About Me

I began working at the Law Office of Stephen M. Cohen while finishing Law School at night. As a paralegal, I drafted motions and memoranda of law, and conducted extensive legal research, focusing on insurance, liability, medical and health care issues. After being admitted to the bar,I became an associate of the firm, representing seriously injured persons, health care facilities and doctors. As a Junior Partner, I oversaw the firms paralegal and investigation team. Currently, as name partner, I continue to practice in the areas of Personal Injury, Insurance Law, Products Liability, Lead Paint Poisoning, and Public Entity Liability. I manage the workflow for six associate attorneys and the firms entire support staff. I deal with Allstate, State Farm, and a large number of other major Insurance Carriers on a daily basis, with an emphasis on legal issues relating to accident liability, and the wrongful denial of medical payments to health care practitioners in “no-fault” cases. I continue to counsel health care practitioners and large and small health care facilities on issues varying from management service agreements to collections to liability. I also handle catastrophic personal injury cases.

In the spare time that I (dont) have, I volunteer as a Firefighter and Medic (AEMT-CC) for the Jericho Fire Department and Brentwood Legion Ambulance.

His expertise in ALL of my situations were incredible. I was pleasently surprised with all 3 outcomes and DEFINITELY could not have chosen a more knowledgeable attorney.
