Above and beyond attorney. Truly 5 star
Robert Cohon represented me in a personal injury case a couple years ago. Robert went out of his way (making on-site visits to see how it occured) to understand the case before he accepted it as a case. Most others just blew me off. The settlement he obtained for me was life changing for me. I should have reviewed him a long time ago, but I was sitting here appreciating the fruits of his efforts. Thank you Robert!

Highly Recommend
Robert Cohon represented me in a personal injury case. My having had no prior experience with the legal system, Robert patiently walked me through the case and the complex parts of it. I feel his professional approach and strong knowledge of personal injury law is what earned me a favorable resolution. He carefully listened to the circumstances, did thorough research, and responded in a timely manner with the involved parties. He was an excellent communicator at all times. When we came to the mediation portion of the case, he proved to be an excellent negotiator. Given the stressful nature of legal proceedings, I appreciated his low-key demeanor and unflappable confidence and his utmost courtesy. I feel fortunate to have had his representation.

Robert is the best go get her!!! He gets the job done NOW
I absolutely felt 100% secure and comfortable with Robert Cohon!!! I met him at the sight where insident accured and he told me he was sure he could help. I was pretty down on what happened to me at my apartment! Mr Cohon stayed possitive and really was a go get her type!!l He was able to get me what I deserved without a doubt and I am very pleased with the outcome and would refer him to anybody I run across. He always kept in constant contact with me and always followed through I would recommend him to anyone.

Better Than I Had Hoped
In December 2012 I had a terrible fall with major injuries to both right and left legs. While recovering from the necessary surgeries, I decided to file claims against a major utility company and the city where the fall occurred, since the hazardous condition which resulted in my injuries could have been prevented. From our initial meeting, Mr. Cohon's kindness, compassion, and honesty never wavered. He warned me that the outcome could not be guaranteed, and that the odds were against us, but he believed in my cause, and his perseverance inspired me to stay the course with him, even as months became years. Eventually, he was able to bring our case to a negotiated settlement, vindicating my decision to put my trust and confidence in him. I hope I never again need a personal injury lawyer, but if I ever do, I will call on him again.

Awesome Attorney!!!
I had contacted several attorneys asking them to take on my case. They wouldn't even give me the time of day. Not only did Mr Cohen take my case but he made me feel that I was in good hands. He made me feel comfortable and I instinctively trusted him ( a rare feeling when dealing with lawyers). I am glad to report that my trust wasn't misguided. Not only did he win everything I ask for but he actually exceeded it. If you're looking to hire a personal injury attorney it's my honest belief that you couldn't find a better one than Robert Cohen. I'm a disabled person and he never made me inferior in any way. He treated me exactly as he would any other person. If you're a disabled person, this is the attorney for you! This man is a kind, sensitive no nonsense attorney. I highly recommend him.

Pesonal Injury case
Robert was straight forward in his approach to my case. He did not try and fill my head with unrealistic expectations and kept me firmly grounded throughout the case process. I am very happy with his professionalism and courtesy. Prompt in returning calls and emails.

Very Helpful
I called Mr. Cohon's office looking for advising regarding a recent auto accident. He promptly returned my call personally, and spent nearly an hour of his time walking me through every single step of my claim, providing me with all of the information I needed to proceed - even though we determined that I did not need a lawyer. He is a courteous professional who goes the extra mile, and I would highly recommend his practice.

Very Satisfied
When I first contacted Robert M. Cohon's office to handle my injury case I did not have high expectations of success in arriving at a fair compensation from the facility that was responsible for my injury. I asked Mr. Cohon to represent me because I had heard that he is very good. Now that a satisfactory settlement has been reached, I am thankful that I made the right decision, when I decided to seek the help of Robert Cohon, about my case. He represented my case with knowledge, thorough investigation, tirelessness and professionalism. He was empathetic and supportive throughout the negotiations . He was a very strong advocate in dealing with complexities that arose. Mr Cohon never wavered in his support of my cause. Outstanding and remarkable to say the least. advocate in dealing with complexities that arose. Mr Cohon never wavered in his support of my cause. He insured that I got the maximum settlement possible. Outstanding and remarkable to say the least. I highly recommend, Robert Cohon for any legal issues you may face.,
