STEPHAN COHN. Shareholder, Berger Kahn.

Creative problem-solving is just the beginning of what longtime Orange County resident and Equity Shareholder Steve Cohn finds so enjoyable about his practice. Cohn specializes in insurance, business and real estate law at Berger Kahn in Irvine.

“I enjoy helping my clients resolve legal issues. Currently, a significant part of my practice involves helping insurance companies with claims. It requires a lot of attention to detail, patience and sometimes I deal with combative claimants. While many attorneys dread this, it is something I really enjoy,” says Cohn.

Indeed, it is clear that he not only likes his specific role at the award-winning firm, he’s proud of the unique environment he has helped to create at Berger Kahn. When it comes to work, Cohn gives his all to each client, saying, “It is not only my way, but the Berger Kahn way to bring the absolute best to everything that we do.
” Yet, the firm isn’t one to put on airs for others. “We don’t have our degrees or awards hanging on our walls. We adopted casual dress all the way back in the 1980s and were among the very first law firms to become an all Mac office. We enjoy being somewhat maverick. We try to treat our clients as we would want to be treated. We value innovation over tradition, and that is something that makes us unique among our peers.”

According to Cohn, his colleagues are what make his firm special. “Our group of six equity shareholders has been together for over 20 years,” he says, acknowledging the results that have kept the firm growing for the past 5 decades. “We are good at what we do, and we are proud to be a little different.” Cohn’s desire to help others was ingrained in him from childhood. “In my family, education was emphasized. I wanted to help people and be of service. My two brothers are doctors and my sister is a psychotherapist. I get queasy just getting blood drawn, so I became an attorney,” he laughs. “I think my desire to serve has made me someone who is unassuming, empathetic and understanding of people.”

Cohn found the perfect venue to maximize these strengths when he joined Berger Kahn in 1987. A partner since 1994, Cohn provides leadership and knowledge to the firm quietly, with expertise and unparalleled skills in serving the Orange County community where he has lived for over 40 years.
Cohn counts himself fortunate to be able to practice law in the community he has called home for almost half of a century. “I love spending time at our beautiful beaches, and harbors, surfing, running, paddle boarding and biking. Practicing law in the county where I grew up is deeply satisfying, and I feel very connected to the community where I live, work and play.”
