About this office:
Six decades ago, two enterprising lawyers, Herbert L. Cohen and Austin K. Wolf, joined forces, creating a law firm that has grown steadily to become Cohen and Wolf, a full-service firm of about 50 lawyers with four offices in Fairfield and New Haven counties. That growth is the best evidence of our success as experienced, savvy, dedicated lawyers who get the job done.
No matter how you measure success, we will help you reach your goals. We're ready to answer your questions, offer options and pursue your legal interests with diligence, skill and efficiency. Cohen and Wolf represents a diverse mix of businesses, individuals and municipalities. In many instances, we handle both the personal and professional legal needs of business owners and executives.
In everything we do, we take a collaborative, multi-disciplinary approach to ensure that the advice we give in each area of law works in concert with our clients' overall goals. While intently focused on the small details required in legal work, we never lose sight of the big picture for our clients' success.
