Seth Cohen has spent his legal career fighting against discrimination and advocating for people whose civil rights and civil liberties have been violated or infringed.

The veteran labor and employment, civil rights and civil liberties attorney is Of Counsel at the Deuterman Law Group.

In this senior role, he represents clients in their labor and employment claims. He works closely with the rest of the DLG team to ensure that our workers’ compensation, Social Security Disability, VA Disability and personal injury clients receive the justice they deserve.

Before joining DLG, Cohen was a partner for 25 years with Smith, James, Rowlett & Cohen in Greensboro. He continues to serve as general counsel of the ACLU of North Carolina and as an adjunct professor at the Wake Forest University School of Law.

Cohen has considerable experience in civil litigation, civil rights and labor and employment law. He has also worked as a criminal defense attorney in both state and federal courts.

The Atlanta native earned undergraduate degrees in religion and journalism from the University of Georgia, where he graduated Phi Beta Kappa and magna cum laude. Before attending law school, he worked as a newspaper reporter, most recently at the News & Record in Greensboro.

Cohen graduated in 1991 from the UNC School of Law with highest honors. He was a member of the law school’s chapter of the Order of the Coif, an honor society.

He was admitted to the N.C. State Bar in 1991, and in 1997 he was admitted to the Bar of the U.S. Supreme Court.

After law school, Cohen clerked for Justice Henry E. Frye, who later became chief justice of the N.C. Supreme Court.

Cohen is a member of North Carolina Advocates for Justice (NCAJ) and the North Carolina Bar Association (NCBA). He has been recognized by Super Lawyers, Business North Carolina’s Legal Elite, and Best Lawyers in Americaã in Labor and Employment Law.

He lives in Elon with his wife, Stephanie Bourland, and their daughter.
