Cohen, 83, described his approach for handling celebrity divorces in a 2021 Insider story. He pulls financial papers, reviews his client's assets, and conducts a 90-minute initial discussion about "divorce psychology."

The lawyer remarked, "The bad part is destroying marriages." But we give folks a new start.”
