Susan Cohen

On the record
Represented by:

Susan Cohen is a nationally and internationally recognized immigration lawyer and a founding chair of the Mintz Immigration Practice, which she established when she was still in her 20s. Cohen led a team working with the American Civil Liberties Union of Massachusetts to obtain a temporary restraining order on the 2017 Travel Ban. In 2020, she led a Mintz team supporting efforts by many U.S. universities and hundreds of thousands of foreign students in litigation which overturned the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s controversial and dangerous COVID-related student visa policy. The Commonwealth of Massachusetts hired Cohen to help the state write the first-ever statute to help talented foreign entrepreneurs remain in the country on a special type of immigration visa to buy them time to get more permanent status. She is president of the board of the Political Asylum/Immigration Representation (PAIR) Project. When Cohen isn’t tirelessly working and advocating for immigrants and asylum seekers, she enjoys singing, songwriting, playing guitar and traveling. She lives in Massachusetts.
