Great experience, very personable, knowledgeable, and personal.

I had a great experience with Cogan & Power. They set up a lawsuit for me for a drunk driver incident. They did it very quickly and kept me in the loop about all of the information. I didn’t really understand the information presented to me, and they were able to break it down for me. They were very personable, knowledgeable, and intimate. Overall, they were very good! I’d highly recommend them.

Great, Caring Attorneys

Michael Cogan and his associates, like Patti Tuttle are a God send! They showed care and concern for our family during a difficult time and made the whole process painless by working for us to get the best settlement possible. Thank U!

Chanel H.

Went above and beyond my expectations.

Cogan & Power surpassed all of my expectations. I had them represent me in a car accident case with my automobile, and I could not ask for more. They were very quick and efficient, and I loved how they were both extremely professional and personal at the same time. This was my first time using them, and I would definitely use them again.

Stephen D.

Great customer service, very honest people and it was a pleasure.

I hired Cogan & Power for a personal injury claim. They were the best attorneys I have ever spoken to. They would call me back when promised; between the secretary and them, I had great communication.

Personal Injury Client

Once they told me the dates to be there, they walked me through the process. They helped me tremendously; I would have never been able to receive this settlement with out their help and knowledge.


The attorney had told me to hold off and not to make any harsh decisions; otherwise, I would have gotten less than what I deserved. I listened to him and I was very happy with the results.

 Tony N.

Represented my family with class.

Cogan & Power treated my family with great respect and in a delicate manner. They treated my family accordingly. They properly represented my family and the core cause of the problem. They did so with great class and I thoroughly appreciated their service.

Anthony V.

Very Professional!

Diane O.

Excellent service from inception to conclusion!

I contacted Cogan & Power due to a personal injury during an auto accident. I rate them highly because everything specific to my case was well handled. I was able to know the probability and amount of settlement with anticipation.  They had good attention to detail and had the ability to negotiate to the highest settlement in my case. Their negotiability of my settlement for the opposing party brought the best resolution. Overall, they were very knowledgeable with the laws specific to my case; excellent service from inception to conclusion!
