We are passionate about making the internet a better place

We represent some of the most vulnerable people in our society.  Some of our clients have no means to pay for legal services. In many cases this is due to an internet related traumatic experience.

Whenever our we are approached by a client who a deserving case, we always consider ways where we can provide help and support.  Sometimes, we fund the cases, or part of of the work in the cases,  of vulnerable clients through an internal charitable account that we have created for this purpose. The charitable account is regularly topped up by income that we receive for work that we carry out for our more wealthy clients. 

In other cases, we agree to act for vulnerable clients on a no win no fee basis, which often involve carrying out substantial amount of work and the taking of a high reputation and financial risk on our part from the outset. We might also act for vulnerable clients by offering to work on a substantially reduced rates. 

Each year, we invest approximately £100,000 in free legal work and representation of our clients, which includes support to related good causes.

The Breck Foundation

The Breck Foundation

Breck Bednar was a 14-year-old boy who was murdered on 17 February 2014 in a flat in Grays, Essex, England after he was lured online to go and meet with a psychopath man who then murdered him. This is the worst nightmare of every parent.

Breck’s mother Lorin is a wonderful woman who established The Breck Foundation to raise awareness of online dangers and promote responsible use of the Internet among parents and children. Breck’s mother was a hands-on parent when it came to monitoring her son’s online activities. So much so, that at one point she contacted the police to alert them about Lewis Daynes, who eventually murdered Breck but the police did not take her seriously enough, or at all. Cohen Davis is very proud to be associated with the Breck Foundation.

For a number of years, our MD Yair Cohen was a member of the Breck Foundation Board of Trustees for a number of years and the firm provides regular donations to the foundation. Every financial contribution that our firm makes to a charitable organisation is made on behalf of our clients and through an allocation of a portion of each fee that that we receive from each of our clients. We thank all our clients for their kind generosity.

Big Voice London

Empowering a Younger Generation

We are very proud to be associated with this charity. For a number of years, Yair Cohen was a trustee of Big voice London and for a number of years Cohen Davis Solicitors has been making financial donation to this social mobility project. 

Big Voice London, is a social mobility charity which is very kindly supported by (but independent from) the UK Supreme Court. Through this highly motivating project, which has already touched the lives of more than 1000 young people, together with our clients, we do our bit to empower young people from disadvantaged backgrounds to take part in creating legal policy that will positively impact them and their peers, and encourage them to break through traditional boundaries and rid themselves of limiting beliefs that otherwise might hold them back from achieving their full potentials.

Big Voice London ‘Model Law Commission’ is one the projects which is particularly close to our hearts, involving a simulated law reform project inspired by a United Nation’s initiative that take place around the world. Sixth formers are given an opportunity to learn about the UK's legal institutions and to engage with cutting edge legal policy. The height of the project is the presentation to Parliament, by the students, of their final draft of new proposed laws.

In 2013 and 2014 Big Voice London's young students presented to Parliaments a number of amendments to laws concerning internet and social media, including a new Revenge Porn Law, which was later adopted by Parliament and turned into what is now known as the Revenge Porn Law under section 33 of the Criminal Justice and Courts Act 2015 (Disclosing private sexual photographs and films with intent to cause distress). 

Each one of us at Cohen Davis Solicitors is committed to contributing to our community by sharing our vast amount of knowledge of the internet and internet laws with the younger generation and to empowering people, whatever their background might be, to create a self-fulfilling future for themselves and for those around them.
