Great job!
After being rear ended by a semi truck, we went with Saar's services. Great decision! Got great medical care that was needed. Then the commercial insurance broker really played hard ball, buy taking Saar's suggestion to file worked out great in the long run. Ending with a fair settlement I was happy with. Took a year, but glad we waited it out. Thanks again!

Saar and his team did a great job from the day I called to final steps of the settlement. If you are ever injured and need help. Do not hesitate to call Saar and his team that you can count on.

My experience with Cohen and Swartzon was seamless. I found them on the internet on the day of my accident. I was a little reluctant because I did not know of a competent attorney, and so I took my chances. I was able to speak with Tiffany Hibbard, the firm's paralegal, immediately. She was kind, compassionate, and professional. I got in right away. I met with Saar and Tiffany, who referred me to local medical treatment. They were great at following up to ensure my treatment was going well. Saar fought hard to get me the best settlement possible, which he did. Without hesitation, I would recommend anyone to Cohen and Swartzon.

Awesome law firm!
Awesome lawyers and law firm! When I first contacted them, their response was immediate and I was treated for my injuries the following day. All of my doctor offices were located close to home, which was a plus. Very considerate on their part and I am overall very satisfied with the way my case was represented!

Amazing experience
I came to Saar after a car accident happened and left me in a tough position with a couple broken bones. Saar and Linda’s main priority was to get me the medical help I needed first and after my surgeries, figure out the rest. I left every single thing in Linda and Saar’s hands. Linda is Saar’s amazing paralegal! They took care of everything and would let me know when they needed something from me. The communication was always super good and they made everything very easy for me. My case was extremely complex and confusing and Linda and Saar ended up pulling off more than I thought was possible. I am so grateful I found this firm and I ended up with Saar and Linda. They are an amazing team!! I will forever be grateful for these two.

Cared for by the best!
Last August, while out for my daily morning walk, I was suddenly and unexpectedly attacked by a pit bull on a leash! I went to the emergency room and received treatment for scraps and deep puncture wounds to by jawline and neck. When I could finally breathe again, I went online to warn our local community about this now declared "dangerous" dog. Saar reached out to me, not for business but with compassion and expertise. I knew I had medical bills that I should not be responsible for and since the owner made no effort to either apologize nor assume financial responsibility I chose to work with Saar and his wonderful paralegal Linda. Not only did they take the time to walk me through my options, they were professional, experienced and knowledgeable and they cared deeply how I was healing and my emotional state of being. I am so blessed to have been led to Saar and Linda and I can't recommend them enough. Emails were answered promptly, updates given frequently and I truly felt they were fighting for me from start to finish. Not having much experience with legal issues, I know I was in the best hands with this team. I can't thank them enough and I hope they know how important they were in my recovery! Sincerely!

Fireworks on the 4th of July. Not the good kind.
My wife and I had just left a show on the 4th of July 2016. We were both in good spirits driving home, reminiscing about the show when out of nowhere we were slammed from behind by another car. Our car spun at least 6 times before it came to a stop and bystanders called out to us to see if were ok. Both of us were bruised and achy. I felt something wet on my face, which ended up being blood. It was not possible to get out the driver's side, so after my wife was helped out of the vehicle I was helped next. The vehicle that hit us from behind was driving in excess of 90 mph. The driver was intoxicated. He didn't have insurance. He wasn't the registered owner of the vehicle. We were told that he too would need medical attention, but then he would be taken off to jail. An ambulance arrived. My wife complained about neck pain, so she was placed on a gurney and carried into the ambulance. I was having difficulty straightening my leg, so it was better for me to be walked into the ambulance where I sat behind my wife and we were taken to the hospital. Not only were we both hurting. We were out a car. My wife and I have medical insurance and I have car insurance, but we were genuinely concerned about how this all was going to work out. A good friend of mine recommended the law firm of Cohn & Swartzon. My wife and I met with Saar Swartzon and he assured us that we had a good case. * He got us in touch with a local Physical Therapist, Chiropractor and Pain Management Doctor to deal with our injuries. * He convinced my auto insurance company to reimburse me much more than what I expected for my lost vehicle considering its year and mileage. * The demand he made of my insurance company for both me and my wife was more than we ever expected. We are extremely grateful for everything that Saar and Elva did for us and we recommend their services to anyone that ends up in a situation much like ours. Thanks Saar! Thanks Elva! Stu and Chanel

Great attorney
I'm extremely grateful to Mr. Swartzon for helping me win my accident case. I reached out to Cohn & Swartzon immediately after being referred. Upon our initial meeting, Mr. Swartzon eased my worries and assured me the primary focus was for me to heal and feel better, which is exactly what I was able to do. Mr. Swartzon and his team were responsive through the entire process and essentially took care of everything so I didn’t have to worry about a thing. A special kudos to Linda Chapman who handled my case with great professionalism and efficiency. I would strongly recommend Cohn & Swartzon!

Sarr and his team, Megan and Dawn were incredible. They were fantastic in all aspects of handling my accident. I am amazed at how they work with you step by step and just for you. They diligently worked on my case and at the same time I received great care. I couldn't have been more pleased with how they handled my case and my settlement was beyond what I ever expected. Thank you Sarr, Megan and Dawn for my settlement. I am beyond great full!

Perfecta
Mr. Swartzon and staff handled my claim not only against the Insurance company but then against the government based medical provider who had a lien on my claim. I truly felted and discerned hiring Saar Swartzon initially because of his acts of compassion and empathy to my cause and then because of his straight forwardness and truthfulness and not sugar coating the situation. Mr. Swartzon was able to get me a little over the expected 1/3 % of the settlement when in reality the medical insurance lien would have taken 75% of the entire amount.

Saar Will Take Care Of You
After being in two car accidents within a 6 month period, both times I went to Saar Swartzon and his team and I could not be happier. I had never been in a car accident before nor had I ever used a Personal Injury Attorney, however, I am very glad that I decided to collaborate with Saar to get through the process. He communicates everything very clearly, sets proper expectations, and knows what he is doing - there are no hidden gimmicks with Saar, he is very transparent. THIS IS NOT A PAID REVIEW, JUST A VERY SATISFIED CLIENT. If you are even considering using an attorney for a personal injury incident, at least explain your incident to Saar and learn about how he can help.

Excellent perseverance
Saar and his firm were organized and a pleasure to work with throughout a difficult process. They worked hard for me, and despite the fact that my case took several months/years, they were dedicated to the end. I would definitely hire them again.

Fantastic Lawyer
After being involved in an auto accident I found myself needing an attorney. Luckily I found Saar Swartzon, he is a very genuine person and actually cares about his clients and their well being and certainly not the stereotypical idea of what a lot of people think of attorneys. Saar fought for me for a long time and never gave up or caved into the opposing insurance companies claims that they were not responsible for my injuries. I highly recommend Saar to anybody that is looking for a great attorney that will fight for you and what is right. Saar was always made himself available for my questions and kept me up to date on the progress of my case. After a long battle with the opposing insurance company, I received what I felt to be a fair settlement. If you ever need an attorney, Saar Swartzon is the one to call. Thank you Saar for all your help.

Saar is an excellent attorney
I was involved in an auto accident earlier this year (2014). I was referred to Saar Swartzon at Cohn & Swartzon, A.P.C.. Saar and his entire staff did an excellent job in taking care of me and my case. I received a "max" settlement thanks to Saar Swartzon and his staff's hard work. Saar is very friendly and easy to communicate with. He takes the time to listen to what you have to say before giving you his response if any is due. He is both very professional as well as very courteous. One might expect to be intimidated by an attorney, but not with Saar. He's a great guy and does excellent work!

Excellent Attorney!!
I used Cohn and Swartzon in 2014. My first contact was with Saar. He took his time with me, listening to everything I had to say. I could tell he truly cares about his clients. He never rushed me, no matter how many phone calls I made to him. He was always available to answer my questions and concerns. I could tell Saar is an expert in his field and I felt completely comfortable that I came to the right law firm. When I contacted Cohn and Swartzon, I had no idea how the process was going to go since I wasn't so sure about attorneys, but I have complete faith in this law firm. They went above and beyond what I thought they would. Saar has incredible integrity, compassion, understanding and of course perfect communication, which I feel all of these are extremely important qualities to have. I would recommend Saar and his law firm to anyone needing an attorney in the area that he practices in. We settled out of court, which worked out perfect for us and I knew Saar fought for my rights and had my best interest at heart thru the entire process. Thank you Saar for everything!!

We Won!! Amazing Lawyer!
I was in a car accident and was referred to Saar Swartzon. I will be forever grateful, he was incredible from start to finish! He spent time with me explaining the process and what would happen. He and his staff kept me informed the whole way and even found me great Dr's. When it was time for court, he prepared a comprehensive brief and we won the case. I can't recommend Cohn and Swartzon highly enough. Thank you so much!

I Won My Case!! Thank You
I hired Cohn and Swartzon to represent me in my accident case. The Lawyer who met with me told me everything that he was going to do and how long it was going to take and what to expect. They kept in close contact with me throughout the process and I was informed of every development in the case. Everytime i called, my questions were answered. I am very pleased with the settlement they recovered from the insurance company. I recommend Cohn and Swartzon to anyone who is considering hiring an accident attorney
