As a native of Baltimore, Maryland, Attorney Cohen has been practicing here for over 20 years. She established the Law Offices of Kerri Cohen after working for 11 years for the State of Maryland in Baltimore City at the Office of the Public Defender as an experienced criminal defense trial attorney. She represented clients charged with serious felonies such as homicide, rape, robbery and drug charges among other crimes. Attorney Cohen has tried hundreds of cases before Judges and Juries in the Circuit Court, District Court and Juvenile Courts.

Attorney Cohen graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Arizona in 1998 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Journalism and English. Following graduation, she moved back to the Baltimore area and attended Law School at the University of Baltimore. She obtained her Law Degree in 2001 and gained hands-on experience while in law school working with the Family Law Clinic and also received her Certificate in Mediation. After graduation and awaiting the results of the Bar Exam, Attorney Cohen worked for the Honorable Judge John Philip Miller as a Law Clerk in the Circuit Court for Baltimore City. During her clerkship, Judge Miller handled one term of Family Law and one term in the Misdemeanor Jury Trial Courts. Clerking for the Judge is where her interest peaked in Family Law and Criminal Defense.

Attorney Cohen was admitted to the Bar in December 2001 and after her Judicial Clerkship, she was hired by The Law Offices of Mead & Flynn to head their Family Law Division. After a year, she entered public service for the State of Maryland and the Office of the Public Defender where she stayed for over 11 years until opening this firm in 2014.

  • Rates, Retainers and Additional Information
    I do charge a consultation fee, which is $350. I try to be extremely fair and provide a consultation/initial meeting free, however; I just can’t do free consultations because I would do them all day long and have no other time. Like all family law attorneys, I require a retainer to be paid prior to commencing work. A retainer is the money necessary to be held in escrow for me to get started on the case. For a contested divorce or custody case the initial retainer is typically around $7,500, this is adjusted based on the specific circumstances of your case. I charge $375/hour and you will be billed monthly only for the work completed and that money earned will be removed from the retainer in escrow and placed into my account. The money held in escrow is fully refundable at any time and certainly refunded if unused, for example, if the case settles. Let me know if you would like to set up a time to meet or if you have more questions.
