Crumiller’s Senior Associate, Caroline Piela Cohen, is running for New York City Civil Court Judge in the 6th Municipal District. Here’s why she is the woman for the job.
I first met Caroline shortly after we both had our first children in the fall of 2012. We had both joined a “Ditmas Park Moms” group. I liked her right away and was happy to learn we were both attorneys in the same field.
Caroline is a genuine person, and you can tell right away that she has a kind heart. She’s warm and engaging; it makes her fun to be around. Soon after we became friends, I came to realize that she is also whip smart. I started trying to recruit her for my law firm way before I had the money to hire somebody. I knew she would be an excellent attorney: great with clients, direct and to the point, and a savvy strategizer.
I’ll never forget when Caroline finally reached out to me to ask if I still had a position for her. I ran over to my calculator and crunched some numbers. We had a deal within 10 minutes. I learned later that she had texted me from the bathroom in court. She had been in an uncomfortable position, where she felt pressured to move eviction proceedings forward against an elderly tenant and she felt like it went against her principles. She made a decision on the spot.
My instincts about Caroline’s excellence were 100% correct. She brings her A-Game every single day, both with her litigation skills AND the homemade baked goods she makes for the office (how on earth the woman has time for everything she does is a mystery). – Read More “Why Caroline Cohen is the Woman for the Job (Civil Court Judge, 6th Municipal District)”
