Cohen and Wolf, PC

In 1951, two enterprising lawyers, Herbert L. Cohen and Austin K. Wolf, joined forces, creating a law firm that has grown steadily to become Cohen and Wolf, a full-service firm of about 50 lawyers with three offices in Connecticut. That growth is the best evidence of our success as experienced, savvy, dedicated lawyers who get the job done.

No matter how you measure success, we will help you reach your goals. We’re ready to answer your questions, offer options and pursue your legal interests with diligence, skill and efficiency. Cohen and Wolf represents a diverse mix of businesses, individuals and municipalities. In many instances, we handle both the personal and professional legal needs of business owners and executives.
