      "Her robust knowledge of family law made me feel like I was represented by the best of the best during my divorce proceedings."

      I would highly recommend Abigail Cohen to anyone seeking divorce representation. Abigail was a staunch advocate and impressive litigator. Her robust knowledge of family law made me feel like I was represented by the best of the best during my divorce proceedings. She effectively managed my expectations and was empathetic to the personal trauma I was going through during the toughest time of my life. Abigail is a true attorney-advisor. She helped me think through every outcome before I made an important decision, quelling my reservations and providing confidence and certainty during very uncertain times.

      "Detailed Oriented and Thorough"

      I highly recommend Abigail Cohen to any client seeking help with a prenuptial agreement.

      Abby was incredibly detail-orientated and thorough. She demonstrated a commanding knowledge of family and Florida prenuptial law. Her work product was first-rate. And she was always incredibly responsive and quick. 

      But what I appreciated most was how kind she was. She went above and beyond to answer all my questions, helped me think through tough decisions, and explained every step of the process. I never felt rushed, and I appreciate that she took the time to get to fully understand my circumstances—to get to know me, my family, my small business, and my priorities. She was always responsive to emails or calls. And she made me feel at ease throughout the process.

      I also enjoyed working with Abby’s team, Kristy and Kristina. They were always very responsive and helpful with technology and scheduling.

      Having worked with many attorneys, I can easily say without reservation that working with Abby was one of the best and most stress-free experiences I have had. I cannot recommend her and her team highly enough.

She is highly responsive, detailed, and strategic in her approach. I always felt informed knowing that she was working to achieve the best possible outcome for me. I’m grateful to have had her as my counsel. I highly recommend Abby and can’t thank her enough for her support.
