A top-rated trial attorney with more than six years of legal experience, Mr. Cohen focuses his practice primarily on handling class actions and mass torts for a diverse range of clients throughout the state and across the country. He has achieved notable success handling matters involving whistleblower/qui tam claims, employment discrimination and harassment, personal injury and product liability claims, public policy issues, commercial disputes, and other complex matters.

    Before entering the legal profession, Mr. Cohen led a successful career spanning more than 35 years in the publishing industry. He served as an executive at both Time and Scholastic, and he was the CEO of several internet-based start-ups.

    Prior to becoming an attorney, Mr. Cohen sat on several juries to verdict, and he gained a unique insight into how jurors respond to the evidence presented. Drawing upon his publication background, he wrote extensively on the subject and even contributed to a major treatise published by Professor Neil Vidmar of Duke Law School.

    Mr. Cohen attended the United States Naval Academy from 1969 to 1972 before attending Brown University, where he earned his Bachelor of Arts in 1975. Following his successful publishing career, he attended New York Law School, where he served with the school's Moot Court.
