According to the New York State Unified Court System, Michael Dean Cohen (registration number 2484806) was disbarred on November 29, 2018, as ordered by Appellate Division 1st Department.
Cohen, who graduated from Thomas M. Cooley Law School in 1991, was admitted to the New York bar on June 24, 1992. He says he had been working as legal counsel for Donald Trump since 2007.
Michael Cohen was one of many lawyers who represented me (unfortunately). He had other clients also. He was just disbarred by the State Supreme Court for lying & fraud. He did bad things unrelated to Trump. He is lying in order to reduce his prison time. Using Crooked’s lawyer!
