I highly recommend Louis

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.

Brilliant Mind and Excellent Communication

I had no idea how to even look for an attorney when I found myself needing one. Mr. Cosenza is the best attorney I have encountered, and I took a lot of time finding one. He is brilliant in matters of the law. He approached my case from every angle. I am so thankful he was my attorney. I started out knowing absolutely nothing about court related matters. He answered even my smallest questions and guided me through to understand what was best for me and my children. He was excellent in communication with quick replies. He will have all of my recommendations.

Attorney Cosenza at his craft

My journey with Mr. Cosenza began nearly 3 years ago when I contacted him about divorce proceedings. During our initial consultation he told me exactly what to expect and we discussed cost, which I thought reasonable. After retaining him as my attorney and finalizing my divorce, things became fairly intense during the negotiation of the property settlement; yet he was relentless and tenacious. In the end, we prevailed victorious and everything came together perfectly. Attorney Cosenza always responded in a timely manner to my many calls, emails and texts. He gave clear, detailed, rational explanations of what I could expect. His work on my case has been life changing, in the best way possible. I am forever in his debt.

He does his very best

Working with Louis Cosenza truly helped to make my very difficult emotional and legal situation feel much more comfortable as I knew his experience and expertise was there to support and guide me. He knows the law and he does his very best to use that knowledge to represent his clients in and out of the courtroom.

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.

Competent and Professional

The Cosenza Law Firm handled my case in a child support hearing where the family court system was not taking in account the shared custody of my children when determining support. My Consenza came to court with documentation and also Case law to support my claim. His preparation and expertise forced a redetermination of support and won my appeal. I highly recommend Mr. Consenza as I have dealt with other Lawyers in the past but the professionalism and attention to detail is what sets him apart. He treats your time like it’s as valuable as his time.


I did exactly what you're doing right now. Trying to find the best lawyer to handle your case by reading these reviews. You can not go wrong choosing Mr. Cosenza as your lawyer. Mr. Cosenza was the right lawyer for me and I'm sure he will be for you too. Mr. Cosenza was very attentive to all my concerns and needs. You will not be disappointed choosing him as your lawyer. We got everything we asked for/wanted. He's a great person to have representing you.


Louis is an amazing lawyer and worked extremely hard to get me sole custody of my children! I would recommend him to any parent dealing with a custody case!


Would recommend to anyone. He is easy, fast, and willing to explain how and what he is going to be doing for you. I had a lot of questions going in and he was willing to answer them whether over email or in person. I hope i will not ever need him again, but he is going to be the first one I call if i ever do.

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.


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 knowledgeable. 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 explained 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 recommend him to anyone facing marital or custody legal issues.


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.

Excellent lawyer

I hired Mr Cosenza to fight a grandparent visitation case I had been fighting this case for over a year within one month of hiring Mr Cosenza he won my case I will definitely use him for all my future business.

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 and I was amazed at his knowledge of the law he won my case and I will use him for any other cases in the future I was so grateful for his experience and patience he was amazing.


I am very satisfied with Mr. Cosenza’s services in my custody case. He was easy to talk to, and kept me well informed of what was going on with my case. I would definitely recommend Mr. Cosenza for family cases.

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.


Mr. Louis is an amazing lawyer and will go out of his way to help i love the help and determination he gave for my case.

Great and trustworthy!

I hired him to adopt my son and he was upfront and knowledgeable. Whatever I needed he was there. He made the process fast and easy. And very trustworthy.


Mr. Louis helped to get custody of my son. He was very knowledgeable, up front about fees, and realistic in goals from the case and what to expect should different scenarios happen.


Louis was a great lawyer to deal with. He kept me and my husband up to date with what was going on. He helped my husband and I with my husband adopting my daughter. I am very please with how he communicated and how he never made us feel like we didnt understand what was going on.


… I am very happy with the service received. Louis has gained my trust. I know he has my best interest at heart and he is concerned for my legal well-being. He has always been prompt to inform me of issues and he listens to my concerns. If you need a divorce attorney, I highly recommend COSENZA LAW FIRM.
