About Lawrence Cohan

Larry Cohan has forged new law in both the trial and appellate court levels in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Washington, D.C. Larry was plaintiff’s lead counsel for the MDL on the infamous “human tissue” scandal case. Larry served as Lead Counsel in the first and only “market share” lead poisoning case filed in Pennsylvania against the lead pigment industry. Larry is presently representing victims of a recalled robotic surgical device, and the potentially deadly used uterine morcellators.


Larry has obtained multimillion-dollar jury verdicts in toxic tort and medical malpractice cases in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. He obtained the first plaintiff’s verdict in an asbestos case in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, with the first verdict of its kind against asbestos “friction” product defendants, GE, GTE and Eaton Cutler-Hammer Corporation. Recently, Larry obtained a 7.4 million dollar jury verdict in a ground breaking mesothelioma case. He also testified before the Pennsylvania State House against proposed asbestos litigation which would have denied victims rights.


Larry represents victims suffering from rare vaccine injuries before the United States Court of Appeals in Washington, D.C. as part of the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, and serves on the Board of the Vaccine Injured Petitioners Bar Association. He has also lobbied with the Pennsylvania legislature on behalf of children injured by lead poisoning.


Larry is a New Jersey Certified Civil Trial Attorney. The New Jersey Supreme Court designates certified civil trial attorneys, a rare designation to only a few lawyers based upon documented experience litigating and trying complex civil cases before a jury.

Larry is also a Certified Trial Advocate with the National Board of Trial Advocacy (NBTA), which promotes excellence in legal advocacy as the first American Bar Association-accredited attorney board-certifying agency in the world.
