Sean M. Kohl
Consumer, Foreclosure Defense, and Civil Litigation Lawyer
Sean M. Kohl is an accomplished Ohio and Pennsylvania attorney with a diverse background representing small businesses and consumers against the abuses of the banking and mortgage servicing industry. Too often big law firms and large national banks do not treat local small businesses and consumers fairly. Sean strives to even the playing field in his practice by providing individualized and practical representation to each of his clients based on their unique needs and circumstances.
Sean is an Eagle Scout and grew up in a blue-collar Ohio factory town where he learned the value of hard work, honesty and respect – values not often shown to small businesses and consumers. Sean received his undergraduate degree from Bowling Green State University and his law degree from Western Michigan Cooley Law School graduating cum laude. Sean worked part-time as a high school teacher and securities regulator for the State of Michigan to put himself through law school where he received national recognition for his litigation skills – specifically in moot and appellate court competitions.
After law school Sean worked in the oil and gas industry for Oklahoma City based Chesapeake Energy. At Chesapeake, Sean collaborated with Ohio and Pennsylvania landowners to cure and clear oil and gas title to help explore and develop the Utica and Marcellus shale plays. Sean transitioned to corporate law and litigation by accepting a position at Vorys, Sater, Seymour and Pease, LLP. Sean acquired a great deal of complex business litigation and regulatory experience during his time as a lawyer at Chesapeake and Vorys. However, Sean’s true passion is helping people. Big national banks and mortgage companies often hold many unfair advantages over their customers, and Sean fought hard to combat those abuses at Doucet & Associates Co., L.P.A.
Sean wanted to offer personalized and vigorous representation to small businesses and Ohio consumers so he and his business partner, Timothy Cook, established Kohl & Cook, Law Firm LLC. Sean’s current practice focuses primarily on mortgage foreclosure defense, consumer protection, and civil litigation combating the abuses of debt collectors and mortgage servicers. Sean also advises small startup businesses as general counsel.
