"My wife was charged with DUI and had two more charges against her. Mr. Cohen was able to change the DUI charges to a lesser offense, to reckless driving. Also had one of the charges dropped completely. Mr. Cohen is a miracle worker! A true professional with a huge heart. I am very happy he handled our case!
"Jacob the Warrior: I hired Jacob to handle a very complicated fraud case. He was super knowledgeable, extremely conscientious, comforting but realistic in every aspect. His expertise was effective and impressive. I am very grateful for the understanding, hard work and the best possible outcome of a very difficult case. Thanks!!- Norman D"
"My brother was involved in an accident (in which someone was slightly injured) while driving my car. With an expired driver's license. He was given several citations and was facing possible criminal charges, maybe even prison and/or hefty fines. Jacob Cohen was able to get most of the charges dismissed or changed to a lesser civil charge with a minimal fine. We were extremely happy with his work on our behalf. I also want to mention that he was helpful, courteous, reassuring, and generous with his time and good advice."
"Jacob Cohen uncovered twelve years of coaching and parental alienation which was followed by a post trial judgment stating the above which reunited me with my daughter. After several years of post marriage false accusations of abuse, neglect and a host of others, I was close to throwing in the white flag as I did not have faith that a father stood a chance in family court, Jacob gave me hope. He was very empathetic to what I was going through. He never veered from the most important issues and when it came time for trial, he was a mastermind. By the conclusion of the trial, none of the opposing expert witnesses were found credible by the court, all of the accusations were found to be false and a loving father's rights were regained. Jacob is more than just responsible for restoring my relationship with my daughter. He is and will be a lifelong friend to me and my whole family. A+++"
"Misdemeanor possession of marijuana. Two days after recieving my notice to appear I called Jacob and within one week he already had me enrolled in a revisionary program and was able to have the charges dropped upon completion of the program.

"Thank you to Jacob for helping me get out of a traffic ticket! I appreciate your great communication and help!"

"My son was arrested for a 3rd degree felony grand theft charge. I first consulted with Mr. Cohen I shopped around for some other criminal attorneys in the area. After meeting with 2 other attorneys my gut told me to go with Mr. Cohen he seemed authentic and I wanted a lawyer who I felt had more of a personal connection to his cases. I hired him and we had great success. My son entered the Pre Trial Intervention program the best possible outcome, he successfully completed the program shortly after. Now he can start a new chapter and apply for colleges without putting a Felony Offence on his application. My wife and I thank Mr. Cohen for allowing our son to have a 2nd chance."

Client Review -
"On June 21, 2019, I contacted Mr. Cohen, who responded immediately. I spoke with him about the situation, he was very sympathetic and immediately told me what to do. He hit the floor running reaching out to the authorities etc., as they wanted to speak with my son. On July 24th, 2019, my son turned himself in. He was being arrested and taken into custody due to false allegations. I was referred to Jacob by an attorney that I had worked with and who I highly respected - he spoke very highly of Jacob. The false allegations were scary serious. Jacob was honest as to what we could expect, but due to an incredible Arthur hearing motion Jacob filed, my son was released from prison on August 9, 2019, and the charges were dropped. When he tells you, " I am a good attorney", BELIEVE him. He is not lying. He was very good at being in constant communication, and very patient with me. He understood how nervous and scared we all were... Jacob, if you happen to read this, my family and I will be forever indebted to you. Thank you dear Sir."
Peer Review -
"I endorse this lawyer. Mr. Cohen possess a rare technique that most defense attorney's lack: the ability to skillfully and professional speak with prosecutors in a way that gives him credibility and likeability. This may not sound like a lot, but it enables him get the best results for his clients. He is knowledgeable and always prepared. For example, as a prosecutor in the organized crime unit of the State Attorney's Office, Mr. Cohen was able to convince me about the weakness of my case and further convinced me that I had no choice but to drop the charges against his client. This is a rare thing once a case has been filed by a specialty unit"
