  • Should Online Abuse be a Criminal Offence

    Earlier this month, I spoke with Jason Mohammad at BBC Radio Wales following Katie Price's call to the government to adopt Harvey's Law, named after her son, who is the victim of horrendous, persistent abuse, to create a register of online abuse offenders. I was discussing with him how we rely on the laws of harassment for dealing with online abuse. The same laws that apply to offline activities also apply to online activities.

    The issue is that we have created two societies: the offline and the online.

    The offline society is heavily regulated with the police and the courts and the online society isn’t regulated at all. Although, we are now seeing a bit of a change in understanding that there aren’t two different societies and the effect of online abuse cannot be

    Being a sex worker and advertising yourself as such on the internet does not mean you can't have a private life, says judge as Cohen Davis obtains a privacy injunction for its escort client.

  • "I would like to express my gratitude for the service provided to me by Cohen Davis Solicitors. My initial consultation with Mr Cohen provided me with an essential and professional legal perspective with regards to malcious communications that I was receiving via social media platforms. From the point of me engaging the services of Cohen Davis I was allocated a named solicitor (Anna B) who worked directly on my case over a number of months until a resolution was reached. Her dedication to my case and professional advice was invaluable, particularly at times when it felt emotionally tough. I am so glad that I found this company of solicitors and would highly recommend them if you need help with stopping online harssment and malicious communications."

  • Cohen Davis solicitors welcome clients who wish us to take on their harassment cases on a no win no fee basis. Because of the high number of cases where volnurable victims experience harassment on the internet yet the limited number of solicitors who are true specialists in handling online harassment cases, we have developed a criteria to enable those who wish us to represent them on harassment cases on a no win no fee basis, to try and determine in advance whether their case is likely to be eligible for a no win no fee representation.

  • "When harassment occurs on social media we will obtain an injunction, anonymise our client and allow her to continue with uninterrupted use of her social media account."

    This can be particularly beneficial if you are a celebrity or if you depend on the social media account for work.
