I knew Zac's personality before I knew him as an attorney. He would come into my previous place of work--a local restaurant in Monroe--late in the day or early evening to eat. Every time he came in, he would make his rounds, talking to other guests and Monroe locals. I observed on numerous occasions how social, friendly, and well-spoken he is. When I asked others about him, everyone had great things to say about him and he was well known around town from his amazing actions in the courtroom. Most people referred to him as "the best lawyer Monroe has to offer." I am a hard-working college student and soon-to-be first-time mom, and I have never really had the need for a lawyer. In November, I totaled my vehicle and a court date was set to show that my insurance covered the damages on my SUV. I decided to represent myself, but even though I did this and it had been many months since I had seen Zac, he still took the time out of his long day in the courtroom to message me on Facebook and talk to me about my case. He was not concerned that I was not his client at the time, which showed me that Zac is a truly caring individual. This characteristic is a rarity because most of the lawyers I have dealt with by proxy were more concerned with making a large paycheck and would never take the time to reach out to someone who was not already paying them a large sum of money. This past week, I traveled out of state to visit family between semesters at UNCC and when I got here, I got into another wreck. This unexpected problem left me stressed out because my next court date is in a few days and getting back to N.C. so soon is nearly impossible. I contacted Zac for guidance on what I should do and he surpassed my expectations by offering to help and handle everything for me without me having to travel back to NC for court. With everything else going on, he has made my life a million times easier by giving me one less thing to worry about. If you are looking to hire a lawyer, your best option is hiring Zac Cohen, especially if you are looking for someone who cares about people, and not just "the bottom line."

To all it may concern : I became a client of Mr Cohen after I was pulled over by a police officer for making a illegal u turn . the end result was the the officers issued me a situation for this offense which put my license in jeopardy of adding points to my license which wasn't good for me because I'm a truck driver so I needed a lawyer ASAP and Cohen & associates was the first law firm that I tried and The secretary was very helpful and attentive and courtious after they put the order in with the courts for a continuos about a little over 3 weeks later I got word back from the Secretary that the courts dismissed all charges no points on my license and I didn't have to pay no court cost. Thanks a million to the Cohen & associates fiirm .truck driver from Charlotte nc
Tips & Advices
Each state has different mandates on how child support is determined. But there are some basic factors that underline how costs are determined in each state, including:
  • Income level of parent that needs to pay support (in the case of joint custody, the costs are determined by income of each party and the percentage of time the child spends with each parent)
  • Financial needs of child
  • Child’s standard of living before the divorce occurred
This is a divorce in which one party does not have to prove that the other’s actions lead to a deterioration of the marriage. The reason for divorce is listed as "irreconcilable differences" or an "irreparable breakdown of the marriage,” meaning the marriage was no longer working and could not be repaired.
Family law attorneys are helpful in cases where the two parties are not on amicable terms. The lawyers can act as intermediaries between the two parties and help them come to any settlement agreements, however long that may take. Lawyers can also help parties navigate tricky state laws regarding settlement agreements and child custody, thus expediting the process.
A contested divorce is one in which the parties cannot agree on either the necessity of the divorce as a whole, or how assets (money, property, etc.) and child custody should be split between them in the divorce. An uncontested divorce is when the parties are in agreement on how assets and child custody will be split between them. These divorces can sometimes be handled without hiring a lawyer.
It is possible for a couple to get a divorce without hiring a family law attorney. If the two parties are in agreement on how finances, child custody, properties, etc., will be split, then they can file the necessary court documents themselves and avoid the services of a lawyer.
