I am so incredibly grateful to have found Josh Cohen at an absolutely terrifying and horrible time in my life. Josh was my Angel. After a devastating fall down a staircase that was probably two inches away from breaking my neck and leaving me dead or paralyzed - but thankfully didn't - Josh took every one of my phone calls and listened to each and every concern, sometimes returning messages well after hours, making sure I that was seen by top-notch specialists and that I got the best medical care available without spending a dime of my own money, regardless of the fact that I had severely limited health insurance. He was more than an attorney - he was a caring, supportive protector and friend. After two years of physical therapy and pain management, I reached a point where I realized there was no more improvement to be made. Though I would in a heartbeat give back every dime if I could undo the accident and go back to the condition I was in before it happened, I am very happy with the settlement that Josh was able to negotiate for me. He gave me strength and confidence during a time when I was profoundly injured and vulnerable and made me feel like I had some control over my situation. I hope to never require the services of a personal injury attorney again, but if - God forbid - I or anyone I love every does, Josh will absolutely be the one I call.

I got doored while cycling last year, and Joshua was my first and only call. He and his staff walked me through the process of maximizing our case, took care of everything, and got results, period. Highly recommended, especially for anything bike related!

When my husband was knocked off his bicycle and badly hurt we wanted a really good attorney to help us get a fair and just settlement from the insurance company. I'm an attorney myself and asked around to find out who's the best in L.A. We got some referrals and I went and met some of them but once I met Josh I knew we'd found the prefect attorney for our case. Not only is he a terrific attorney he's also a cyclist himself and a keen advocate for cyclists so he fully understand and supports cyclists, but he's also a champion of a man. One of the best.
Josh took our case and worked diligently and thoroughly to get us the settlement we deserved. Not only did he meet our every expectation of what a great lawyer should be, he was also endlessly patient in answering all our questions and extremely supportive and respectful of us a clients.
I could say he was the silver lining in the black cloud of a bad accident but that would be selling him way short. He's a marvelous man, a great attorney and if you've had an accident I have zero reservations about recommending him.

Josh is one of the sharpest attorneys I know. We trained together years ago on trial matters and he was by far one of the most effective at reaching juries I've watched. Since then Josh has helped countless clients with personal injury matters and is a particular expert on bicycle injury claims. In matters where the jury's perception of the client counts - like personal injury - you need to have someone like Josh on your side who will connect with and persuade the jury to fully compensate your client for the harm they've suffered.
