“I would like to Thank you for all of your assistance with my financial affairs. With all of your knowledge and guidance regarding my Bankruptcy, you made this transition a lot less stressful. You were great with returning my calls even for the most minute question. I was very unsure of this whole legal process but you really did ease my mind with the way you had everything laid out in a structured plan, including payments, paperwork and filing of my case while I was in your office, on the same day. Not many people can say this experience was a positive one for them but with your assistance I can say my experience with your law firm was extremely positive.”
– Chris O. (2007)
“Most people do not seek out the services of an attorney unless they are beyond the means to help themselves. When I sought help for mounting financial stress due to a divorce case, Rob clearly and articulately helped me understand my options. He did not push for one option over another—he provided the information and then let me decide. I did not feel he was selling or pushing a particular action. I felt he was a competent and respectful professional who treated me as someone who is capable of making informed decisions and could participate with him in decision-making. I felt I could trust his advice. That made all the difference in this highly stressful and chaotic time.”
– Ashley T. (2007)
“My experience working with Rob was excellent to say the least. The business he provided was easy to understand and he walked me through the entire process which was very helpful. His attention to detail was very professional and he also is a very caring person whom I would recommend to anyone.”
– Jen S. (2007)
“I called you in desperation because I needed help with my divorce case that had forced me into bankruptcy. Your obvious expertise, together with good common sense and excellent knowledge of the law, helped me prepare for the battle to come in my case and ultimately lead to an overwhelming victory. In a divorce that lasted nearly 3 years for a marriage that lasted less with no children, one can imagine the complexity of the case. It was immediately following Rob’s deposition of the plaintiff, that the plaintiff’s counsel indicated a willingness to consider a settlement for something other than their original amounts. Shortly after that, the allegations from her and her attorney were completely dropped and they discontinued any further actions. Without Rob’s knowledge and ability to forcefully state his opinions and conclusions in the deposition it is doubtful that this matter would have settled before possibly hundreds of more hours and many more court appearances would have been used. I would highly recommend Rob as an expert to any lawyer, plaintiff or defense needing someone who cares, takes the time to listen to understand the case, and wants to be treated with integrity throughout the process no matter what the situation.”
– Mark S. (2007)
” It has been almost a year now that I came to you with my legal issues. At that time I wanted to try and take on the judicial system by myself and was pretty confident about my abilities. I had read books and documents of terms and conditions and thought this would be enough. I was very skeptical about any type of legal help but knowing what I know now, I am so glad I did not take the legal system on by myself. There were numerous terms and phrases I could not comprehend and you made it much easier to understand what I needed to know. Thanks for everything!”
– Joe T. (2008)
“Thanks so much for all you did for us. Your wonderful!”
– Name Withheld (2008)
“There are simply no words that can express how grateful we are for what you have done for my family. You gave us hope, you gave us peace, and you gave us back our lives and our home!! You were the light in the dark tunnel that our lives had turned into. You took us out and gave us a fresh start! You made us feel so comfortable that all of our insecurities, guilt, and shame disappeared. He helped us to realize our mistakes but not to feel depressed or guilty about them. Throughout the proceedings, objections and motions you stayed in contact with us and answered our questions patiently and were never too busy to speak with us regarding additional concerns that we had. The attention to detail, knowledge of the law and overall work ethic you have is just amazing and we will always be very thankful. I don’t even want to think where we would be right now if it wasn’t for you. I thank God everyday for allowing me to run into you at the courthouse. We want you to know that you will always have a special place in our hearts. Thank you for making the whole Bankruptcy process smooth and easy for us, considering how difficult our case was. Therefore, we highly recommend anyone in debt to consult with Robert Cohen because spending the money to have your case filed professionally, properly and with zero mistakes is worth every penny.”
– John & Tammra F. (2008)
“Rob – THANK YOU so much for all your help! I really really appreciate your hard work and thank you for making me feel comfortable at a difficult time. I will gladly recommend you to other people who may be in need of your services (no offense, but hopefully no one that I know will need a divorce attorney, but then again, I never thought I would either :o)). Again, MANY thanks, hope you had a wonderful holiday and Happy New Year!”
– Brenda Q. (2007)
“Bankruptcy is certainly not what one would describe as a “pleasant” event, but having a conscientious, experienced attorney can lessen the more unpleasant, and unexpected aspects of getting through it. I knew that Rob was asking questions and collecting the necessary materials and answering all the questions I had well in advance of the court date to appear before the Trustee. Once that date arrived, I was sitting in a courtroom where several other attorneys and clients were meeting prior to their Trustee meeting. I was amazed at the conversations I heard going on. These attorneys were asking questions that Rob and I had discussed much earlier in preparatory meetings. I’m not sure I would’ve had all my documentation and information at hand to answer these detailed questions thirty minutes before the hearing. When we were admitted into the courtroom where the Trustee heard the cases, I noticed he asked for further documentation to answer questions that weren’t satisfactorily addressed in the materials presented on several different cases. The respective attorneys would answer that the material would be provided in the next 2 weeks to 2 months. I was naturally worried that when my case was called, I would be confronted with the same request for more information and delay the bankruptcy. But, when we were finally called, the Trustee looked through the paperwork and asked us a couple of questions. He studied the paperwork a little more and that was it. Everyone’s case is unique and I imagine there are always going to be those requests for more information. I can just say, I was very relieved and pleased to have had Rob as my attorney that day knowing that we had worked together to anticipate and provide as much information as possible to facilitate a smooth hearing which resulted in no delays. “

“The law firm of Cohen and Cohen recently helped me navigate my way through the treacherous waters of divorce. I knew from talking with my Cousin who is a lawyer that it is very important to hire a competent lawyer to represent you in the divorce process. From the initial consultation right up until the very end I was provided with sound advice and I always felt comfortable and that things were moving in the right direction. I was able to fully understand the divorce process after one meeting and was kept well informed on what paperwork to file and when, and also what to expect. In addition, Rob was extremely well prepared throughout the divorce process and this was important when it came time to settle. He also provided me with advice about things I never even thought about and he provided a unique perspective which kept me out of harms way throughout the process. I was also pleased with the fact at how available he was and also that he knows how to utilize technology not only to save money, but also in order to engage in effective communication with the other party on matters related to the divorce. He was very quick at responding to any and all inquires that I had throughout the divorce process. Overall I would definitely recommend his law firm. Hiring him to represent me was worth every penny spent. If I ever need to hire a lawyer again for any of the areas that the law firm of Cohen and Cohen specializes in, I know who to contact”

“I’ve worked with Cohen and Cohen for many years in many different capacities from handling my divorce to dealing with a difficult landlady, with results always ending up in my favor, in the best interest of my child, or in the interest of justice. Rob and his team have and continue to be dedicated to my cases, careful and protective of my sensitive information, and have solidly fought for my interests in all facets of the legal system. I have and will continue to recommend Cohen and Cohen to my friends and family who are in need of any legal advice – no matter the size, need papers filed, or unfortunately a divorce or other difficult matter at hand. Why? Because I know they’ll find a law firm rooted in integrity and driven my honorable principals. “
– Kyle (2009)
“Thanks so much for helping me in connection with a debt I did not owe. After over a year of trying to deal with collections agencies on my own (the alleged debt had been “assigned” several times), I realized that I did not have the time or the energy to fight this by myself. It took the experience and wisdom of someone who understands the system to effectively and expeditiously address this matter. After retaining your firm, I have not been contacted again by ANY agencies on this matter. Your fees were very reasonable, you handled the matter promptly and you delivered a great end result. Frankly, I wish I had retained your firm much earlier in the process. If I had done so, I would have saved a lot of time and energy, and the stress of having to fight the agencies by myself. Thank you for helping me successfully fight back on a debt that I truly did not owe. “

[Copy to Cohen & Cohen from a client’s e-mail to the BBB] “I found Robertson Cohen of Cohen and Cohen, PC. Law Firm on your Website last August. I contacted them based a their “A” rating. I want to stress how pleased I am to have found an amazing law firm. Yes, Amazing! I wanted to write a review on how well I was cared for a treated by this Law Firm. I went through a Bankruptcy and was extremely scared and worried about the out come. I looked to the BBB website to find some one that would actually “Care” about what I was going through and understand my situation. I didn’t know where to go, what to ask, or the first thing about looking for a good lawyer… I met with Robertson and we discussed my situation and all of my concerns, I even grilled him on why I needed him and I why I should trust him. His responses were honest and point blank. What he stated he would do for me he did. He gave me guidance, he was up front and honest and told me what I needed to do and how to prepare. He explained every form in detail and never rushed me. I was able to get full understanding of everything that was presented. His staff was great, friendly and even caring. His paralegal Michael was so wonderful and followed up with me over a 4 month time period. Every time I had a question whether I contacted Michael or Robertson they were quick and precise. When it came time for my court date, Robertson was there and showed great sympathy towards me, as to me this stage was so overwhelming. I got the personal care and attention I was in great need of. I honestly would have passed out if Robertson wasn’t there. I was able to ask all my questions and express my concerns with him before my proceedings.
I wanted to express my deepest heartfelt gratitude for everything that everyone at Cohen and Cohen, especially Robertson and Michael did for me. I did not want my experience with this firm to go un-noticed. Thank you for allowing me to express my feelings. “

” I recently completed a bankruptcy with a now defunct law firm. I had a question that needed immediate attention, and was referred to Mr. Rob Cohen by another attorney. I was reluctant to call because I was afraid he would not be too keen on helping me out, because he didn’t handle my bankruptcy. The need for an answer got the best of me, so I called. I was very pleasantly surprised with the response I received. It started with a very kind receptionist who politely listened to my problem and took my information. I was sure she would pass everything along to one of the attorneys and I would hear back from them sometime in the near future. Much to my surprise, she transferred me to Mr. Cohen immediately, right then and there.Mr. Cohen took may call, listened to my question and dilemma, and very professionally went through the options I had available to me. He was very kind, sympathetic, and he was very genuine and compassionate to my situation. He really understood my problem and explained in detail my choices in a a way that I understood completely. He made me feel as if I was his only client. The best part of this story is that he did all of these things out of the kindness of his heart, he charged me nothing. Mr. Rob Cohen is a class act, there is no pretense with this man. He really cares and treated me much better than I could have imagined, considering the sensitivity of my situation and how hard it was for me to talk about it. Thank you Mr. Cohen, you are one of the good guys and I hope sometime in the future I can return the favor.”
– Steve M. (2013)
” Being in the financial position to have to file a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy was something that my wife and I never thought would happen to us. But a failed business investment and huge financial liabilities stemming from the personal guarantees we had made left us with no other reasonable choice. Making the choice to work with Rob Cohen to prepare, file, and follow the bankruptcy to its close has proven to be the best decision we could have made. Rob took away any sense of guilt, embarrassment, or shame during the filing process and focused on getting us the cleanest, fairest settlement possible. I am happy to say that we did receive a settlement deal from the Trustee that was much more in our favor than I ever would have hoped for when we realized we would have to file for bankruptcy protection. Rob’s calm demeanor and comprehensive sense of the “big picture” kept both my wife and I assured and confident. His extensive knowledge of the bankruptcy code also put us at ease anytime a question or concern would arise.Having Cohen & Cohen on our side while experiencing the worst financial crisis of our lives has been instrumental in our rapid recover and ability to regain control of our lives.”

I have never ever experienced what i had to go through this year I almost lost my home and the stress was unbearable Mr. Cohen went out of his way to support me in everything I did not only is the law firm the best ever but i would recommend them to everyone i know. You cannot find attorney’s like this that are willing to give you some kind of piece of mind and do whatever it takes to help you in situations you are not used to handling. Thank you from the bottom of my heart Mr. Cohen I will never forget what you have done for my and my family. “

Please post this on your website or by any other method you select. I want your clients and future clients to know my experience with you and your firm.
Robertson B. (Rob) Cohen was referred to me by one of his peers. I felt “what better a recommendation than that from another attorney”, so I called the law offices of Cohen and Cohen and spoke with Rob, and I am so happy that I did. He immediately understood my situation and was extremely helpful.
In addition to his reassuring and supportive nature, Rob possesses the qualities one hopes for in their attorney; a strong knowledge of the law, good judgment, determination, and integrity. He is a good man, he is an excellent attorney. I felt I was in the best of hands with this fine gentleman, his associate (David Little, who also assisted me) and their responsive and caring office staff.”

Working with Cohen and Cohen epitomizes the phrase, “You get what you pay for.” From the initial consultation I immediately trusted Rob. He was thorough and detail oriented, the review process was conversational rather than Rob running through a list of questions from a sheet of paper. It was obvious that Rob was considering my case from a number of angles while we discussed my situation. When it was time to pay my retainer Rob informed me that he was more expensive than his associates and was comfortable with me engaging them if I wanted to save some money. It was a no-brainer for me, I wanted to work with Rob.
All aspects of the process at every level were handled quickly, professionally and with courtesy. The day of my hearing is where I truly realized that I’d made the correct choice with Cohen and Cohen. We entered the hearing room well before it was our assigned time and I watched another case being heard. It was obvious that the attorney wasn’t prepared nor did they have all of the details in order. This perturbed the trustee and it was obvious he had no intention of leniency as a result of his time being wasted. The attorney and her client left with more work to do and no progress in their case. Because we were ready to go and the previous case took less time than anticipated my case was heard almost an hour prior to the scheduled time. Rob had coached me as to what information to have available for all the questions asked by the trustee – we were prepared and the hearing went smoothly because of Rob’s attention to detail.
