I have been practicing in the DC Metropolitan area for nearly 15 years and have learned that the most important thing I can do for my client is listen. Far too often I hear people complain that they simply can’t reach their attorney and I find that unacceptable. I pride myself on being available to my clients whether via phone, email or in person. I never forget that I am here to serve my client, and that includes not just providing sound legal advice and guidance. Especially in Family Law, it is understanding how they got here, what they need, what their children need and there is only one way to come to this understanding: deep involved conversation with my clients.

At Cohen and Hertz, PC we strive to provide personal service to our clients. You will never find yourself handed off to a law clerk or new associate to have your concerns addressed. You will always speak with a lawyer, and to take that a step further, a lawyer whom you have a personal relationship. Whatever the reason is you need to come to to see me, it is most likely a life changing matter on some level. My job is to ensure you come out of this matter in the best possible light, having been given the most competent, personal attention I can provide.
