“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!
