5.0/5.0 Posted by a Managing Partner on 11/29/12
Nelson is a gifted courtroom advocate -- superb cross-examination technique and ability. Also very good with both juries and judges. Top-notch in discovery, depositions, and so forth. There is no "weak spot" in his ability in civil practice, and he is also a very good mentor to younger attorneys - very positive and encouraging. Nelson is a positive influence on those with whom he works, and is a credit to the bar.

Nelson is an excellent lawyer and has the highest possible recommendation from me. He represents the highest level ethics and legal skill that is expected from the profession. In every way possible, he is an AV lawyer and has been for a very long time in my opinion.

In the past couple of years Mr. Cohen has been defense counsel in some high dollar personal injury trials tried in my courtroom. He has been the first chair of lead defense counsel with others assisting and is an excellent litigator.
