cases. He has always proven to be a diligent, thoughtful, and intelligent advocate for his clients and I endorse him and his work without reservation.
