What Our Clients Say

Highly recommended

Mr. Cosenza represented me from divorce to child support and custody. He was well equipped and very knowledgeable. He also made me feel comfortable in both my presence and absence. I was afraid to begin the process of divorce but he told me exactly what to expect and everything worked out exactly the way he said it would. Hiring him was the best thing I could have done for myself.


Hands down the best experience I’ve had with a lawyer

I would like to start by saying I am from TX and my ex wife tried to file a judgment in LA. I contacted a number of lawyers that explained to me that this maybe a process that they could look into. I spoke with Mr. Cosenza with his 30 plus year of experience and he assured me this was not going to be a issue. He was very informative on the proceedings that where going to take place. He couldn’t have called it any better. There wasn’t even a need for me to travel to show in court. It is definitely worth a little extra to hire one of the best. I hope I hope won’t be needing his help again but if I do need another lawyer in LA. I won’t hesitate to contact him and he will be my lawyer again.


I hired Louis to represent me in my custody battle. From the start he was upfront and honest with me, if he said he was going to do something he did it and he never attempted to settle for anything less than what I was asking. He was not afraid to go head to head with opposing counsel which is what we ended up having to do. Thanks to Louis and his experience and knowledge of family law we won our case. I highly recommend Louis and will always use him for my future family Court needs.


Mr. Cosenza has done an excellent job getting my judgement enforced. He explained the legal aspects, and my options in clear, concise language. Each step of the way, he kept me informed, told me what i could expect, and what needed to happen next. I truly felt that he was my advocate, and cared about doing a good job. Also, his staff is friendly and helpful. I highly recommend this attorney.


Mr.Cosenza was an Excellent Attorney!

Mr.Cosenza was not the first attorney I met with, but he was the most knowledgable. I chose him because I thought he was fair, honest, and could get the job done. I was seeking a divorce and sole custody, and Mr. Cosenza thoroughly eplained my options and gave it to me straight about what I was potentially up against and how much it would cost. Throughout the process he kept me updated and informed, and I am pleased to say I got the judgement I was seeking and Mr.Cosenza charged a reasonable price. I would certainly recomend him to anyone facing marital or custody legal issues.



Louis Cosenza helped me with my child (infant) custody case in Baton Rouge. He is highly knowledgeable, HONEST, and was a great adviser. I received great education on what to expect from the entire process and more importantly how to prepare for each phase of the ordeal. His experience shined through at our deposition and in my opinion contributed to why were able to quickly come to an agreement with the very unreasonable opposing party.


I hired Mr. Cosenza to take my ex wife back to court for more custody of my child. He was very helpful throughout the process and was very honest. He was willing to work with me on the weekends and with my very busy schedual. Although the road was long in the end I was very please with the results. The amount of time I spend now with my child was more than I expected to have and my family and I are very grateful. He did a great job with getting me and my child what was deserving for the both of us.

I can breathe!

After years of feeling there was no way out, I’m free. Louis got my divorce and domicile custody of my boys. The moment I entered his office, I felt relief. He understood my problems and assured me not to worry. He was right, I had a few anxiety attacks, but each time he calmed me down (even when I couldn’t breathe in court once). He was there for me emotionally in a time that was very stressful for me. His gentle demeanor was just what I needed, his pit bull snare was just what my ex needed. Very professional, extremely knowledgeable, best experience ever.
