    At Cohn & Swartzon, we are an aggressive, full service personal injury law firm that represent those who are suffering from serious injuries. We hold the individuals and their insurance companies accountable for the pain, suffering and inconvenience they have caused. We emphasize in all types of serious personal injury matters such as automobile, pedestrian and bicycle accidents, dog maulings, wrongful death, and mesothelioma matters.

I am a Southern California native.  When not practicing law, I enjoy automobile racing, skiing, deep sea fishing, travel and visiting the wine country.  I have a tremendous, very close group of friends from USC with whom I try to spend time with as often as possible.

So Grateful to Jason!
Unfortunate that I was in need of an injury attorney, again, but so thankful for Cohn & Swartzon. This is the second time I have used them and they are the BEST!! Jason and Elva are not only great professionally but personally as well. They went above and beyond for me and they will never know how truly grateful I am to them. They got me medical attention immediately and were always available to answer my questions and reassure me. When it came time to settle my claim they fought for me and got me a great outcome. I would highly recommend them to anyone without hesitation. Thanks again to a great team.

Master Craftsman
Let me pre-qualify myself in that I am a union electrician of 30 plus years. I consider myself in the top 20% of these skilled craftsmen. I wish no less of my legal representation. Tradesmen of a craft know and will make reference to the best in their field. In doing research of lawyers recommending lawyers I found Jason Cohn's name a common recurrence. Involved in a serious motorcycle accident my injuries were severe and extensive. I retained Jason Cohn and his team to represent and guide me, best move I could have done. I received sincere concern, compassion and expert guidance through both medical and legal recommendations. I would put forth that you trust his judgement and follow his lead. If he says..."I think we should", concede and act on his advice. He is an expert in his craft. The final case resolution and compensation was fair and just, no regrets. Jason is an accomplished trial lawyer in the prime of his career. I now understand why he has the esteem of his peers. Utilizing his service will give you peace of mind in knowing you and your case are in good hands.

A Win-Win
The 2 year statute of limitations following my October 2015 MVA was fast approaching and some obvious procrastination, I still had no plan of action for recovering my losses. When our good friends originally referred us to Cohn & Swartzon, I really had no idea what to expect. Honestly, my perception of Personal Injury Law has probably always been a bit jaded. Likely due to the many unflaterring stereotypes of attorneys as they are portrayed in jokes, television news and network/cable programming. Jason Cohn completely changed my point of view. From the very first handshake, Jason immediately comforted me with his genuine warmth, kindness and honesty. His knowledge and understanding of the law and precisely how it pertained to my specific case was really impressive. Jason's expertise and legal advice are second to none. I was well informed and up to date every step of the way. He made me feel safe and confident about demanding reimbursement for my out of pocket expenses. Even with the various strict underinsured motorist coverage limitations that surrounded my case, I still received the fullest possible settlement. Thank you Jason Cohn and Linda Chapman (Senior Paralegal) for your guidance and friendship throughout the entire process.

Cyclist Hit by Car
I was the victim of being hit by a car in Rancho Santa Margarita in 2015. I have spent 2 years in rehab and physical therapy and still continue to have issues. I obtained recommendations from my business associates & interviewed 6 attorneys before selection the Cohn & Swartzon firm. I clearing remember Jason saying "we have a method on how to approach this cases." So I trusted Jason & his team to do what they needed to do! The hardest thing for me was being patient. They were successful in negotiating all parties and received more than we expected. I would recommend Jason & his team to my friends & associates. Robert

Highly Respected Personal Injury Attorney
Personal injury attorneys get a bad rap. But Jason Cohn is respected by other attorneys in the community, myself included. He was recommended by two other attorneys. he handled my personal injury matter with professionalism and always conferred with me about what I wanted. I highly recommend Cohn and Swartzon.

Compassionate legal service
I was pretty shaken up after a head on collision that involved 6 cars. I was thankful that a friend who had just settle his case highly recommanded Jason Cohn's legal service to me. After meeting Jason I felt I could trust him. For the next few months, Jason and his awesome paralegal Linda Chapman walk me through each process ever so gently. When I had doubts, I was encouraged to live my life and heal well and let their legal team do the work. We settle out of court, there was no tension, no struggle instead I receive a fair settlement and the best of it all was that Jason's team served me with compassion and protection. I am very thankful for their graciousness in such a tough profession. I highly recommand Jason Cohn's legal service to anyone who needs compassionate legal help. Thank you Jason, thank you Linda.

Communication is Everything
What I appreciated the most from Jason Cohn and team is that they made this process as painless for me as they could have. First and foremost, the communication from Jason, Lindsey and Renee was always very clear. When there was a new piece of information I needed to know, I was always kept in the loop. From the first point of contact I actually felt that I called the right law firm. From the initial interview on through explaining the entire process, they held my hand treating me with respect. Yes, I mattered. They literally did it all... from securing doctor appointments to rehab appointments to making these medical arrangements under a lien to dealing with my least favorite group: my insurance company. Yes, this is their job, not mine; however, the process was transparent to me. I'm too busy running my own business to have to help them run theirs. That's the beauty. Jason's office is composed of very nice, polite staff - but be aware - they are tigers fighting for what's right for their clients. Remember, the other parties involved, including your own insurance company simply do not give a damn about you! Cohn's experience proves they not only understand this, but have dealt with this a few times before. Actually many times before. I highly recommend hiring this team - and I like few businesses enough to recommend them. Oh yes, I am very satisfied with my final award - I'm often hard to please. If you have doubts, the initial consultation is no charge. Ask questions, like the points I hit above - they have nothing to hide. Call today.

Excellent Attorney!!
I used Cohn and Swartzon in 2014. I cannot stress enough how attentive, professional, compassionate and caring this law firm is!! From the first day I contacted them to the very end, Jason and his entire staff was always available when I had any questions or concerns. They explained everything in great detail, taking their time with me, never rushing me. Anytime I ever called the office, they either came to the phone right then, or called me back the same day. Their communication was simply incredible. They truly care about their clients. Jason has incredible integrity and is an expert in his area of practice. We ended up settling out of court, which was the best outcome for us, so there wasn't a long drawn out court case. The outcome was extremely fair and we are more then pleased with how everything turned out. We could not have asked for a better attorney to represent us. I highly recommend Cohn and Swartzon for anyone that needs a wonderful attorney!!

My Personal Injury Lawsuit
Over my career I have worked with many Attorneys and most have been ok experiences, but in this case I have been absolutely thrilled with the results and the manner in which my case was handled. Absolute integrity, compassion, understanding, extended help and assistance, and great communications. The staff was excellent in every way too! This was a very difficult and painful time in my life and Jason understood that and reacted in a humane and compassionate manner. I could not be more grateful and take pleasure in recommending him to anyone having personal injury issues.

Fantastic service
We were passengers in a friend's car, and were hit by an uninsured motorist, resulting in a weeks stay in the hospital. After discharge, came the task of handling the insurance claims and paying the medical bills which we attempted to do ourselves. Jason Cohn came to the rescue. It took two years for the full settlement, but all of that time he and his staff were in contact with us keeping us informed in a very friendly and professional manner. We would highly recommend his firm. Thank you, Jason and staff. Shirley & Ed Morine

Excellent service
After my wife was in a accident in 2010. We contacted Mr. Cohn. He his staff were very sympathetic and made it a priority to find care for my wife's recovery from her pain and discomfort from the accident that totaled our 2007 vehicle. In our initial consulation, I recall after our introductions, Jason's first words to my wife and I were "First, we have to make sure your wife is going to get the proper care she needs to make her feel better". After quickly finding exceptional care for my wife. Jason quickly went to work to handle the ENTIRE case and work with the insurance companies to get us a replacement vehicle. Jason and his staff kept us up to date on the progress with the other parties insurance company and asked frequently in E-mails and phone calls how my wife was feeling and if she was getting better. I can say, that going through an accident is taxing enough for ones family to go through. The ordeal facing you (post accident) on what to do to get medical care and therapy for the person in the accident, followed by finding a new car will stress you out all on it's own. Jason and his staff are top notch. They worked deligently for us to settle our case with the other party and their insurance company. I would recommend this firm to anyone who needs not JUST any Attorney. But, a Attorney who really wants what's best for his clients. Add in a great and knowledgeable staff to get you through it all, to help everyone feel better from the accident and put it behind you. Now that's a Law Firm! T. R. Highland, CA
