Here is a Five Star Google Review from one of Dan Rosenthal’s clients:

Firstly, this firm is very much worthy of praise and recognition. A dear friend was concerned about my overall wellness after seeing me go through some physical changes due to my duties as a casino employee.


Petro Cohen was absolutely the right choice to represent me in my worker’s compensation case. Dan Rosenthal was with me every step of the way in this very complicated and difficult case.

My trailer was being loaded with cargo, when I was seriously injured. Due to a lift operator error, a pipe fell on my foot causing major damage.


Dan Rosenthal and the Petro Cohen team were true to their word from the beginning to the end of my workers’ compensation case. Feeling neglected and humiliated by my past employer, Dan supported me and walked me through this arduous process.
