“What separates me from other attorneys is my respect for time. I will fight when it’s worth it, but compromise when it’s needed; a good attorney should know the difference. “

Private Clients

Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness Complete. Thorough. Meticulous…. These are a few words I would use to describe the services I received from Mr. Cockfield. He was the second lawyer I hired to handle my case after my first one stalled. Cockfield took my case for a very reasonable price and aggressively fought to have my case resolved. He is one of the few lawyers that will view you as a human being instead of just another money maker. If I find myself in need of legal assistance in the future Cockfield will be my first call.
