Cohen, most recently a partner at the law firm of Schertler & Onorato LLP, previously served as an Assistant U.S. Attorney in D.C. from 1997 to 2003.

“Vince Cohen is an extremely talented attorney who has the unique ability to assess a case from all the different angles,” Machen said in a statement. “He understands the gravity of the decisions we make and how they affect the lives of the residents of this city and he is committed to strengthening the bond between our office and the community. He will be a tremendous asset for the District of Columbia.”

Cohen replaces Channing Phillips, who served as Principal Assistant U.S. Attorney from 2004 through 2009. Phillips left the U.S. Attorney’s office in May to take a newly created position at Justice Department headquarters as Deputy Associate Attorney General for Diversity.

The 39-year-old Cohen, who attended Syracuse University for both undergrad and law school, was recently named one of the “Nation’s Best Advocates: 40 Lawyers Under 40″ by the National Bar Association.
