My divorce, custody and child support litigation changed as the situation changed through the years (eg. Changes in child custody as to who was the custodial parent). In an atmosphere very unfamiliar and intimidating to me, I was so much in need of a stable support who was not only familiar with the court system but who could portray my needs and the multiple factors involved in my case to those making the decisions. Fran has been there for us as this support from the very beginning in 2006, through the years when I needed her legal support even to helping to facilitate a domestic settlement agreement last year. In my experience, it was always an instant relief when I'd see her on arrival to court and with Fran sitting beside me in the processes, I felt confident that I had a skilled advocate.
During my divorce and custody hearings over the last four years, I have worked with multiple attorneys in various states. I initially required the needs of an attorney in NY who would work closely with a jurisdictional attorney from another state, but Ms Cohen was such an outstanding litigator and protagonist, and an extremely skillful communicator that i continued with her throughout the years and have never regretted one moment working with her.She has intelligence, character and grit and will fight like hell for her client. She is a virtuoso in the Richmond Court system where I have witnessed her finesse. She understands the nuances of the court system and the law as well as or better than any attorney I have worked with. She comes highly recommended.
Mrs. Cohen was very professional to work with, while being compassionate as well. She was timely with returning phone calls and/or e-mails. I would recommend Mrs. Cohen to anyone seeking legal counsel in her field.
Francine Cohen is a wonderful attorney. From the initial phone consultation to the completion of my case she was definitely someone I trusted. She is extremely knowledgeable and very professional. She knows her field of law extremely well and keeps abreast with any changes of the law. I trust her completely.so much so that when my daughter needed an attorney there was no question who she would retain. That was Francine Pickett Cohen. I would refer anyone to her.
I feel Francine to be a very patient, understanding and talented individual. Even if she does not agree with what you want to accomplish, she aids you in fulfilling that which you request. Francine has a way of making you feel very comfortable at a trying time in your life.
Ms. Cohen did an excellent job both in communicating risks and benefits in terms of strategies. Her written and verbal arguments were extremely well done and persuasive. She had both tactical and strategic insights that, combined with her communication skills, led to complete success in a situation in which even partial success would have been fortuitous. The strength of her wording, her trenchant arguments and her persuasive briefs were all outstanding.
Francince Pickett Cohen not only gives me the best advice during this difficult time but she is also compassionate. Francine is very professional, knowledgeable and knows her stuff. I feel very confident with her by my side. I would recommend her and this law firm to others.
I would highly recommend this law firm if you are going through a divorce . They are extremely professional and Fran always answered my questions and concerns very quickly. I really must say she really knows what she is doing and did an awesome job when it came to everything I was suppose to receive in my settlement.

Francine represented me in my divorce proceedings several years ago. When I first went in to meet Fran, I was nervous and uncertain about what the future held for me. Fran sat me down and listened; she then spoke to me about the entire process and alleviated all of my fears. Fran was with me every step of the way. I have to say that I had a lot to lose; but Fran was able to negotiate an excellent Settlement and I was able to keep the things that I was scared of losing. Fran truly cares about her clients; you are not just another "person" she is doing business with, you are someone she truly cares about. Years after my Settlement was signed, if I had a question- I called Fran and she was always there to help. Always there to listen and give excellent advice. Thank you Fran; I honestly don't know if I could have gone through the ordeal without you by my side. I cannot recommend anyone more qualified!!

I went to Francine’s office with tears in my eyes and a 6 month old sleeping in a stroller. She’s been my saving grace through a difficult time in my life. I truly do not know what I would Have done without her. She is incredibly knowledgeable in divorce, custody and child support, she is a tough lawyer in the court room, always fighting for what is right and what you need. Her heart is so genuine. She would call to find out how we were doing, and years later never forgot about us. In fact I needed To head back to court and she was there to pick up the pieces once again 6 years later. Thank you Francine and your beautiful team for all you have done for myself and my family. job well done! Highly recommended!

Francine has been my attorney over the last 7 years on and off for various issues with my ex-wife. And as anyone who has been through a divorce would tell you , it’s a very stressful and taxing ordeal. But having a lawyer like Francine Cohn on your side makes all the difference. She is smart , diligent , punctual and is very knowledgeable in her field. She is the lawyer you want to have representing you. And this is not just from my own experience. This is from other lawyers that I have talked to and have worked with or against her on various cases. Thanks Francine for all your help.

I required Francine’s services for a divorce approximately five years ago. I’m writing this review now as I looked her up to see see if she offer services such as doing a will. She was excellent immediately following and during my proceedings my ex wife said she wished she used her first. No complaints here. I’ve since recommended her to a co worker who was satisfied with her services as well.
