Despite being the subject of a criminal investigation surrounding his business dealings, Michael Cohen appeared casual and composed while being photographed around New York this week.

On Friday, Cohen was seen spending time with a group of friends and smoking cigars.

Cohen was photographed outside the Loews Regency Hotel on Park Avenue in New York City on Friday.

Check out how Cohen spent his afternoon after a tumultuous week:

Cohen reportedly took a moment and told the gaggle of photographers to send some of the pictures to his mother.

Meanwhile, Cohen’s own attorneys were due in court, as they tried to prevent the Justice Department from examining Cohen’s files that were taken during the raid. Federal prosecutors said they went through with the raid without a subpoena because they believed the material “could have been deleted without record, and without recourse.”

US District Judge Kimba Wood appeared to take exception to Cohen’s absence in court: “Your inability to answer these questions suggest to me that your client Mr. Cohen should be in court with you next time,” she reportedly told Cohen’s attorney.
