A. Cohen Law Firm

Representing individuals in all phases of matrimonial and family law matters in Supreme and Family Courts, including divorce proceedings (contested and uncontested), child support, custody/visitation, spousal maintenance, pre-nuptials and annulments.

Firm Overview

MATRIMONIAL AND FAMILY LAW

Talk CAN BE CHEAP! That's right - throughout the last decade of representing clients in all phases of matrimonial/family law, the two most common complaints I've heard are: (1) my client charges me for a 10 minute call, and (2) my lawyer doesn't care or listen to what I WANT.

My philosophy is different, plain and simple. I do not bill my clients for telephone discussions...ever! In counseling recently separated spouses or partners, an attorney not only needs to offer effective legal representation but also needs to be there for the client on a personal level. Divorce/separation and support/custody disputes can be very emotional stages in a person's life. I am available to discuss around-the-clock.

I have extensive experience in all phases of matrimonial and family law and am available to discuss your rights right away.

PERSONAL INJURY

Whether you've been injured in an automobile/car accident, slip and fall, or job-related injury, my office has many years of experience representing victims of motor vehicle accidents and getting you the results and compensation you deserve!

Our office also has extensive experience handling respiratory illnesses, such as mesothelioma and/or lung cancer resulting from asbestos exposure.

Unlike many firms in the country, our firm also represents plaintiffs in lawsuits for wrongful death and overdose resulting from prescription painkiller addictions to OxyContin, oxycodone, hydrocodone, Percocet, Vicodin, tramadol and morphine.

BUSINESS LITIGATION

Having represented Fortune 500 companies while working for a top litigation firm in the country, no case is too big for us to handle. Whether your claims involve breach of contract, fraud-based claims, misrepresentation or other business disputes, please call for a free consultation.

Divorce
Our firm has handled numerous divorces - contested and uncontested - from inception to trial. We don't believe in billing for phone discussions. You shouldn't have to pay to find out the status of your case!

Experienced in courts in all counties.
Marriage isn't as blissful as one can imagine; divorce isn't as crippling as one must perceive!

You are not alone in this fight. I always stand in my client's corner and am not afraid of taking positions adverse to a judge's or adversary's beliefs. Your happiness is my goal and I will guide you through this difficult process at all cost.
Child Support
Many clients simply don't know their rights when it comes to child support. We ensure our clients become aware of their rights and placate any uneasiness when it comes to child support obligations. We've represented client's rights in all counties.
Upon retaining my office, I often find that clients are misinformed or uneducated when it comes to support obligations. Talk CAN BE cheap! A client should not be billed for telephone discussions because no one should have to pay their attorneys for a case status or to gain an understanding of the law they are being asked to follow.

The greatest satisfaction I get as an attorney is the close relationships I develop with my clients and the trust established with them.
Family
Custody/visitation is often the most highly contested area in family law because it involves the rights to see your child(ren). We are aware of how delicate this subject can be for some people and are here to discuss the emotions of custody disputes.
We have extensive experience in handling custody and visitation disputes and are available to discuss your rights as a parent, as well as the counseling necessary in the short-term. We take on the toughest cases and are not intimidated by anyone...and neither should you!
Auto Accident
Avi Cohen founded the A. Cohen Law Firm on the principal that injured plaintiffs and their families should have access to the same quality of legal representation that large insurance companies receive from the larger firms.
Injuries you sustain in a car/bus accident can be shocking and overwhelming. A few days after your accident, you may experience pain and decide to pursue a claim against the negligent party. Dealing with the aftermath may be exhausting and stressful. Accident victims often deal with hospitalization, medical treatments, missed time from work, and lost income, often while trying to manage pain and disability from their injuries.

A successful personal injury claim may recover monetary funds for medical expenses, property damage, lost wages, emotional pain and suffering, burial costs, and other financial costs that result from the injury. Typically, a personal injury lawyer is hired to oversee the claim, to let an injured person focus on healing without the stress of dealing with the legal side of the accident. Injury lawyers typically offer a no-cost consultation, so there is no downside to speaking with a lawyer about your potential claim. At A. Cohen Law Firm, P.C., we never charge you for any costs associated with your claim. That means you will never pay any money out of pocket. To the extent we are able to settle or obtain a judgment on your behalf, our compensation is 33% of the total recovery after expenses are deducted.

Please feel free to call and discuss any potential case you may have, where you will receive the personal attention you deserve. We can be reached at (516)341-7770 or via e-mail at: Avi@acohenlawfirm.com.

We are available at all times and work out of Long Island and Queens, Kings (Brooklyn), Bronx, New York and Rockland Counties. House visits are available upon request.
Trucking Accident
Avi Cohen founded the A. Cohen Law Firm on the principal that injured plaintiffs and their families should have access to the same quality of legal representation that large insurance companies receive from the larger firms.
Injuries you sustain in a trucking accident can be shocking and overwhelming. A few days after your accident, you may experience pain and decide to pursue a claim against the negligent party. Dealing with the aftermath may be exhausting and stressful. Accident victims often deal with hospitalization, medical treatments, missed time from work, and lost income, often while trying to manage pain and disability from their injuries.
Asbestos
Mesothelioma is a fatal form of cancer. At Cohen Law Firm, we are aware that the needs of someone suffering from an asbestos-related respiratory disease is time pressing. Our experience on the defense side has prepared us for representing plaintiffs!
Mr. Cohen has represented several asbestos defendants in the past and knows the inside thinking on BOTH sides; by a plaintiff and by the defendants. Armed with that knowledge, Mr. Cohen has conducted nearly 100 depositions all over the country related to asbestos claims. If you are faced with the heart-wrenching problem of watching a loved one suffer from mesothelioma or an asbestos-related disease, contact Mr. Cohen. He is someone who knows the thinking and maneuverings on both sides of the aisle.

How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

From my very first matrimonial and family court cases, I've always felt I can make a difference in my client's lives. Many attorneys simply care about the money. Others love the adversarial component of this field. What matters most to me is that I am able to guide my clients through the best legal representation, but also be there for them when they feel they have no one to talk to. Part of the profession is/should be counseling the client on an emotional and psychological level as well.

I wholeheartedly believe clients should never be worried about getting billed by their attorney for a few minutes conversation related to their case. All of my clients have appreciated that approach and concept and many have referred my name to friends and family as a result. A good name is paramount to anything else.

I would be delighted to help you out in any way that I can!

What experience or education distinguishes your lawyers from others

Having practiced at a top NYC firm with a matrimonial group that is second to none and has represented various celebrities, I have the experience many of my peers are lacking.

What distinguishes your law firm from others?

Talk CAN BE cheap! We don't bill for telephone discussions regarding your case or your well-being (catching up, discussing ways you can rebound and help yourself) should not be billed to you...EVER!!!

Avi Cohen

Born in Florida, raised in Israel and New York, I have learned to adjust to many new situations and deal with various types of people. I can be calm and passive when the situation warrants, or aggressive and assertive when necessary. I don't believe that clients need to hire a "shark" or "pit bull" every time. There are times when that's necessary. But there are also times when such an approach can be counterproductive. Better to assess things as time goes by.

One of my first cases was representing my brother in his divorce proceeding. It was then that I fully recognized the need to separate emotion from logic. Marriage is a contract that when breached should be handled with as little emotion as when a breach of contract occurs.

I am happily married and have three wonderful children: an 11-year old son, and two daughters, 8 and 5 years-old.
