Character Bio

Sandy Cohen photo
Sandy, a lawyer, raconteur, and son of Sophie Cohen, is married to Kirsten Cohen. Their eldest child, Seth, is something of a social misfit. Sandy's father left his mother when he was young and he has an unnamed brother and sister. Sandy was originally a public defender, which brought him into contact with troubled teen, Ryan Atwood, whom he eventually adopted and took on as his own after his mother abandoned him. He has since then gone into private practice in a law firm, before going to start his own law firm and finally taking over his late father-in-law's company, the Newport Group. After Seth accidentally burned down the Newport Group headquarters, Sandy returns to the public defender's office. He and Kirsten have three children.
Throughout the series, Sandy serves as a moral center, often guiding and supporting Seth and Ryan, and at times love interests Marissa Cooper, Summer Roberts and Taylor Townsend, through their problems.
Just because you're leaving doesn't mean I'm letting you go.
— Sanford "Sandy" Cohen
