Ms. Cohen has assisted divorce and family law clients for over a decade. During her formative years, she honed her skills under the mentorship of the Honorable Teresa A. Kondrup-Coyle, J.S.C. in Monmouth County, delving into research, drafting legal documents, and absorbing the nuances of judicial proceedings. This immersive experience bestowed upon her a profound understanding of the judicial system, enabling her to craft compelling arguments that serve her clients’ interests in court. This insight not only enhances her courtroom presence but also provides tangible benefits to her clients, equipping them with a strategic advantage in legal disputes.

A Rutgers University alumna for both her undergraduate and law degrees, Ms. Cohen served as Co-Editor-in-Chief of the Women’s Rights Law Reporter, the first legal periodical in the U.S. to focus exclusively on the field of women’s rights law. In that role, she supervised a staff of 20 to 30 students and spearheaded the publication of four volumes of the journal each year. This experience was pivotal in shaping her commitment to precision, thorough research, and clear communication — skills that she applies diligently to her current practice.

Admitted to practice before the New Jersey courts, Ms. Cohen is a proud member of the New Jersey State Bar Association (NJSBA) as well as the  NJSBA’s Family Law Section and Young Lawyers Division. She is also a member of the Ocean County, Burlington County, Mercer County, Atlantic County and Monmouth County Bar Associations.
