DAVID M. COHEN has been in private practice for over 35 years. He graduated law school in 1981 from Southwestern University in Los Angeles, CA after obtaining his undergraduate degree from Drew University in Madison, NJ. While still in law school, he excelled in the course studies of Contracts and Wills & Trusts in which he won the prestigious AmJur (“American Jurisprudence”) “Book Award” honor for attaining the highest grades in his class.
Mr. Cohen has demonstrated litigation skills and has received recognition by the Supreme Court of the State of New Jersey by which he has been “Certified as a Civil Trial Attorney” since 1995. He was recertified for another 5 years beginning in 2000. Additional distinction was received in the same year when he was accepted as a member of the elite National Board of Trial Attorneys, which seeks to qualify those attorneys who have demonstrated unique courtroom skills. In the years 2005, 2006, 2008 and 2010 he has proudly been included among the list of Super Lawyers* as published in New Jersey Monthly magazine.
Mr. Cohen has handled various types of cases including divorce and family matters, municipal court appearances, and collection work. However, the overwhelming majority of his experience has been in handling significant personal injury cases and Worker’s Compensation cases. With a number of hard fought and won trials, he has obtained successful settlements and jury verdicts for many satisfied clients. Because he is a firm believer in the old adage that genius is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration, Mr. Cohen personally prepares all of his cases for trial.
David has chosen to close the doors of his solo practice, formerly located in Verona, NJ, to become Of Counsel at Javerbaum Wurgaft to offer his clients the advantages and resources of a midsize law firm.
