Woodmere resident rebrands his law firm


Avi Cohen, of Woodmere, founded A. Cohen Law Firm in 2015 after practicing more than eight years at Manhattan-based Kasowitz Benson Torres LLP. By bringing in Manhattanite Danielle Montalto-Bly as a name partner, the Valley Stream firm is now Cohen Montalto P.C. A Manhattan office will open in the summer that Montalto-Bly will lead.

The new law firm specializes in uncontested and contested divorces, child support and child custody matters, family law, personal injury law and commercial litigation. Montalto-Bly’s practice will focus on family and matrimonial law, particularly high-net-worth divorces, as well as child custody and child support disputes.

“I’m very pleased to have Danielle join us as a partner,” Cohen said in a news release. “She is one of the top family law practitioners in the industry, and I’m looking forward to how she will help strengthen and grow our family law practice.”
