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.

  • Cohn & Swartzon helped me to receive greatly needed medical care.

    “I was recently hurt in a really bad car accident. I did not have health insurance but Cohn & Swartzon helped me to receive greatly needed medical care. They also helped me get a replacement car quickly so that my wife could continue to drive to work while I was at home, getting better. I could not have done it alone, and I am very grateful to them.”

  • He was always available and always returned my phone calls.

    “It is my pleasure to recommend the law firm of Cohn & Swartzon. I was recommended to Jason through an attorney friend of mine who suggested that I see him because of the sensitivity of my case. I met with him and instantly saw the compassion and professionalism that was instilled in him. He took on my case which was an emotional and difficult one. He handled us with care, step by step, and I watched him fight hard in court and win. He was always available and always returned my phone calls. He was always straightforward and kept us in the loop. He was very informative. I will never forget what he did for our family. Two years later, I had another emergency occur in our family and he returned my call that evening and again took care of everything. I have recommended Cohn & Swartzon to family and friends and will continue to do so. They were there for my family when I needed them and the professionalism and expertise says it all.”

  • I am very happy with the level of service Cohn & Swartzon provided me with during my time of need.

    “I am very happy with the level of service Cohn & Swartzon provided me with during my time of need. I truly did not expect my insurance to cover my legal fees, but I am sure that Attorney Cohn and Attorney Swartzon wrote a great letter to them. I hope that I don't need an attorney ever again; but if I did, I would go back to Cohn & Swartzon. And I would definitely refer my family and friends.”

  • 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.”
