2017 Influential Woman of the Year in Law – Melissa Cohen

Melissa Cohen – Attorney and Managing Partner of Cohen and Sawochka

Melissa knows very well the struggle of women having to go above and beyond to prove themselves in male-dominated industries. She’s endured numerous gender obstacles as a woman in the courtroom during her career as an attorney. But it’s never held her back. In fact, the examples set forth for her by her determined mother and several important female mentors has enabled Melissa to become a role model herself.

Her persistence has led her to form her own law firm where she has the means to help people alter the trajectory of their lives in solving legal problems.
