Michael B. Cohen, Esq.

An Enthusiastic and Effective Florida Criminal Defense Attorney

Over the course of more than 40 years of practicing in the legal system both as a criminal defense attorney as well as leading many cases for the prosecution, I've been honored by being recognized by Martindale-Hubbell® with an AV® Preeminent™ Peer Review Rating SM *, in addition to being named a Board Certified Criminal Trial Lawyer by The Florida Board of Legal Specialization **.

Being a veteran of countless cases and spending many years arguing in court on my client’s behalf, my performance has also been recognized by Super Lawyer ***, which is a distinction placing me in the top five percentile of all attorneys practicing in the State of Florida; also earning a board certification and member in good standing from The Florida Bar ****.

Equal Familiarity with the Prosecution and the Defense

Functioning in the past as an Assistant United States Attorney for the Southern District of Florida, as well as an Assistant State Attorney for Broward County, Florida, I have aggressively prosecuted numerous trials by jury; providing a profound appreciation and comprehension of the central mechanisms of both state and federal prosecutors and the methods they utilize specific to distinct alleged crimes, as well as the weight of extenuating and aggravating circumstances involved in their decision making process in these prosecutions. My ability to understand the flaws and strong points of a particular professed offense as well as anticipating the approach of the prosecution assists in effectively positioning strong advocacy when defending a client who is facing allegations of a criminal complaint.
