Wayne has been seen on television, spoken on radio, and written about in newspapers and magazines. The Washingtonian Magazine featured Wayne in several printings from 2001-2015, and characterized him as one of the city’s most feared personal injury lawyers, Washington’s top trial lawyers, Washington’s best lawyers, the best 50 lawyers in Washington, and Washington’s top 40 lawyers under 40. Mr. Cohen has been a guest on the following news and television programs:

  • NBC

The Washington Examiner called Mr. Cohen a “prominent, personal injury lawyer” in 2006, and was named in The National Trial Lawyers Association’s 2008 Top 100 Trial Lawyers in Washington, DC. He was also named as a Super Lawyer in Washington, DC from 2011 to 2016.

Wayne discusses contingency fees, and how his clients are not responsible for legal fees until their case has been settled or won. Providing contingency fees enables injured people to get the legal assistance they need during a difficult time. Working on a contingency basis sets personal injury lawyers apart from others, compared to family or criminal cases.
