Jason A. Cohen

Jason Cohen is a Partner in Borton Petrini, LLP’s San Diego office. Originally from the Washington, D.C., area, Jason graduated from George Mason University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in philosophy.

He relocated to San Diego in 1995 and obtained his Juris Doctorate degree from the University of San Diego School of Law in 2001.

His practice as a San Diego attorney focuses on civil litigation, and he has handled a variety of types of matters over the course of his career, including personal injury, insurance coverage, employment, maritime/admiralty, construction defect, and business litigation.

Jason has been accumulating significant trial experience, having tried to verdict both a criminal and a civil case prior to graduating. Experience at both the San Diego Public Defender’s office and the University of San Diego’s Civil Clinic prepared him well for the practice of law with the Firm as a San Diego attorney where he has tried to verdict numerous civil jury trials.

Jason is a member of the State Bar of California and the San Diego County Bar Association. He is licensed to practice before all California state courts, the California Supreme Court, and the United States District Court for the Southern District of California. He is also the coauthor of employment and personal injury articles and a regular presenter regarding a variety of practice areas and litigation techniques.

Jason hones his public speaking skills by performing stand-up comedy throughout Southern California. When not zealously representing his clients, Jason can be found enjoying the waves of Southern California’s beaches, rolling jiu-jitsu under the tutelage of black-belt instructor, Nelson Monteiro, playing guitar, riding San Diego County’s back country on one of his motorcycles, or spending time with his family.
