The Dealmaker's Ten Commandments puts you in the locker room with a pretty damn good coach: [author] Jeff Cohen. -- Steven Gaydos, Vice President and Executive Editor Variety I have worked with a most talented young Jeff as an actor and adult Jeff as an attorney.

The methodology he has developed with The Dealmaker's Ten Commandments is invaluable for any professional who wants to make an impact in their chosen field. -- Richard Donner, Hollywood Director and Producer Not only has Jeff been an amazing attorney, helping guide me through the labyrinth that is the business of Hollywood but now he gave me the gift of The Dealmaker's Ten Commandments. His amazing business acumen is a lesson for anyone trying to improve their skills in the art of dealmaking. -- Terry City, Vice President BuzzFeed In Hollywood it's all about the 'art of the deal,' and with that said, there is no greater artist in the entertainment industry than Jeff Cohen. You can have a good agent...you can have a good manager...but without an EXCEPTIONAL attorney who knows the steps to take to craft the perfect deal, you're gonna have problems. Not only does Jeff know those steps, but he created most of them! -- Brian Gott, Producer/Philanthropist-Chairman Starlight Children's Foundation
