The Contingency Fee

Wayne R. Cohen, PC

As the founder and managing partner at Cohen & Cohen, Wayne R. Cohen understands the nuances of personal injury law, especially when it comes to cases related to medical malpractice, class actions, product liability, wrongful death, and car accidents. Wayne has established himself in the Washington, DC community for being a legal force both inside and outside of the courtroom.


If Mr. Cohen looks familiar, then it is possible you have seen or heard about him before. He has appeared in the public eye on various occasions, including print, radio, and television media. All in all, he has been a guest on NBC, ABC, The Today Show, Good Morning America, WTOP, Fox News, Fox5 and ESPN Radio. He has been featured in The Washington Post, USA Today, The Washingtonian, The Examiner, and The Wall Street Journal.

The Washingtonian Magazine described Wayne as one of Washington’s top 40 lawyers under 40, Washington’s top trial lawyers, the 50 best lawyers in Washington, and the city’s most feared personal injury lawyers. Further description of these features can be found in the magazine’s issues for June 2001, April 2002, August 2004, July 2006, December 2007, December 2009, November 2011, December 2013, and November 2015.
