About Our Class Action Law Firm

TIMOTHY D. COHELAN and ISAM C. KHOURY were admitted to practice in California in 1974. They are the founding partners of Cohelan Khoury & Singer, a civil litigation firm established in 1981.

Since 1987, Cohelan Khoury & Singer has specialized in class action cases and has been certified as class counsel on numerous occasions in state and federal courts throughout the United States.

The firm has a broad array of experience in prosecuting class action cases. The firm has achieved statewide recognition for pro bono public interest work including successful cases prosecuted on behalf of homeless persons in Hoffmaster v. City of San Diego (1997) 55 Cal.App.4th 1098.

Cohelan Khoury & Singer’s public interest work has been recognized in numerous cases including that of United States District Court Judge Milton Pollack, a Senior United States District Court Judge for the Southern District of New York, who has publicly stated that he had “seen no similar indication of a public service rendered by any group of lawyers in all the years I have practiced law myself, which is for 38, or the 27 years that I have been on the bench.” Judge Pollack’s comments came in connection with a class action case brought on behalf of victims of health insurance fraud.

The firm has successfully achieved a groundbreaking reversal of a class certification denial in the published case of Hicks v. Kaufman and Broad (2001) 89 Cal.App.4th 908. The firm participated as co-counsel in the highly anticipated California Supreme Court case, Brinker Rest. Corp. v. Superior Court.
