Nicholas P. Kohan
Nicholas P. Kohan is a founding partner and trial attorney at Kohan & Bablove LLP. Prior to founding the firm, Nick spent almost a decade being hired by insurance companies and large corporations to defend claims made against them by injured people. This experience is the foundation and motivation for Nick, who uses the skills and knowledge learned during those years to achieve maximum compensation for injured persons from those same insurance and large companies. To that end, Nick often speaks to other plaintiff lawyers about litigation strategies focused on leveraging internal pressure points insurance and large companies have to compensate injured persons for their losses.
Nick’s transition from the “dark side” has been seamless. Nick earned numerous awards and accolades from the moment the firm opened, including consecutive Super Lawyers Awards, acceptance into the Million Dollar and Multi-Million Dollar Advocate Clubs, AV Preeminent Rated, National Trial Lawyers Top 100, Avvo “10 out of 10” Top-Rated Personal Injury Attorney and election to the Board of Directors of the Orange County Trial Lawyers Association.
Nick also earned multiple seven-figure victories and has a penchant for winning even the toughest cases. On multiple occasions, Nick has represented the families of deceased teenagers who died as a result of using illicit drugs. Nick went after the drug dealers and individuals providing a safe place for these young teens to use. These victories are in addition to the numerous car accident, premises liability, product liability, dog bite, and wrongful death cases Nick handles on a regular basis.
Being raised in an entrepreneurial household, Nick learned from a young age the importance of a client-centered approach to business and continues that practice every day. It is why the vast majority of the firm’s clients come from personal referrals rather than billboards or TV commercials. It is also why the firm handles every case the same way regardless of value—100% dedication to achieving the best result for the client.
Nick is an Orange County native who lives in Newport Beach with his wife and two children. When not working or spending time with his family, Nick enjoys playing golf, cheering for the Angels, and taking his dogs to the dog beach.
