  • After speaking to a number of attorneys who told me there was nothing they could do I began to think my case was hopeless. That is until we met the attorneys at Cohen Forman Barone, LLP...

    “I have been a lawful permanent resident for almost twenty years, and was shocked when immigration authorities took me from my home and placed me in a detention facility because of an old drug conviction. After speaking to a number of attorneys who told me there was nothing they could do I began to think my case was hopeless. That is until we met the attorneys at Cohen Forman Barone, LLP who were able to reopen my old drug case and vacate the conviction. I was let out of custody and thanks to them have a new lease on life and am now working toward my citizenship.”

  • Trusted by owners of fortune 500 companies and feared by the NYC's top prosecutors, Mr. Cohen is simply the best at what he does.

    “Mr. Cohen takes the art of criminal defense to a new level. It is rare to find an attorney with the legal skills necessary to defeat the top Federal and State prosecutors in NYC. It is perhaps even more difficult to find a trial attorney with communicative and people skills necessary to negotiate a favorable plea deal for a client. David J. Cohen is a unique criminal lawyer who possesses both of these skills and in great abundance. Trusted by owners of fortune 500 companies and feared by the NYC's top prosecutors, Mr. Cohen is simply the best at what he does.”

  • David Cohen and his team did everything possible to defend me

    ““I owe my life to that man. David Cohen and his team did everything possible to defend me. Right from the beginning he promised me that he was the best man to protect me and over our three years together he never gave me any reason to doubt that. Thank you.””

  • He never showed doubt and I am so glad I kept fighting till the end.

    “I met David at the worst time in my life. A thought that I am a 36-year-old professional and intelligent woman would find myself at central booking and Rikers has never crossed my mind. I taught at a private daycare. The incident involved me and a child under my supervision. David was my anchor during the 14 months of dealing with my felony and misdemeanor charges. He empowered me with his knowledge and confidence and made me realize how strong I was. David was in court with me every month during my pretrial and trial. He seemed to know every judge and prosecutor! He is truly knowledgeable of the system and its ways. When I hired David to represent me he said that I became his family. It, indeed, felt like family. He answered every question, every call, text, and email. Dave held my hand and let me be emotional. Although I was very overwhelmed, he managed to explain my options in a way that I could comprehend. I felt like I a have a choice to fight or not to fight, accept the plea or not, etc. He never showed doubt and I am so glad I kept fighting till the end. My case is sealed! I am a free woman! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you dear David.”

  • When we called Cohen Forman Barone, LLP they invited us to come right to their office.

    “When we got the call about my brother’s arrest I thought my pops was gonna have a heart attack. Nobody in our family had ever been in trouble with the police and we thought that stuff only happened to other families. We called law firms from all over the internet who made us feel like they were doing us a favor to even take our call. When we called Cohen Forman Barone, LLP they invited us to come right to their office. Me, my mom and dad went to their office and met with an experienced criminal attorney for over an hour at no charge. They answered all our questions and made my parents extremely comfortable. They got my brother out of jail that same day. Cannot thank them enough.”

  • If it wasn’t for them my life would have forever been turned upside down.

    “A few years ago I was arrested for allegedly being part of a drug trafficking conspiracy. The judge set over $100,000 bail, which I could not afford and I fought the case from inside jail. My public defender told me that he he could get me a great deal, which would get me out of jail. I explained to him that I did not want to plead guilty to something I did not do. I also explained that I was a lawful permanent resident and did not want to jeopardize my legal status in the U.S. He told me that if I went to trial I would wind up serving a significant amount of time in jail and would be deported, but if I pled to this “great deal” I would be released from jail and did not have anything to worry about with immigration because I was here legally. I wound up accepting the plea deal just so I could move forward with my life. This was not to be. Immigration authorities picked me up a few years later and I was ordered deported for having been convicted of an Aggravated Felony. After countless attorneys told me my case was hopeless, I hired Cohen Forman Barone, LLP who wound up winning a motion to vacate my conviction. My deportation order was lifted, my green card returned to me, and I was released from custody. To this day I am so grateful to the attorneys at Cohen Forman Barone, LLP who never gave up on my case and were willing to fight to the bitter end, all while being understanding of my limited financial resources. If it wasn’t for them my life would have forever been turned upside down.”

  • Their tireless effort and belief in my innocence empowered me.

    “I was in jail at the darkest time in my life and facing a possible life sentence for a crime I didn’t commit. My lawyer told me I should accept a deal so I could go home to my family….. in 7 years. I was confused, depressed and scared when I fired my attorney and let the attorneys at Cohen Forman Barone, LLP handle my case. Their tireless effort and belief in my innocence empowered me. They met with me, kept me informed about my case and never stopped fighting for me. Within a few months they got all of the most serious charges dismissed and I was free.”

  • When it’s time for me to apply for my citizenship, there is no doubt that I will be hiring Cohen Forman Barone, LLP to handle the process.

    “My wife and I retained Cohen Forman Barone, LLP to handle our marriage based green card petition. Not only are their prices reasonable, but they truly do go above and beyond in their representation. While many friends of ours who have gone through the green card application process often complained about having rarely heard from their attorneys or being left in the dark about the status of their case, the same cannot be said for the attorneys at Cohen Forman Barone, LLP. It was clearly very important to them that my wife and I be kept fully informed about how the entire process would play out, from putting the application together to our final interview with immigration. By the time our interview came we were both relaxed and fully prepared for any possible curve balls that could have come up. In the end my green card was approved on the spot. When it’s time for me to apply for my citizenship, there is no doubt that I will be hiring Cohen Forman Barone, LLP to handle the process. They truly believe in what it means to be a “Counselor of Law.””

  • The attorneys at Cohen Forman Barone, LLP not only won her case, but also helped see all of us through one of the most stressful times of our lives.

    “I come from a close family who all immigrated to the United States from South America. Our world was rocked when just a few months ago immigration authorities detained my mother due to an old conviction, which none of us had thought was a big deal. To say that my mother-as well as the rest of our family- was terrified is an understatement. We were in constant fear that she was going to be deported and that our family would be ripped apart. The attorneys at Cohen Forman Barone, LLP not only won her case, but also helped see all of us through one of the most stressful times of our lives. Their professionalism, sincere concern over my family’s well being, and commitment to my mother’s case provided an extremely calming influence during a very stressful time in our lives.”

  • I trusted David with my freedom and my life

    ““I trusted David with my freedom and my life. He stood by my side for years while battling the prosecutor’s office. He never once backed down and was always more prepared and smarter than everyone else in the courtroom. Thank god for that. The whole CFB criminal defense team was amazing.””

  • Smart, confident, aggressive.

    “Smart, confident, aggressive. They take credit cards and were very reasonable with their fees. They were even willing to accept a payment plan. Anybody we know that needs an attorney there is no hesitation, we call Cohen Forman Barone, LLP.”

  • David Cohen, Benjamin Simpson and staff worked diligently,countless hours, days, weeks and years.

    “I would like to sincerely thank Cohen Forman Barone Attorneys for their outstanding performance in my nephews recent trail case. David Cohen, Benjamin Simpson and staff worked diligently,countless hours, days, weeks and years. Their staff recorded all the facts and develop a phenomenal defense strategy. CFB attorneys have shown the abilities to challenge the legal system against all odds.”

    Nancy

  • Their devotion to my case, as evidenced by the hours of time they put in to working on my behalf- all for an extremely reasonable fee- was eye opening.

    “I fled my hometown in South America from what was a lifetime of persecution at the hands of certain individuals. I attempted to cross the U.S.-Mexico border and was stopped by customs and placed in an immigration detention facility. As I sat in that facility the fear of what was to come was just as emotionally trying as the abuse I had suffered back home. Had I known then that I would be placing my life in the hands of the attorneys at Cohen Forman Barone, LLP I would have felt a lot better. Not only did they assist me with getting released from custody, but they ultimately won my Asylum case. Their devotion to my case, as evidenced by the hours of time they put in to working on my behalf- all for an extremely reasonable fee- was eye opening. I am now living legally in the U.S. and look forward to building a new life free of the anguish I had become so accustomed to living with. And I am so thankful to the attorneys at Cohen Forman Barone, LLP for having given me that chance.”

  • David is hands down the best criminal attorney I have ever met.

    “David is hands down the best criminal attorney I have ever met. Not only are his legal skills light years above and beyond the norm, but this legal acumen coupled with a keen insight into the human psyche, forged an advocated who is tenacious, dedicated while still being able to adapt to the changing currents around him. He's the only guy you want in your corner if God forbid you find yourself on the other dude of the city room. In fact he's so good he was able to take the reins from my previous attorney after the trial proceedings had already begun and stear us away from not only a very long prison sentence but also a grievous wrongful conviction. If I had had David on retainer when this incident occurred I could have saved myself so much heart ache and collateral damage. If you have found yourself in a situation where you are thinking about retaining legal representation, believe me, you owe it to your self and your future to call David Cohen and schedule a consultation. I did. And so far I feel lucky to have such a stalwart champion in my corner.”

The best part is, he made it look so easy. He was super confident and I will never forget these words. You go on with your life and you leave this to me. And that's exactly what happened.”

    “I built my business with my own hands from the time I was 15 years old to one that employed over a thousand workers. The government came after me with trumped up charges.

I have dealt with dozens of lawyers throughout my career and for professionalism, determination and legal acumen Cohen Forman Barone, LLP are second to none.
