Client Comments

"Doug Cohen is by far the best environmental attorney I have worked with in my 32 years in the environmental field. His years with EPA and the Justice Department gave him an understanding of environmental law that is unmatched. He is always fully prepared to deal with any issues that come up in the 16 projects he is handling for ACF. He continues to save ACF millions of dollars annually through his ability to negotiate the best deal for us in superfund and other environmental litigation matters."
