Cohen Family Law Firm

Scott A. Cohen, Esq.

15 Reviews

Scott A. Cohen, Esquire is a different kind of lawyer. A better kind of lawyer. A Personal Family Lawyer.

Scott’s law practice is focused on serving the needs of young and growing families, from a parent’s perspective. Our clients enjoy peace of mind knowing that they have not left anything to chance, and have ensured that their wealth and legacy will endure. And, most important, that their children will be cared for by the people they want, in the way that they want.

Born in Philadelphia, raised in Delaware County, and living in Center City for more than twenty years, Scott knows and understands the concerns of his friends and neighbors. As the population of young families staying in the city has swelled, Scott realized that there was a need for someone to help educate and empower parents to make the best decisions for their lives now, and also to provide a long term, ongoing counseling relationship as their families and wealth grow.

When I’m not serving clients’ needs or spending quality time with my wife and two awesome kids, I can be found on my road bike traveling the back roads, or in the woods on my mountain bike. I was born right here in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania at Thomas Jefferson Hospital, and grew up in Haverford Township, Delaware County. After graduating from Haverford High School, I attended Tulane University in the wonderful city of New Orleans, graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Management. I graduated from Widener University School of Law in 2000 and have been practicing to be a different kind of lawyer ever since!
