Law Office of Lauren Cohen

Law Office of Lauren Cohen

Our office provides caring, compassionate and professional services to people who are facing life's stressful times; divorce, child custody and visitation matters and bankruptcy. Let us help you.

Firm Overview

I am Lauren S. Cohen, a dedicated, compassionate attorney who has been helping New Yorkers deal effectively with pivotal legal concerns for more than 30 years. Clients who visit my offices in Johnson City and Binghamton, NY, receive personally attentive guidance and strategic representation focused on protection of their interests and futures.

I have lived in Central New York for most of my adult life, attending SUNY-Binghamton and Syracuse University for college and law school, respectively. This gives me an understanding of the values of my clients and an awareness of how their problems may affect their lives.

My experience covers a vast spectrum of divorce cases at all levels of conflict and complexity, as well as family law matters after and outside of divorce. In addition, I am adept at helping people make solid, informed decisions about debt relief and complete all the steps required to file Chapter 7 bankruptcy.

*** My services are provided on a "FLAT FEE" basis. You will know exactly how much your legal matter will cost you right from the beginning without the worry of unknown large potential fees and hourly rates often used by other attorneys.

Because of this, we regret that we are unable to offer free representation. We are happy to discuss our fee structure with prospective clients.

PLEASE NOTE: WE DO NOT OFFER FREE MATRIMONIAL OR FAMILY COURT CONSULTATIONS. If we are retained at the consultation, the consultation fee is applied to the Flat Fee for services.

Bankruptcy consultations are free.

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

Our philosophy is to provide our clients with "Compassionate, Caring and Professional representation". Because we limit our practice to turbulent times in people's lives we understand the need of our clients to have an attorney who understands the turmoil and upset they are experiencing, as well as the legal needs they have. We understand the need to be accessible and the importance of communication. Our office makes every effort to respond to client's phone calls and e-mails the same day and in all cases, within 24 hours. We are there for you.

What distinguishes your law firm from others?

We are different from other law firms in several respects.

First, we are firmly committed to making our clients feel that both they and their matter are important to us by making it a firm policy that all telephone calls and e-mails are responded to within 24 hours, if not the same day. Calls and e-mails received during a weekend or holiday are returned within 24 hours of our receipt of those messages on Monday or the day following the holiday.

Second, we recognize that Matrimonial and Family Law issues bring not only concerns about the case, but about how to pay for representation. To ease the financial concerns of our clients, we offer FLAT FEE representation. From the day they retain us, our clients know the exact cost of representation from the beginning of the case to completion. There are no surprises, no hourly rates, no hesitancy about phoning us because of additional hourly charges and no concerns about exorbitant attorney's fees at the end of a case. We also offer payment arrangements so that the case can begin even if the client doesn't have the total flat fee up front.

At all times, we strive to live up to our motto of "Compassionate, Caring and Professional" representation of our clients.

I focus on a limited area of practice in order to insure that my clients receive the very best representation in those areas.
