Testimonials

We can't thank you enough for all that you have done for our family! We believe that our son was extremely fortunate to have you represent him again this year in yet another long drawn out custody battle for his son! Thank you for your understanding, professionalism, and responsiveness; you gave us hope and confidence throughout this ordeal. From the day we met in your office to discuss the case, you worked tirelessly so that our son was able to continue joint custody.

We were also very lucky to have you represent our son in his divorce five years ago; you met with us and pulled it all together in a matter of days and had a joint custody order within weeks. You saw that he was telling the truth and you didn't let anyone take advantage of him, always taking the time to explain everything to us. You have treated us with kindness and compassion, even when our emotions were running high. You were invaluable to the positive outcome!

We believe everyone needs a good attorney who specializes in Family Law for a custody or divorce battle, just like an orthopedic surgeon is needed for a knee replacement. We've been in court enough over the years to see the difference in attorneys and Lauren you are the best Family Law attorney we've seen!

I don't know what we would have done without you; your expertise and experience is above and beyond. You are a quiet force to be reckoned with and stand your ground for sure. I would highly recommend your law firm to anyone with a divorce or custody issue. Thank you for everything from the bottom of my heart!

From the moment I sat down with Ms. Cohen, as a scared new mother, I knew she was the way to go. Lauren Cohen is highly knowledgeable and educated on family law. She was always solicitous about the best interests and welfare for my son. Ms. Cohen has represented me for 17 months, and throughout that time she has worked timelessly on our case while carrying a full workload. Ms. Cohen has promptly returned every panicked phone call, email, and question with sensible recommendations. I have been deeply impressed with Ms. Cohen's ability to understand my wishes and point of view, while still encouraging me to consider solutions most suitable for my situation. Ms. Cohen is dedicated to her work, and exceeded all expectations. I truly believe most lawyers would have treated my case like another "paper in the stack," but Ms. Cohen showed empathy, and a genuine desire to seek a positive outcome for my son and I. Our family is forever grateful to have her in our corner. It is truly because of Ms.Cohen, that after the hardest fight of a mother's life, I now see the brightest future for my son. Thank you will never cover all she has done. I recommend Ms. Cohen to anyone who wants a lawyer who will fight for you, fight for what is ethically right, and stand in your corner.

Although I've been recognized by my peers in the local legal community, it's the positive experiences of my clients that truly speak to level of service I strive to bring to each case I handle.

I wanted to take a moment and thank you for your recent assistance in getting my case resolved quickly and in my favor. You personally returned my initial phone call the same day. You listened to my family circumstances and accommodated my request for a sit down personal meeting the very next day. We met in your Johnson City Office. You were professional as well as "down to earth" in your conversations with me. After intently listening to my story you explained exactly what you would be doing and how we would do it. Your many years of experience in family law matters along with your knowledge of the local magistrates was clearly helpful in the quick resolution of my case. In less than a week my case was resolved. I never thought it would happen that fast. You kept me informed, even giving me your cell phone number to ensure we could stay in contact with each other.

I would highly recommend Lauren Cohen to anyone needing an attorney for family matters. Please use my above thoughts and accolades for your service in any manner that would be helpful to you. I can't thank you enough

I retained Lauren Cohen as my lawyer in a family court matter. I was pleased with the zealous work she did for me and impressed with the great deal of knowledge that she holds in the area of family law. I certainly will hire her again, if necessary, and recommend her to friends. She does a great job and thanks again Lauren.

"I just wanted to say thanks for how responsive you have been to calls and emails throughout this bankruptcy process. I have dealt with other lawyers in other matters and this is not usually the case-many times you will wait many days or weeks to hear back from them.

When you are not available you clearly communicate that as well.

Lauren Cohen did an outstanding job representing me during my divorce. She reviewed all options with me, and presented me with the pros and cons of each. She was always professional , and handled negotiations extremely well. She always responded to me in a timely manner and she continued to look at different options up to the day before we went to court. Because of her diligence, just a few days before my court date, she found something that made a significant difference in the outcome of my case. I am very satisfied with the services she provided me, and would highly recommend her if you find yourself needing representation during a divorce.

To whom it may concern

I hired Ms. Cohen to handle a bankruptcy for me and then to handle my divorce. She was fantastic. I was nervous and scared and she was just what her website said, competent, caring and professional. She was knowledgeable in both areas of law and best of all, she promptly returned every phone call and email I sent her. With my previous lawyer I'd wait a week or more to hear back from them. Ms. Cohen always responded within 24 hours.

I would highly recommend her. I was referred to her by a colleague of mine who had used her and been very happy also.

When you need a lawyer you need a good lawyer. You need an experienced attorney that is savvy. You don't want someone who is just there to go through the legal paperwork but a strategist that will hear your case, give you the personalized representation that you need, and be there fighting in the trenches with you.

Make no mistake about it, when it is time to get a lawyer it's because you are about to be in for the struggle of your life. I know, I retained Lauren Cohen for a complex divorce and a long custody fight. As a client, and importantly as a father trying to make sure I was as much a part of my daughter's life as possible, hiring Lauren Cohen was the best decision I made, and it will be one of the best decisions you can make.

While some results are not typical, Lauren is not a typical lawyer. She cares about your case, she is sensitive to your financial circumstances, and in trial she is so aggressive that you will be happy she is your lawyer and not the lawyer you have to face.

I highly recommend sitting down immediately with Lauren Cohen. Don't wait, and don't waste money on other attorneys that will tell you what you want to hear. This is the lawyer that will tell you what you need to know and absolutely help you sort out this complicated time in your life.

Lauren S. Cohen is a caring but tough person. She listens and gets the job done. Lauren knows the law and she knows just when she needs to be tough. I have had Lauren as my lawyer for over 16 years and I would highly recommend her to anyone who needs a divorce lawyer or a family court lawyer. I have always put my trust in her and she's gotten the job done.

Lauren,

Thank you, thank you so much for all that you have done for me. I got the final papers today and I cannot tell you how happy I am right now.

You have been wonderful. You always returned my calls whenever I called and guided me through this whole process. I couldn't have gotten through this tough time if I didn't have such an understanding person to help me.

Thank you for being just an awesome person.

Sincerely,

Joan M.
