Saar Swartzon

Palm Springs Injury Attorney

Born in New York, Saar Swartzon moved to Orange County, California early in life. He earned his B.A. in Political Science in 1995 graduating cum laude from the University of Southern California (USC) alongside a minor in Cinema-Television. While in attendance at USC, Swartzon and Cohn met as members of the Alpha Epsilon Pi Fraternity. Only three years later in 1998, he would go on to receive his Juris Doctor (J.D.) from Southwestern University School of Law. This is an impressive feat, as many legal professionals take much longer to complete their J.D., especially from such a prestigious school.

Swartzon was alongside the top of his class during his time in law school, while also winning two national trail competitions as a part of the Interscholastic Trail Advocacy team. He rounded out his student portfolio by also participating in the law journal as an editor. During this time, he covered a wide range of practices and interests, including employment law.

After earning his J.D., Saar Swartzon worked for a number of top-rated, highly-esteemed, and well-respected firms, in which he tried various high-value cases across several states. Following this experience, he decided to pursue his entrepreneurial passion while making a difference on behalf of victims of negligence or misconduct. As a founding partner at Cohn & Swartzon, P.C., with lifelong friend and colleague Jason Cohn, Saar Swartzon has dedicated his legal knowledge and practices toward personal injury cases. He holds dearly the belief that people in need deserve only the best legal representation and unshakeable advocates to stand up for their rights. This is the same ideology held by Jason Cohn, making the two an unbeatable duo. Mr. Swartzon has since helped obtain the 48th largest verdict in the United States as part of a three-man powerhouse trial team.

Personal Interests

Mr. Swartzon is a man of many hobbies, and he particularly enjoys anything related to automobile, including watching Top Gear and staying up-to-date on the latest supercars. He is also a Los Angeles Lakers fan, through and through.

Recent Reviews & Testimonials

  • It is a real pleasure to recommend Cohn & Swartzon!

    “It is a real pleasure to recommend Cohn & Swartzon! For personal, prompt and excellent service they can't be beat. They certainly took the stress away in settling my claim. I am so thankful to them.”

    Barbara M.

  • In addition to Jason and Saar, the entire staff always provided the utmost in service.

    “Let me begin by saying that I would recommend Cohn & Swartzon to anyone in need of legal advice. Both Jason and Saar are very personable and they provided a high level of service to me as their client. In addition to Jason and Saar, the entire staff always provided the utmost in service. One of the things that I liked was the fact that they stayed true to their word. They told me that they personally would take calls, if necessary. It was not very often that I needed to speak directly to them; but when I did, they were accessible. I appreciate the great lengths that they went to in working with an uncooperative doctor, who took a very long time getting a key report to them. They worked with the insurance companies and the adjusters, which took all of the unnecessary stress off of me. The Firm went to bat for me and we were successful in settling my personal injury case without going to trial. Saar was able to negotiate and reduce my medical bills, thus putting more cash into my hands. I was pleasantly surprised at the outcome, and the timing of the settlement couldn't have come at a better time.”

  • We ended up obtaining much more compensation than we ever thought possible.

    “I am very happy to recommend Cohn & Swartzon. My two young daughters and I were hit by a teenage driver whose vehicle flipped over our SUV. Cohn & Swartzon took care of everything, from dealing with my own insurance to educating me on the importance of getting top notch medical care. We ended up obtaining much more compensation than we ever thought possible. Thank you so much!”

  • They were completely honest, and offered great advice.

    “I highly recommend Cohn & Swartzon. When I decided to retain the Firm, I initially spoke with Attorney Jason D. Cohn. He was very knowledgeable and helpful in explaining what sort of personal injury case to expect. With the assistance of Attorney Saar Swartzon, Cohn & Swartzon were able to get me a $28,000 settlement. I was very pleased with the Firm's persistence and hard work. The attorneys always kept me informed about how my case was going, they were completely honest, and offered great advice. They listened to my concerns and needs, and always made me feel like I was a high priority client. Everyone at the Firm is very friendly and caring, both as one's legal representation, and simply as individuals. Thanks again!”

  • They made me feel comfortable.

    “I was in a car accident that resulted in injuries, time off of work, and repeated visits to medical providers. I sought the assistance of Cohn & Swartzon to assist me in recovering my lost wages and help with paying my medical bills. The firm was so friendly and really educated me about how auto insurance and medical insurance works when you're involved in an accident. They made me feel comfortable with the process and more importantly I never had to deal with negotiating with the insurance companies for any of my medical bills. I was able to recover my lost wages, my medical expenses were paid in full, and I received a very good recovery for my pain and suffering. I have definitely recommended this law firm to family and friends many times and they all have been pleased with their service, knowledge and expertise.”
