Leslie Howard, Esq.
Leslie Howard, Esq., is the Founder and Managing Partner of Cohen Howard, a law firm dedicated solely to representing out-of-network providers, to increase their reimbursements from commercial insurance companies and third-party administrators. Being in the trenches every day with the insurance companies, combined with her expertise in ERISA and state healthcare law regulations allows her to be nimble in overcoming the insurance industry barriers faced by providers today. She is a member of the New Jersey and New York bar for over 25 years.
A graduate of Fordham Law School, Leslie has worked in various niches across the law industry from an associate in the national insurance litigation law firm Anderson Kill Olick & Oshinsky to real estate and immigration before discovering her true passion for healthcare law. This passion derives from her desire to help right injustice, an ambition she has had since her early days of visiting the municipal courts with her father. She cites her own personal battle with insurance companies over her son’s health conditions as the profound moment she knew she needed to champion for change. Her flair for risk-taking and disregard for failure is seen in her drive to advocate for providers nationwide.
Aside from her business, her greatest life achievement is her two children, Jonathan and Alexandra, whom she shares with her loving and supportive husband of over 20 years, Matthew. She resides with her family in Little Silver, New Jersey. In her spare time, Leslie enjoys both singular and group exercising and physical activities as well as reading inspiring nonfictional journeys of people who have had to overcome great odds. A self-proclaimed “adventure seeker,” Leslie loves to try new things and seeks the company of those who enjoy adventure and laughter as much as she does.
