Lee M. Cohen, CPA

MANAGING PARTNER & FOUNDER OF L.M. COHEN & CO.

Lee graduated from New York University in 1993 with a degree in accounting. Upon graduation, he worked as a controller for a chain of retail stores where he gained invaluable business experience, which continues to help our clients because Lee understands what it means to be a business owner, not just an outsider looking in.

Lee began building his practice in 1995 while maintaining jobs at two accounting firms, where he became certified in 1999.

In 1999 he joined a mid-sized accounting firm as a partner, where he opened and successfully ran the New York City office of the firm. During that time, Lee gained experience in various industries doing financial statements, tax preparation, and other traditional accounting services. In 2006 he joined another mid-sized firm in New York City, where he was a prominent partner for four years until he ventured out on his own to start L.M. Cohen & Co.

Lee is actively involved in his community by serving as President of Sephardic Bikur Holim (SBH), one of the largest social services agencies in Brooklyn. 

Lee lives in Brooklyn with his wife, Lisa, and their four children.

Our firm has always been more than just a place to prepare tax returns or financial statements; it is our home away from home—a place where we build connections and foster the strong culture that makes me so proud to come to work every day.
