    I endorse Ron Cohen. I have known Ron professionally for more than 20 years and he is my go-to guy when it comes to estate planning and probate matters. Ron is extremely knowledgeable, has a wonderful rapport with clients, and does a fantastic job of expalining complex estate planning concepts and rules to clients. I have referred clients to Ron for 20 years and will continue to do so.
