Lesser, Lesser, Landy & Smith recently announced that attorney Samuel S. Cohen has joined the skilled team of attorneys handling serious personal injury and wrongful death cases throughout Florida.
Cohen, like many of the attorneys at the firm, began his career defending doctors and medical facilities from malpractice lawsuits. He then joined a well-known personal injury firm where he represented plaintiffs in personal injury cases, gaining experience in the negotiation, litigation and trial process.
“Sam’s background and previous experience make him an excellent addition to the team,” Managing Partner Gary S. Lesser said. “He is a strong advocate for his clients and works hard at obtaining the best results for his clients, which is the mission of our firm.”
Cohen is the third generation of his family to grow up in West Palm Beach. He graduated from the Benjamin School as a four-sport varsity letterman. He then attended Florida Atlantic University, where he received his bachelor’s degree in English with a focus on American literature, and then earned his law degree and environmental law certificate from Florida Coastal School of Law in 2012.
Cohen is currently focusing on representing injured clients and focuses his community involvement as a current board member for the Palm Beach County Bar Association Young Lawyers Section, as well as raising money and awareness for important causes like the Cancer Alliance for Help and Hope (No Shave November event), the Education Advocacy Project at Legal Aid, and the AustinBlu Foundation (YLS Fishing Tournament). He also focuses his time with the Florida Off Road Cycling Enthusiasts as the organization’s current secretary.
Cohen is a fan of the arts and is a current Young Friends of the Palm Beach Opera member and a Young Friends of the Kravis Center member.
