“DVAP’s Finest: John Cohn”
John Cohn is a Partner in Thompson & Knight’s Tax Practice Group in Dallas. He has served as Thompson & Knight’s Pro Bono Chair, working with DVAP and other pro bono providers, for more than a decade. John’s first involvement in pro bono in his professional career was volunteering at the landlord tenant clinics at the Housing Crisis Center, an organization dedicated to preventing homelessness and stabilizing families, the elderly, and the disabled in decent, affordable and permanent housing. John has played a vital role in organizing Thompson & Knight’s staffing of this HCC clinic once a month for more than 20 years. He has volunteered with the organization for the duration of his career, serving in various leadership roles as a board member and as president. John also serves on the Dallas Bar Association Pro Bono Activities Committee, as well as its Community Resources Subcommittee. He promotes all types of pro bono work, but specifically focuses on landlord tenant matters, largely due in part to his involvement with HCC. Thank you for all you do, John!
