Jason D. CohnJason D. Cohn

20+ Years of Experience Working For You

A true California native, Jason D. Cohn was born and raised in Orange County. Staying close to home after graduating high school, he attended the prestigious Entrepreneur Program at the University of Southern California’s (USC) Marshall School of Business. While a student at USC, Jason was a member of the Alpha Epsilon Pi Fraternity and befriended his fellow fraternity brother, Saar Swartzon. Little did Jason know, years later he and Saar would later be the founders of their own law firm - Cohn & Swartzon, P.C. Nonetheless, upon graduating from USC in 1994, Jason decided to follow his now late-father’s legal career by attending Whittier Law School in Los Angeles.

Education

  • USC, Bachelor of Science, Business Administration (1994)
  • Whittier Law School, J.D., Cum Laude (1997)

Jason excelled as a law student; he would hold private tutoring sessions and was regularly included on the Dean’s List. Due to Jason's excellent performance in law school, he was invited to join the Whittier Law Review and Moot Court Honors Board. In 1997, Jason graduated from Whittier Law School, cum laude, and relocated back to Orange County from Los Angeles. Jason began practicing law as a business litigator and then later, a personal injury defense attorney for a distinguished law firm in Newport Beach.

Continuing a History of Excellence

Jason's father, a fellow lawyer, tragically passed away in 2003. Since Jason was tired of the stance insurance companies generally take against individuals asserting personal injury claims, and wanting to turn a tragedy into something positive, he started his own practice in his late-father's former office, switching sides to represent the injured. After running his own law practice for approximately 5 years, in 2008, Jason teamed up with long-time friend and colleague Saar Swartzon; together they founded the law firm of Cohn & Swartzon, P.C.

Recent Reviews From Previous Clients

  • I was very pleased with the firm's persistence

    “I highly recommend Cohn & Swartzon. When I decided to retain the Firm, I initially spoke with Attorney Jason D. Cohn. He was very knowledgeable and helpful in explaining what sort of personal injury case to expect. With the assistance of Attorney Saar Swartzon, Cohn & Swartzon were able to get me a $28,000 settlement. I was very pleased with the firm's persistence and hard work. The attorneys always kept me informed about how my case was going, they were completely honest, and offered great advice. They listened to my concerns and needs, and always made me feel like I was a high priority client. Everyone at the Firm is very friendly and caring, both as one's legal representation, and simply as individuals. Thanks again!”

    Barbara M.

  • Thank you again for all your help and dedication

    “Saar, I wanted to say thank you again for all your help and dedication. The settlement was a bonus. My main concern was my well-being. And I'm glad to say I am well. I do not have any back pain and I can enjoy watching and interacting with my daughter. One more time and on behalf of my family, thanks.”

  • From my personal experience, I can refer Cohn & Swartzion to anybody!

    “I was involved in an auto accident earlier this year. A friend of mine referred me to attorney Saar Swartzon at Cohn & Swartzon, a Professional Law Corporation. I met with Mr. Swartzon and his senior paralegal Linda Chapman to discuss my accident. We discussed the accident, the pain I was in and how my doctor was going to submit a request for physical therapy to my insurance company, which could take up to two weeks to obtain approval I was told. I informed Mr. Swartzon that I had previously had cervical surgery in 2012 and how it took almost a month to receive approval for physical therapy from my insurance company and make my first appointment with the physical therapist they approved me for. With the pain I suffered from the whiplash caused by the accident, I could not wait that long. Mr. Swartzon referred me to a physician that he knew so I could be evaluated and obtain written approval immediately for physical therapy. Mr. Swartzon also referred me to a physical therapy location near my work, which took me in immediately. During my treatments, I did not have to worry about anything. Linda Chapman handled all of the incoming bills that I received incurred by the accident as well as all of the correspondence from the insurance companies requesting updates. Their legal assistant Renee Bushman did a great job following up on the information requested by Linda about the other party to help with my case. I was always kept informed on the status of my case and always received quick responses to my emails. Due to the outstanding work that Saar, Linda and Renee had done, my case settled quickly and I am once again pain free. Now I know why my friend referred me to Saar Swartzon at Cohn & Swartzon and I can honestly say from my personal experience that I can refer them to anybody reading my review as well as anybody I know who is involved in an auto accident.”

  • I am very happy with the level of service Cohn & Swartzon provided!

    “I am very happy with the level of service Cohn & Swartzon provided me with during my time of need. I truly did not expect my insurance to cover my legal fees, but I am sure that Attorney Cohn and Attorney Swartzon wrote a great letter to them. I hope that I don't need an attorney ever again; but if I did, I would go back to Cohn & Swartzon. And I would definitely refer my family and friends.”
