“He and his great staff are always accessible and ready to answer all questions. Attorney review letters usually are sent the day they receive the contract. My clients have nothing but positive comments about Joel, Judy, Marie and Janet. He has represented myself and my family for many years.”


“Joel Cohen and his team are great for busy people like me as they think ahead and give you clear guidelines on next steps. I could always reach Joel , his para legal and admin. Whoever I reached took the effort to get my answer. Joel and his team use modern communication, and many things were handled via email and text. I do not have time to make phone calls or stop in the office. Perfect for someone with limited time.”


“Joel Cohen is always attentive to our clients. As a busy real estate broker, its imperative an attorney we recommend be available and provide important real estate legal advice and expertise. Joel is that. He is a good listener and fair negotiator. He will always go to bat for the buyer or seller client if it becomes necessary. Joel’s paralegal Judy Nadeau is also a key cog in keeping the transaction smooth and pleasant.”


“I am a real estate agent who has recommended and used the services of Joel Cohen since 2003. I cannot say enough good things about the professionalism of both Joel and all of his office…they truly work as a professional team. Whenever I recommend Joel to a client I always tell them if you want a deal to go through with no problems go with Joel. I have had many instances where the “deal” was ready to go south and Joel has always pulled it back together,,,he and his team make it seem easy but I know it’s not! He and his staff are tireless and don’t quit until it’s done. I have recommended clients to him that kept changing their minds constantly about wanting a home or not wanting the home….a deal finally went through and he and his staff were so kind to these particular people…they have more patience than I do. I recommend Joel to everyone because I know they will be in good hands.”


“This office was amazing! Every person who works here, especially Janet, was always willing to help! Thank you for all of your hard work!”
