Judge Kyle S. Cohen was appointed as a Circuit Court Judge to the 20th Judicial Circuit on May 28, 2020. Judge Cohen began his service on July 9, 2020 and is currently assigned to Unified Family Court in Collier County.

Prior to taking the bench, Judge Cohen served as an Assistant United States Attorney in the civil division for the Middle District of Florida in the Fort Myers Office. As the sole civil division AUSA in the Fort Myers United States Attorney's Office, Judge Cohen was responsible for all aspects of any defensive and affirmative federal civil litigation affecting the interests of the United States within a six-county radius. On the defensive side, Judge Cohen handled many different types of federal civil litigation such as Federal Tort Claims Act (“FTCA”) cases, medical malpractice, employment discrimination, and bankruptcy.

Judge Cohen's affirmative work primarily consisted of fraud investigations and claims brought pursuant to the Federal False Claims Act (“FCA”). As a result of these investigations, Judge Cohen amassed over $384 million in FCA recoveries.

Prior to joining the United States Attorney's Office, Judge Cohen was an associate at Howrey in Washington D.C. where he was a member of the Global Litigation, Commercial Trial, and Insurance Recovery practice groups. He attended law school at Georgetown University law Center and is a proud graduate of the University of Florida for undergrad.
