I’m Michael H. Cohen

I’m a comedian & lawyer

Michael graduated from Columbia University, UC Berkeley School of Law, Haas School of Business, and the Iowa Writers’ Workshop; clerked for a federal judge in the Southern District of New York; worked as an Associate in the Corporate Department at Davis Polk & Wardwell, a Wall Street law firm; wrote four scholarly books on law, medicine, and ethics; became an Assistant Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School with a joint appointment at the Harvard T. H. Chan School of Public Health and a Fellowship at the Center for the Study of World Religions, Harvard Divinity School; was Principal Investigator on an NIH grant; and founded the Cohen Healthcare Law Group.

Everything made sense … and then ….

That’s when his career went off the rails,” said Mom, “and he became a comedian!”

“Why is National Attorney Day only on a Leap Year?”
