What Clients are Saying

Bradley Birkenfeld - Largest Whistleblower Reward in History

“The only lawyer on my side was Steve Kohn. He was as smart as they come and feisty as a pit bull. Steve was convinced the government owed me a fat reward, and he was going to get it, or die trying.”

“An absolutely first rate lawyer. . . keenly interested in utilizing the law as a rational instrument of social change and improving the quality of life for the weak, the poor and the unpowerful.”

A. Leon Higginbotham, Jr., Former Circuit Judge, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit

“[Steve Kohn] is an outstanding person, with a very keen mind, a true gift for research, an extremely capable writer, and an eloquent speaker.”

Howard Zinn, Author, A People's History of the United States
Roger Wensil - A Client of Michael Kohn

“I want to try to express my feelings of gratitude for what you are doing for me, but I’m not sure that words will do the job . . . The bureaucrats almost won; not because they were legally right, but rather, because they have the power and influence to be able to crush any resistance . . . You are rendering a great service, not only to individuals like myself, but to our country a well.”

William Sanjour

“Steve Kohn is the nation’s outstanding whistleblower lawyer.”
