Cohen & Winters regularly appear in Family Division courts across the state helping with divorce, post-divorce, and parenting disputes.

Meet Our Team

The entire focus of the Cohen & Winters team is helping good people who find the need for legal help, often for the first and only time in their lives. Jonathan and Andrew both started practicing as as public defenders in 1999, where they each defended hundreds of criminal cases for people who couldn't afford a lawyer. This community oriented work as creates a bond. Later, in 2009 they partnered up, providing dedicated services to their community and throughout the state.

Together, Jon and Andrew defended one of the most notorious murder cases in the history of New Hampshire.

Since joining forces, and establishing a New Hampshire law firm, Jon and Andrew have expanded their practice to other areas where they can help people in need. They are known as New Hampshire personal injury lawyers who fight to see that victims of car accidents and other forms of negligence get fair compensation. They also regularly assist people who have the misfortune of going through a divorce or custody battle, and helping create estate plans for clients who want to make sure their affairs are in order.

Cohen & Winters has assembled a crackerjack team of New Hampshire lawyers and professionals devoted to their mission of high quality legal work for real people. This includes Attorney Elroy Sequeira, who gained significant trial experience as a public defender in Minneapolis before joining the firm. While defending criminal cases of all types, he is becoming a top New Hampshire DWI lawyer. Also on the team are Kristin Crossland and Mary Gaiser,  high level New Hampshire family lawyers who represent clients going through divorcce and custody disputes.

There are many New Hampshire lawyers. What sets Cohen & Winters apart?

"We represent individuals, not businesses," says Andrew. "That was an intentional choice. While we have had the opportunity to practice corporate law, making big money billing hours for faceless entities, that wasn't satisfying to either of us. There's no connection with the client that way, nothing to motivate you to push yourself the hardest."

"Working as a team is what we are all about," Jon says. "We subscribe to the motto that 'the whole is greater than the sum of our parts.' Nobody here has an ego. We just want to get the job done. It's that philosophy that sets us apart."

In addition, Cohen & Winters is known for its high level of technology. This includes a proprietary client management system that allows attorneys and support staff to quickly and securely access client information,  whether in the office or working remotely. This allows the firm to more efficiently serve clients.
