Judge Cohn has good judicial temperment. Despite my difference of opinion with judge Cohn on many legal issues, he always allows the advocates access to the record and considers both sides before ruling.

Judge Cohn is one of our finest county court judges in Miami-Dade. Very glad that he was not unseated by his recent challenger, Lourdes Cambo. He would have been a great loss to our county court bench.

Judge Cohn is both compassionate and understanding. He is also very current on the law. He has a perfect demeanor for the bench and treats all litigants fairly. His background as a criminal and appellate lawyer makes him well qualified in his role as a civil court judge. Definitely a pleasure to practice before.

Nice guy, but now in the pocket of the plaintiff's attorneys in civil court. He is not as fair as he used to be in the beginning.

Judge Cohn is one of the unsung heroes of the county court bench. His low-key and unpretentious demeanor do not garner him much attention, but he is one of the most pleasant, qualified, capable, and hard working judges in the county court. A pleasure to appear before.
