Welcome to the surety and construction law firm of Jonathan P. Cohen, P.A. We are a Fort Lauderdale-based law firm specializing in litigation involving surety and construction matters in state court, federal court and arbitration. We assist a variety of clients in the areas of surety, construction, bankruptcy, and business disputes– always with the primary goal of protecting our client’s rights. We have a long and successful history of assisting our clients in the surety and construction law arena.
In the surety arena, our law firm handles cases involving contract and commercial surety bond disputes, including but not limited to payment bonds, performance bonds, bid bonds, license and permit bonds, and wage and benefit bonds. We assist our clients in obtaining collateral from financially vulnerable principals to secure any debt owed. If necessary to make our clients whole, we will file suit in court seeking indemnification or reimbursement of the amounts owed. Aside from litigation, we also assist our clients in the drafting of surety bonds to meet the specific needs of their construction projects.
In the construction law arena, our law firm provides expert representation in all construction related disputes. We zealously represent our clients in all phases of the litigation process, beginning in the pre-trial stages (with the goal of efficiently reaching a resolution before incurring the costs associated with protracted litigation) through to the post judgment and collection stages (when settlement is not a viable option).
We were provided with excellent legal services at a very affordable rate. Jonathan explained every step of the process in simple layman’s terms, followed through in a tight timeline and then delivered a positive outcome! Very satisfied!
