Attorney Profile

Attorney Harriet Newman Cohen, co-founded the New York City law firm of Cohen Rabin Stine Schumann LLP in 2011 after more than 35 years in family law. Since the establishment of the firm, Ms. Cohen has continued to build on her already excellent reputation as one of New York state's leading family law attorneys, having represented a large number of clients in high-profile cases.

Ms. Cohen began her legal career in 1975 after earning her law degree from Brooklyn Law School and her approval to practice law in New York state. Over the years, she has not only founded two highly respected law firms, but she has also served on the New York State Commission on Child Support, thanks to an appointment from Governor Mario Cuomo. In addition, New York City Mayor David Dinkins appointed her to the Foster Care Commission of the City of New York during his term.

After such a long, successful career, it is not a surprise that Ms. Cohen has earned the respect of both her clients and her peers. This respect has resulted in her participation in numerous judicial screening panels, countless television and radio appearances, and a personal profile in The New York Times. In addition, she is a contributor to the New York Law Journal and a regularly requested guest speaker at both legal and professional events.

When outside of the courtroom, Ms. Cohen is active in a number of legal organizations. She is a member of the New York Women's Bar Association, where she is a past president, and the New York City Bar Association, where she is a former member of the Matrimonial Law Committee. Additionally, Ms. Cohen is very active at Barnard College, her alma mater, and she serves on the Board of the Stecher and Horowitz Foundation/New York International Piano Competition.
