In 1994, Cohen married Ukrainia-born Laura Shusterman. They have two children. Samantha Blake Cohen is the Cohens’ daughter, and Jake Ross Cohen is their younger son.
Fima Shusterman, Laura’s Ukrainian father, introduced Michael Cohen to Donald Trump, according to longtime Associated Press reporter Seth Hettena in his book Trump / Russia: A Definitive History.
Laura Cohen’s parents reportedly co-own property in Trump Tower in New York City with the Cohens.
Michael and Laura amassed a fortune by purchasing taxi medallions in New York City.
As a result, the pair is said to owe the Metropolitan Transportation Authority tens of thousands of dollars in back taxes.
Since the Mueller investigation into the Russian interference in the 2016 United States election started, Shusterman and her two children have been subjected to harassment, insults, and threats.
