Jay Cohen Named FLABOTA’s 2021 Trial Lawyer of the Year
Jay Cohen was named 2021 Trial Lawyer of the Year at the 23rd Annual Awards Banquet and Board Installation of the Florida Chapter of the America Board of Trial Advocates (FLABOTA).
While his list of accolades and accomplishments are nearly infinite, 2020 was certainly the year of Jay Cohen. A lifelong trial lawyer, Jay has a reputation that is truly beyond reproach. One would be hard pressed to find anyone who does not hold Jay Cohen in the highest regard.
— Brent Reitman, President Fort Lauderdale Chapter of FLABOTA
FLABOTA is one of only four regional chapters chartered by the American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA). There are 11 local chapters throughout the state. Every year, each local chapter nominates a trial attorney for consideration as Trial Attorney of the Year, and Jay Cohen was selected among the top nominees in the entire State of Florida.
ABOTA was founded in 1958. The national organization and its regional chapters are dedicated to the preservation of the jury trial in civil cases, and professionalism and civility in the justice system. To further these endeavors, ABOTA works to maintain educational programs about the history and value of the right to trial, the quality and independence of the judiciary, and the importance of equal justice for all Americans — all of which are fundamental to our democratic republic.
