Mark H. Cohen is widely recognized as a leading litigation attorney in the greater New York City real estate industry having achieved success while still in his mid-40’s. That success derives from his ability to simultaneously think like a business man and a lawyer. Born in Brooklyn, New York, and raised in North Brunswick, New Jersey, Mark brings a passion and spirit to his representation of clients in the greater New York City area.

In 2011, Mark founded Mark H. Cohen & Associates PC., a real estate law firm focusing on two major areas – representation of commercial and residential building owners and management companies in all landlord-tenant legal needs; and representation of sellers and buyers in the sale and purchase of buildings and condominium and cooperative units.

Founding his firm on the fundamental principles of hard work, thorough preparation and a fierce willingness to fight for his clients best interests at all times, Mark has greatly expanded the firm since its inception.
