I am attorney Brian J. Cohan. I serve clients throughout the metropolitan Chicagoland area.

It is important to consider the unique background and qualifications of a lawyer when retaining that lawyer. Unlike other lawyers who have gone to law school without working
in the “real world”, I have managed real estate, run an advertising agency, and even worked in the transportation industry.

With a Juris Doctorate with emphases in Estate Planning, Estate Administration, Taxation and Litigation, and Principal of a boutique estate planning and probate law firm, I am well positioned to serve you as
your lawyer.
