Zach Cohen represented me for a court matter recently. He is an outstanding lawyer who grasps the relevant facts quickly and can devise great strategies that deliver the expected result. I was very pleased with his knowledge of the Union County court system, the laws involving my case, and his responsiveness and thoroughness in getting a favorable resolution to my issue. This was a case ,as they say, 'of first impression' and it was handled favorably within 1.5 months. I've retained and worked with both criminal and civil attorneys in the past and present and I put him at the top of my list.
In January 2014, I was charged with an alleged criminal offense. The initial criminal defense attorney that I hired was not very interested in my side of the story or the facts of the case. After two months of trying to convince me that I should consider a plea and continuing trial dates, I quickly grew frustrated and knew I had to find somebody who was willing to step up and fight for my rights. Mr. Zachary Cohen was that attorney. When I met Mr. Cohen, I looked him straight in the eye and told him I was not interested in a plea and that I needed attorney who had confidence and was willing to take my alleged crime to trial if it was required. Mr. Cohen looked me back in the eye and said "we are going to work well together". I was immediately sold. Ultimately, Mr. Cohen delivered as promised. For anyone who is passionate about their innocence and wants an attorney who is willing to fight for their rights, don't second guess yourself and go straight to Zac's office.
I knew Zac's personality before I knew him as an attorney. He would come into my previous place of work--a local restaurant in Monroe--late in the day or early evening to eat. Every time he came in, he would make his rounds, talking to other guests and Monroe locals. I observed on numerous occasions how social, friendly, and well-spoken he is. When I asked others about him, everyone had great things to say about him and he was well known around town from his amazing actions in the courtroom. Most people referred to him as "the best lawyer Monroe has to offer." I am a hard-working college student and soon-to-be first-time mom, and I have never really had the need for a lawyer. In November, I totaled my vehicle and a court date was set to show that my insurance covered the damages on my SUV. I decided to represent myself, but even though I did this and it had been many months since I had seen Zac, he still took the time out of his long day in the courtroom to message me on Facebook and talk to me about my case. He was not concerned that I was not his client at the time, which showed me that Zac is a truly caring individual. This characteristic is a rarity because most of the lawyers I have dealt with by proxy were more concerned with making a large paycheck and would never take the time to reach out to someone who was not already paying them a large sum of money. This past week, I traveled out of state to visit family between semesters at UNCC and when I got here, I got into another wreck. This unexpected problem left me stressed out because my next court date is in a few days and getting back to N.C. so soon is nearly impossible. I contacted Zac for guidance on what I should do and he surpassed my expectations by offering to help and handle everything for me without me having to travel back to NC for court. With everything else going on, he has made my life a million times easier by giving me one less thing to worry about. If you are looking to hire a lawyer, your best option is hiring Zac Cohen, especially if you are looking for someone who cares about people, and not just "the bottom line."
Was given a court appointed attorney which was a bad mistake, a family member hired Mr. Cohen and got his case taken care with no hassle, very honest, came to court dressed very professional, kept all his clients up to date what was going on. After I saw how the family member got his case handled I hired Mr. Cohen immediately and truly satisfied with the end result with mine and my family members case. This man truly fights for his clients and what is right! You want someone that believes in you go and trust this man he is worth every dime! If I ever need an attorney again I will definitely call Mr. Cohen because that honesty helped me so much thru it all!
I live in Chicago my mother in Charlotte. I was pulled over over 9 years ago and given a court date. Never made it back. This obviously suspended my drivers license. Mr Cohen took this and ran with it and made a bad situation pretty damn good for me.
I was referred by a friend to Zachary Cohen to handle a speeding ticket, I had lawyers in the past assist me getting a ticket reduced or knocked down to a lesser offense. Zac was able to get my ticket taken care of with NO POINTS anywhere, and then when I got another ticket 2 months later he was able to do the same thing. Zac is a true professional who know's how to best help his clients. I will never go anywhere else.
Zac represented me after I received a speeding ticket. I am from out of town and wasnt able to make continuous trips back and forth to deal with this matter, one conversation with Zac was all it took. Zac is very professional, friendly, responds quickly, and definitely on top of things, after our conversation I knew I didn't need to worry he would handle everything and keep me informed. I would highly recommend his services to anyone I know.
When son received his third traffic ticket in 2 years, a police officer I knew recommended Zachary Cohen and I could not be happier! He was able to get the 3rd charge reduced to Improper equipment with no effect on license points or insurance points. This is a huge deal for a single mom with a child in college. I am extremely pleased with the outcome and have already recommended 2 friends to Zachary as well.
I hired Mr. Cohen in my son's behalf. My son was charged with multiple B&E's, larceny, possesion of stolen property... Zac continued to hold off on everything and convinced me time was of the essence and after 14 months of going back & forth with the DA and being able to show what could and could not be proved was able to take a possible conviction of 25-30 YEARS to a final showdown and ending of 26 MONTHS!!!! that is 2 years, 2 months. I and my daughter have struggled thru this entire meltdown with our family and the only thing that kept us going was this attorney. I will forever hold him highly in his profession and will tell anyone looking at this....if you want a really good defense...go someplace else....if you want a really GREAT defense with a positive outcome...go see Zachary Cohen! I He will get you the best possible outcome! Trust me! I saw it first hand and am forever grateful!
After three long, dreadful years of court - Mr. Cohen was able to end my case with a dismissal. I put every ounce of faith in him and it was well worth it. I was unsatisfied with my first attorney who represented me in district court but unable to prevail my case, so I made an appeal and hired Mr. Cohen; right away he took control. He represented me through superior and it was worth every penny. He always kept me informed via email or phone and his office was always able to keep me informed as well. I couldn't be more thankful for him and will be forever grateful! Highly recommend his services!
