“Michael is a real expert in healthcare law, able to navigate the maddeningly complex nuances among city, state, and federal regulations. But he’s more than a lawyer; in a way I find rare among lawyers, he’s also an entrepreneur and understands that entrepreneurs want to figure out how to get things done, not be told that the law doesn’t allow them to do things. There’s generally always a legal way to do something, and Michael knows how to draft your contracts, business model, and policies to make your idea possible.”
“Michael H. Cohen admirably pushes the frontiers of law, medicine, ethics, and health care policy. In an engaging, insightful, and provocative analysis, he opens a door to the future of medicine, thus laying the foundation for a regulatory framework that supports human physical, as well as spiritual, health.”
Words cannot express how grateful I am to Michael H. Cohen. Being a surgeon I am used to stressful situations but when dealing with legal issues, one really needs someone intelligent, efficient, experienced, with excellent attention to detail. I was so fortunate to have been referred to Michael. He made me feel comfortable and confident immediately. His skill and knowledge was impressive. His friendly and empathetic personality was priceless. I am very happy to report I won my case with a high 6 figure judgement in my favor. I am so happy and grateful to Michael for all his help and highly recommend him to anyone who needs someone amazing in healthcare law. Sincerely, Dr.Misra
Being located in Australia we required someone to help our firm understand the regulatory landscape for medical devices within the US. After researching several companies online we decided to engage Michael's services. I found Michael to be a very capable and extremely professional individual whom was always very pleasant to work with. In addition to helping us better understand the regulatory landscape in the US, Michael was also very helpful in providing referrals to other Advisers that we required at the time. I would be very comfortable in recommending Michael's services.
Michael Cohen provides timely and insightful legal counsel. He is an effective communicator and can be trusted with handling complex healthcare matters.
My business partner and I wanted to speak with someone who was well versed in the health and wellness industry and had an appreciation for the human side of medicine. When we read Mr. Cohen's biography on his blog, he seemed like a perfect fit. He appeared to be an independent thinker and understand the value of art in medicine, and his experience studying complementary medicine assured us he would be worth talking to. He did not disappoint! Mr. Cohen searched for ways we could navigate regulations, as opposed to dismissing our ideas as too dangerous. Mr. Cohen and Ms. Kirkpatrick were very personable, interested and non-judgmental people in my interactions with them
During the Legal Strategy Session, Michael was able to answer all my questions with a clear organization of materials. I was given insight and resources. He also told me about medico-legal issues that I didn't even know existed. This has been invaluable to my integrative medicine practice.
I would definitely recommend the Michael H. Law Group. I needed direction regarding the FDA and how the rules would affect my business. Michael was responsive, accessible, and knowledgeable.
Michael has a great ability to communicate his legal analysis. I needed know about FDA classification and get direction for both product development and insight into our marketing language. This saves us tremendous amounts of headaches with the FDA. His firm has great front-end customer service I give the firm a high recommendation.
This firm was very helpful in explaining Stark Law to me. I needed to understand this for my medi spa start up.
Crane Herb is creating Patient Analytics for Practitioners to track and report their TCM clinic data. I rely on Michael's expertise, communication skills and curiosity. My other lawyers have no experience in healthcare legal details. I don't want to waste my time and money educating them about my issues.
Michael and I worked together representing a physician-client in a highly emotional employment litigation matter. I know from working directly with Michael, and from speaking with our joint client, that Michael provides careful, thoughtful advice focusing both on the nitty-gritty details of complicated bodies of law, and on the big picture of what the client wants to achieve. Michael is calm in the face of adversity and maintains a positive, encouraging spirit that brings out the same in his clients (and his co-counsel). I cannot recommend Michael highly enough!
Michael's impressive credentials are only overshadowed by his clear awareness of practical strategies to help Physicians navigate modern healthcare and achieve successful outcomes.
At a recent Silicon Valley Health 2.0 forum, Michael participated on a panel of legal experts covering topics that are critically important to medical device/digital health entrepreneurs. Michael‘s role was to explain the complexities related to regulatory, compliance, labeling, 510k/PMAs, etc. which he did in an articulate and thoughtful manner tailored to the business leaders in the audience. His command of the subject matter was evident as the four other panel members would defer to Michael on all questions related to the FDA. Michael’s legal expertise, business insights and good natured manner are the characteristics any medical technology company would value in a trusted advisor.
I've twice consulted with Mr. Cohen regarding options for independent contractor relationships vs. employee and sub-leasing arrangements with other acupuncturists in my clinic, and both times he has been extremely helpful, thorough, and patient with my many questions. He was so prompt in his responses, he was often waiting for me rather than me for him--exactly the opposite of what I expect when consulting with an attorney! He has an excellent knowledge of health care law and his office is courteous and detail-oriented. I have no complaints and highly recommend his services.
Mr. Cohen is very knowledgeable in his field pertaining to healthcare, especially telehealth medicine. We hired him for our company to help produce contracts to different healthcare facilities. Our business is certainly growing because of his help and expertise. He's representing our startup company as the head of counsel. We would recommend him to anyone!
“Michael H. Cohen is a rare gem. He is genuine, has exceptional legal expertise and in-depth knowledge of the world of integrative medicine and healthcare. I refer clients and candidates to him knowing they are in the best hands.”
“We feel that your knowledge of the Healthcare law is unquestionable and we were very pleased with your expertise.”
“After burning through quite a few attorneys to help me with my business, I feel like I’ve finally found my guy. For the first time, I feel like I’ve found someone who’s not just churning me for fees. Michael truly has my best interest at heart. Plus, he’s a he’s great at listening to my legal needs and helping me navigate the complicated business terrain in an efficient, cost effective, and logical manner. I only wish I’d found him sooner.”
"I am a CFO and have used Michael to get insight on the proper way to set up some companies. He has a strong depth and breadth of knowledge and was able to guide me in the right direction. He is very personable and quick to respond. I would definitely recommend Michael and look forward to working with him in the future."
“I’ve known Michael Cohen since he assisted me legally in 2005. I have been consistently impressed by his knowledge and professional behavior. Michael is one of the most humane and sincerely concerned individuals I have had a chance to work with . I would recommend him as an attorney without reservations. I have nothing but the highest regard for Michael. He was forthright, honest and demonstrated a lot of integrity. He stayed within the bounds of our agreement with respect to costs and I know that he truly does support the practice of CAM. I would wholeheartedly give my recommendation to you.”
“I had the privilege to listen to several talks by Michael H. Cohen in the Middle East with over 2,000 participants, including the high representatives from the Ministries of Health of the Gulf States. Michael is remarkable in convincingly communicating the legal complexities of integrative medicine under unique conditions in a humble, joyful and intelligent way.”
“I heard Michael present the legal landscape of this very novel and unfamiliar area of health care to a ballroom filled with thought leaders from medical education and health care delivery systems, and was immediately impressed with his intellect and thoughtfulness. On that day he not only summarized the state of the law regarding complementary medicine, but also gave us a glimpse of what the future might hold for medicine.”
“Michael gave me the best advice and saved me so much time for my business! Not only is he extremely resourceful and knowledgeable, but he is the most friendly attorney I’ve ever spoken to!”
“…quite thorough and helpful, and I believe I can rely on your advice to proceed in practice with confidence and care.”
“Attorney Cohen has provided extremely thorough advice and document preparation for me in the formative stages of my new integrative medical practice. He was easy to work with and meticulous in all matters large and small.”
“Michael is one of the most intelligent people you’ll ever meet. Just look at his profile — multiple degrees, books, Harvard Professor, etc.! You would never know this right away by his kind, and modest nature until you ask. I see Michael frequently networking at events, going out of his way meeting with people and he is always there truly listening and thinking of YOU first.”
“Michael continues to be a nuts-and-bolts visionary in the field of Integrative Medicine Law.”
“I could not recommend a lawyer more highly. I consulted with Michael on a very complex business venture. He took the time to make sure that I understood the lay of the land, and went beyond the call of duty in addressing questions and concerns. Michael not only is wealth of knowledge, but a pleasure to work with. If you want a lawyer who not only has extensive knowledge of both law and business, but also truly cares about his clients then Michael is your guy.”
“Michael H. Cohen is one of the few attorneys I know of who brings his conscious perspective to legal matters. He understands that although people need to protect themselves legally, many of us want to do it in a way that’s both highly ethical and highly effective.”
“I never thought I’d meet an attorney I could actually have a real conversation with until I met Michael Cohen. He’s just got that human touch. And when you combine that with his impeccable professional credentials you get magic! Michael is the real deal.”
“You are shining a bright light in areas that are in such need of more heart-based thinking.”
“Michael, Just a quick note to thank you for the outstanding work you did for me regarding a national survey related to practice rights for dual degreed health professionals. The work was done in a timely and complete manner and is much appreciated.”
“I am a litigation attorney who has worked with Michael Cohen on several occasions. His knowledge and ability have greatly complemented my own, hugely benefiting my clientele. I feel fortunate that I can confidently refer to him matters that are beyond the scope of my practice, knowing the clients will get first-rate lawyering from a true gentleman whose great personal integrity is refreshing.”
“Mr. Cohen is an extremely knowledgeable and dedicated business lawyer who never ceases to amaze me. His passion is certainly the law, and he uses it to protect and help small business owners and anyone that may be in need. Michael Cohen is very very thorough in everything that he does when working with him.”
"I found Michael's law firm while researching the legal issues surrounding integrative and complementary practices. Our consultation was enlightening and informative. I believe Michael is the preeminent professional in this field. He is friendly, engaging and helps to narrow the conversation which makes for a very efficient consultation. I highly recommend Michael and his firm and look forward to working closely with him in the future."
Michael has been a great asset to my addiction treatment center. He has tons of insight and experience in the field of health care law. On top of that, he always calls back within a short time after my call. Highly recommended! Scott Kiloby, Director of the Kiloby Center for Recovery, Inc.
I consider Michael a ‘Guiding Light’ for those who serve others in healthcare. Not only does he have extensive legal knowledge and experience but, he is deeply intuitive and comes from the heart; he also understands the healing arts from the inside out (if you doubt this, I recommend his book A Friend of All Faiths.) Michael is the foremost attorney in the health industry. In every way, working with Michael is a superior choice.
We had questions about compliance. Micheal provided timely information and detailed regulatory updates. This saved us as we needed industry knowledge for a last minute presentation. It saved our department a lot of time. You guys are awesome!
Michael saved me time and money by providing direct and efficient help regarding MSO Agreements, Telemedicine, Fee splitting and Healthcare compliance. I really appreciated Ebony during the intake!
I received help with reviewing client contract, advice on whether to have a Doctor Referral letter, and advice on the structure of my business. Very professional, Michael was on time, he asked me what I needed and gave it to me. In fact, he gave me more than what I was expecting. I was amazed that all my questions were answered quickly and the client contract was reviewed and corrected within a short time frame which tells me that Michael has specialized expertise in what he does. I like that he understood my business, complementary alternative therapy. I really felt supported in moving forward and doing good work to help others. This field is tough already by the present system in place now but Michael knows how to navigate it. All is great now!
We needed help resolving a healthcare litigation case. Michael was compassionate, effective, and confident. He worked efficiently to get the case resolved. Everything was excellent and I give him a strong recommendation.
Michael was very knowledgeable, provided up to date information and I really like the e-newsletters as they have a lot of good information on pertinent issues. We like what you are doing and the way you are doing it!
“I had contacted a couple of local lawyers in the past, but they had very little understanding of the area of wholistic health education in which I work, and were clearly unable to offer me specific advice. Micheal on the other hand came from a position of extensive knowledge and understanding; his review and responses to my material [in helping me to review my disclosure and consent forms] was meticulous and uncompromising. This resulted in a total restructuring of my job description and a tightening up of potential problem areas. I now have a much clearer idea of the legal limitations to my scope of practice, and am aware of, and able to avoid potential pitfalls. I feel more secure, and my clients are more accurately informed at the outset. In addition, Michael was courteous and promptly responsive to my inquires throughout the process. Great service and great staff.”
“It is because of the work that [Michael H. Cohen] has done that we can be taking these continual steps toward a more stable foundation for our future growth. Everyone involved is excited and looking forward to opening.”
“Michael is a superb business lawyer. His keen intellect and skillful instincts helped our company navigate the complex waters of international contracts. Michael’s cogent, persuasive brief for our recent international mediation and arbitration was invaluable in securing our award. Michael is understanding, easy to work with. He gets the job done at competitive rates and with pleasing efficiency. We have confidence in him to handle our case; he gives valuable advice to the client.”
“For those of you who don’t know Michael, he is a great teacher and resource for dealing with legal issues in a comprehensive approach. His energy is full of foresight, grounded and open. It is always a pleasure to have his company.”
“Our company recently retained Michael and his firm and we’ve found his counsel and expertise to be invaluable. Michael is a true professional in every respect. He understands healthcare law inside and out and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for good counsel.”
“This is a wise attorney. When it comes to areas of the law pertaining to alternative medicine, medical ethics, healthcare, business law, government compliance, and the like, Michael literally wrote the book. He has many publications to his credit, and within 15 minutes of meeting him, his strong command of the subject matter and ability to listen and absorb will become apparent. With the advent of ACA, and all its complications, this is the lawyer to whom you want to turn for advice, compliance, and — God forbid! — litigation. One of the smartest people I’ve ever met. I consulted with him recently, and his good judgment, forthrightness, and looking out for my issues and long term gains will stand me in good stead.”
“Michael is not only knowledgeable, but responsive as well. He researches his facts thoroughly before giving advice and returns calls promptly. What a find.”
“I’m a business owner and have had dealings with many attorneys. But Michael is one of the only attorneys that truly had my best interest at heart. He is a genuine guy. He truly cares about his clients. There are a lot of jokes about attorneys but Michael is one of a kind. He goes beyond the call of duty and that’s what sets him apart from every other attorney. He has always been available and returns his calls promptly. I can always count on him and so can anyone. I highly recommend his services. .”
“As a wellness practitioner and consultant to other wellness professionals I understand not only the importance of niche services, but also the importance of expertise. Many practitioners do not understand the complexities of regulations and rules that govern their profession, including setting up an entity correctly, partnering with other health care providers (fee splitting no nos) and product sales in clinic and on line. Doesn’t that sound daunting? It is. I highly recommend Michael Cohen and his team of talented experts. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure applies to business just as much as it does health. Don’t be caught in need of correcting a problem, get it right from the start.”
“Michael H. Cohen is the embodiment of the enlightened, holistic attorney of the future. He is excellent – professional, thorough, sincere, ethical, erudite, kind, spiritual and efficient. Working with him I felt supported and protected. He looks at his clients in a body-mind-spirit way, and at their business from a practical success as well as personal fulfillment point of view. I highly recommend the Law Offices of Michael H. Cohen to anyone interested in receiving high quality, efficient legal services in a genuine and pleasant atmosphere.”
