Attorney Debbie Cohen
Ms. Cohen is a native Chicagoan who grew up in the northern suburbs. She graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison with a Communications major that focused on "Communication Science & Rhetorical Studies". In everyday language, that means she mastered how to analyze information, read people, communicate, argue and debate. After college, Ms. Cohen worked several jobs including cold-call sales, waitressing, and interning at WGN-TV. During that time, Debbie, who had always been urged by her family and friends to become an attorney, did a lot of soul-searching and made up her own mind that she actually wanted to become a lawyer. So Ms. Cohen intensely studied, applied and was accepted to law school and is proud to say that she is the first and only lawyer in her family.
While in law school, Ms. Cohen was selected to represent Chicago-Kent College of Law by competing on the school's elite trial team. She competed in student trial advocacy competitions, where she traveled the country competing in court-like settings. Ms. Cohen received the distinguishable honor of being named the "Best Trial Advocate" in her competition in Atlanta, GA.
After law school, Ms. Cohen worked for years with the Cook County State's Attorney's Office where she prosecuted hundreds of criminal cases ranging from misdemeanors and DUIs to serious felonies, such as murder. Since leaving the State's Attorney's Office, Ms. Cohen has litigated civil matters, honorably served as an Assistant SPECIAL Prosecutor for Cook County, and worked as an Investigator for the Cook County Independent Inspector General's Office. Ms. Cohen ultimately opened her own law firm where she applies her knowledge and extensive experience to fight on behalf of those accused of criminal acts or facing family law matters.
Ms. Cohen realizes how devastating the consequences can be of obtaining a criminal conviction or getting a divorce. Ms. Cohen genuinely cares about the outcome of each case and recognizes how detrimental the impact may be to your life, family and future.

She uses her gift of gab, analytical skills, innate ability to read people, fierce trial skills and big heart to help other people.
