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.
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.
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 wellbeing, and commitment to my mother’s case provided an extremely calming influence during a very stressful time in our lives.

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.

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 curveballs 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.”
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.
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. The attorneys at Cohen Forman Barone, LLP were able to get the indictment dismissed not just once but twice. 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. If you are in trouble, being investigated or know someone who is they are definitely the first and only number you need.
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.

I can’t say enough good things about the law firm Cohen Forman Barone, LLP. I called them almost everyday and was always able to get information on my case. They called me with case updates and mailed me whatever documents I requested. They made me feel like we were a team dedicated to getting me out of a difficult situation.

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.
