Matthew Cohen, Associate Attorney

Washington Family Law Attorney

Matthew CohenMatt’s desire to be an attorney was born out of a concern for people in difficult situations. He chose family law because of the unique opportunity it provides him to help clients when they are at some of the lowest, most challenging points in their lives. He seeks to strike the balance between aggressive representation and compassionate client service, in order to protect his clients’ best interests and help them navigate difficult situations like divorce, child custody conflicts, and more.

Matt says the most rewarding thing about practicing family law is being able to be someone his clients can rely on and a source of stability and clarity during trying times.

Despite having been born and raised in Milwaukee, Matt has relocated to the Pacific Northwest and has been calling it home since his law school days. As a former Division I soccer player, Matt loves playing soccer and futsal in Portland and hiking the area’s beautiful trails. While he loves sports and the great outdoors, the thing Matt loves the most about Portland is its friendly people.

Matt says of his future at Landerholm Family Law, “I look to the future with energy and enthusiasm to see where our forward progress takes us.”
