With a wide range of cases to draw from, Sasha Kopf enjoys the challenge of working on several projects at a time for our litigation team. She focuses on a collaborative, not a competitive, approach that includes working with other partners and associates in the firm to home in on the strengths of a case, and listening carefully to clients to help them identify their goals, challenges, and options. The consummate researcher, Sasha’s investigative skills, meticulous attention to detail, and ability to craft exceptional legal briefs make her an asset on many types of employment law cases, real estate disputes, and commercial litigation cases.

Prior to joining Cohen Kinne, Sasha was a staff attorney at the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights and Economic Justice in Boston, where she specialized in discrimination cases, wage and hour claims, and education issues. She now represents clients in cases of discrimination, wrongful termination, and wage and hour complaints, and appears in state and federal courts and before the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination.

Sasha, who is originally from Northampton, moved to the Berkshires in 2014 and is a geocaching enthusiast. She is also a skilled knitter, and often makes crafts for animal-conservation causes. She is a volunteer for Community Legal Aid.
