Mark R. Cohen, Esquire is a personal injury trial lawyer who devotes his law practice to zealously advocating for plaintiff-victims of child sexual abuse in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Mark represents victims of child sexual abuse in cases against the various Dioceses of the Catholic Church, other religious institutions, public and private schools, youth groups and centers, and other organizations. Child sexual abuse cases typically revolve around an institutional or systemic failure to protect children from child molesters, and the child molester’s leveraging of his or her position of power and authority to groom and sexually abuse the child. The injuries for these victims and survivors of sexual abuse are profound and Mark is determined to achieve justice for his clients.

In his over 17 years of private law practice, Mark has solely advocated for plaintiffs in catastrophic personal injury cases. Mark continues to advocate for plaintiffs in all types of catastrophic personal injury cases, including medical malpractice, premises liability, product liability, pharmaceutical products, and motor vehicle accidents. In particular, he has extensive experience and success litigating hundreds of medical malpractice cases involving the delay in the diagnosis of cancer, surgery, internal medicine, nursing, and cardiology.

Mark served as a judicial law clerk in the Superior Court of New Jersey, Cape May County, Civil Division, for the Honorable Joseph C. Visalli, J.S.C. (Ret.) during the 2005-2006 Court Term. Following his judicial clerkship, Mark joined Baldante & Rubenstein, P.C. where he has practiced as a plaintiff’s personal injury lawyer throughout the entirety of his private practice law career.

He earned his J.D. from Rutgers Law School in 2005. While at Rutgers Law, Mark was a Notes Editor for the Rutgers Journal of Law and Urban Policy, and he was a Henry J. Raimondo Legislative Fellow with the Eagleton Institute of Politics. He also served as a summer associate with the City of Philadelphia Law Department.

Mark regularly serves as an arbitrator in the Court of Common Pleas, Philadelphia County, Civil Trial Division. He also serves on the Eagleton Institute of Politics Alumni Committee. He is an active member of the Katz Jewish Community Center (JCC) of Southern New Jersey.
