Meet Attorney Jason D. Cohn

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.

From Previous Clients

  • I would highly recommend them to anyone in need of honest, knowledgeable, and hard fighting attorneys.

    “It was such a pleasure to be represented by Cohn & Swartzon, P.C. recently. I would highly recommend them to anyone in need of honest, knowledgeable, and hard fighting attorneys. After a car accident which involved numerous injuries, I couldn't handle the stress of dealing with the insurance companies. They completely took over for me. They negotiated with the insurance companies and as a result of their determination, I received a very fast and fair settlement. All during this process, they kept me updated on all the proceedings, always returned my phone calls promptly and answered any questions I had the entire staff at Cohn & Swartzon, P.C. were always courteous and helpful. Thank you ever so much!”

  • They certainly took the stress away in settling my claim

    “It is a real pleasure to recommend Cohn & Swartzon! For personal, prompt and excellent service they can't be beat. They certainly took the stress away in settling my claim. I am so thankful to them.”

    Barbara M.

  • They stayed true to their word

    “Let me begin by saying that I would recommend Cohn & Swartzon to anyone in need of legal advice. Both Jason and Saar are very personable and they provided a high level of service to me as their client. In addition to Jason and Saar, the entire staff always provided the utmost in service. One of the things that I liked was the fact that they stayed true to their word. They told me that they personally would take calls, if necessary. It was not very often that I needed to speak directly to them; but when I did, they were accessible. I appreciate the great lengths that they went to in working with an uncooperative doctor, who took a very long time getting a key report to them. They worked with the insurance companies and the adjusters, which took all of the unnecessary stress off of me. The Firm went to bat for me and we were successful in settling my personal injury case without going to trial. Saar was able to negotiate and reduce my medical bills, thus putting more cash into my hands. I was pleasantly surprised at the outcome, and the timing of the settlement couldn't have come at a better time.”

    V.O.

  • 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.”

  • If ever any type of accident happens to a friend or family, you would be at the top of my list to recommend.
