I was charged with destruction of property. Mr. Koehler was knowledgeable of charges against me and reasonably priced. He kept me informed during each step of the case and was able to get the case dismissed. Job well done.

In late October of 2013, I was charged with assaulting a police officer and possession of an open container. Within hours of being charged, I contacted Jamison Koehler. Mr. Koehler was very knowledgeable and as soon as he received the details of my case he explained my options to me. He was always on time or early whenever we had to meet or appear in court. With his extensive knowledge and experience of how the criminal justice system works, he was able to get the charges against me dismissed before the case even went to trial. I have no doubt that a less experienced lawyer would not have been able to obtain such a favorable outcome in such a short amount of time. I would highly recommend Jamison Koehler to any individual seeking a criminal defense attorney.

Mr. Koehler was thorough and knowledgeable from the very start of my case. He took the time to explain the laws, and how they applied to my charges. I was in a panic before we first spoke, but after our initial consultation, I knew I was in good hands.
As the case progressed, Mr. Kohler kept me up to date and informed and as my trial date drew near, Mr Kohler was a pitbull when dealing with the prosecution. He was able to get all charges dismissed. Now I do not have to spend the rest of my life worrying a blemish on my record, thanks to Mr. James Kohler.

"If you run into a Pot/DUI charge in DC or VA and need a great attorney...LOOK NO Further.
You found the heavy-hitter you need to keep your record clean---ATTN. Jamison Koehler.
A seasoned-pro who is known on a first name basis throughout the downtown DC Courts, Mr. Koehler is the one of the best, most efficient/effective Lawyers I've ever met. Apart from being very affordable (considering the15-20hrs he spent on my case--Mr. Koehler's rate is $2,500 flat), Jamison is a really nice guy who treated me as a person he cared about helping--not just another client w a marijuana poss. charge.
He was diligent, highly-attentive to my case, tremendously quick in all correspondence, and always responded to any concern I had sameday, almost always within hours. Once I received a email from ATTN. Koehler @11:30pm following up on a matter he helped me w during a 8am meeting that day---he really followed through w/for me.
To top it off...Mr. Koehler went ABOVE and BEYOND what most other attorney would do. He went to bat for me w regards to a community service matter, pro-bono provided counsel on a separate entire issue that happened while he was representing me on the charge in DC.
My charges were dropped...because of ATTN. Jamison Koehler.
Don't make the mistake of hiring someone else to represent you.

I would like to take this opportunity to personally thank Mr. Koehler for the incredible legal service he provided to my 19 year old son. While visiting a DC monument during a recent vacation my son made the unfortunate mistake of forgetting to take out his pocket knife prior to going through security. He was immediately arrested and charged with possession of an illegal weapon. Being completely unfamiliar with the legal system in DC made for a nightmarish experience from the time of his arrest to the point when we returned for our son's arraignment. Though he was afforded a court appointed lawyer, it was quite clear that the system was overburdened and without quality and devoted legal assistance my son was going to be pushed through the system and would never be given an opportunity to defend himself.
Contacting Mr. Koehler was the absolute best decision we could have made! He first explained the judicial process and possible directions this case could take. He took the time to speak to me and did so with the highest professionalism and compassion. This was all done prior to him even taking the case. His fees were reasonable and given his expertise and timely responsiveness to my questions we felt confident in securing Mr. Koehler's legal representation.
Once Mr. Koehler was on the job he immediately went to work and literally within a week or two had the charges dropped! The weight of this distressing incident suddenly vanished and in its place was a deep appreciation for everything Mr. Koehler was so swiftly able to accomplish. We know without a doubt the ending to this would have looked much differently had it not been for Mr. Koehler's knowledge, expertise, professionalism and perseverance. Mr. Koehler did an outstanding job working with us long distance, maintaining excellent communication and support for my son.
Do not hesitate to contact Mr. Koehler if the need arises for defensive legal support. We are thoroughly impressed and you will be too!

I had never been in any sort of legal trouble until couple years ago when I was charged with a serious offense that would put me in prison for many years if convicted. After researching qualified criminal defense lawyers, I was fortunate to come into contact with Mr. Koehler.
During the initial meeting, Mr.Koehler was very patient and sympathetic when I told him my side of the story. He explained the due process procedures and answered all the questions that I was unsure of.
The case went on for another year and half because of the government investigation and proceeding. Mr. Koehler and his investigator contacted many witnesses and prepared them to testify on my behalf. Mr. Koehler also filed a number of motions to help fight the case. Thanks to Mr. Koehler's hard work, we got an offer on the eve of trial that we could not refuse. Not only were the two felony charges dropped, I will also come out of this whole experience without a conviction on my record.
I highly recommend Jamison Koehler.

When I contacted Mr Koehler, he did everything I expected of a lawyer. He also added a personal and caring touch to the case. He really did his homework prior to coming into court. He was always fully prepared. He also gave great advice as to how he believed the case should be handled. One of the best things I can say is that he was never a hungry money person. Every penny that was spent was worth his services. If I had to chose a lawyer today, I would chose Mr Koehler again. I fully recommend him to anyone. Mr. Koehler also made sure that we were informed of how he was planning to proceed throughout the case and he also listened really well as to what input we had and gave us advice in regards to our input. Again, I am very thankful Mr. Koehler was our lawyer.

Mr. Koehler took a very tough situation that I was going through and instantly put me at ease; I got the results that I wanted and never felt worried about my case because Mr. Koehler was always on top of everything pertaining to the case. He was very easy to talk too and very easy to understand and to work with. I very highly recommend Mr.Koehler, he is a great lawyer and actually knows what he is talking about which is hard to find at times in the legal field.

Mr. Koehler provided very knowledgeable and effective representation to my son in a controlled substance possession incident. He thoroughly reviewed the evidence, fully explained all the available options giving positives and negatives of each, he pursued several opportunities to discuss the case with the prosecution, was able to get the prosecution to agree to an acceptable pleading, and admirably presented a pleading to the judge that resulted in an expected and mutually agreeable result. We were impressed with his thoroughness, willingness to put in time after hours, and the ethical behavior that he exhibited. We would highly recommend retaining his services relating to similar situations in DC Superior Court.
