The move to Bashore Green Law was a good fit for both parties, said Cohen, who is excited to be joining a mid-sized, growing law firm serving southeastern Michigan.
“I’m proud to have joined the Bashore Green Law Group,” Howard said. “I have a great respect for the work they do and the care they and their staff provide each and every one of their clients. I also love that they have an office in downtown Pontiac and are very supportive of local community news and activities.”

“Howard is a true professional both as a lawyer and a person and I am happy to be working with him directly,” says Kevin. “He brings a wealth of experience in a number of specialties that will further augment our firm and the types of work we can provide for clients.”
