Lee M.Cohen, CPA


Lee graduated New York University in 1993 with a degree in accounting.  Upon graduation he worked as a controller for a retail chain of stores where he gained invaluable business experience, which continues to help our clients because he 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 he 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).  SBH is one of the largest social services agencies in Brooklyn. 

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