I was charged with leaving the scene of an accident. I have used Larry before in a case and couldn't have been happier with the outcome. So I went back with this violation and we talked picked the route that sounded good for me and him. He kept me well informed throughout the whole case of what was being done, very knowledgeable and professional while dealing with his cases. He got my charge of leaving the scene of an accident reduced to failure to maintain lane. Got to keep my license, kept a bigger charge off my record. I Would recommend him to anyone and will continue to use him. (Hopefully I won't have to though).
I live out of state and I was working in Atlanta when I was arrested for a DUI in Cobb County. I was not given a field sobriety test and I refused the breathalyzer at the police station and requested a blood test instead. I was never granted a blood test. After the arrest, my brother, who is an attorney in Atlanta, insisted that I immediately call Larry Kohn to represent me. Larry specializes in DUI cases and he is known among other attorneys as "THE BEST" at his job. I met with Larry the day after my arrest extremely scared at what had happened to me. He quickly put me at ease and shared with me the process and the various outcomes that might happen. He took the time to learn about me, my background, and the arrest. I was so confident in Larry's experience, 'track record' with DUI cases, and the strong recommendation from my brother that I hired Larry on the spot. I work in sales and it is critical that I am able to drive for my career, so a DUI conviction would have dramatically impacted my career and future. Larry gave me a list of things to do prior to my court date to be proactive. Community service, detailed written account of the arrest, alcohol assessment evaluation, involvement in MADD program, etc... Being proactive with these items helped him show the court that that I took the situation seriously, and was committed to following through with the requirements. Larry was relentless in his efforts to get my charge reduced to Reckless Driving. I was scared that I was not going to be able to avoid the DUI conviction and that I would lose my job. Larry has an excellent reputation with prosecutors and judges and is highly respected. As a result of his tenacity, Larry was able to get my DUI charge reduced to Reckless Driving, AND my license was not suspended for refusing the breathalyzer. I was amazed that he obtained the result he did, and I am incredibly grateful for his persistence, hard work, and patience to not give up on my case. If you are in the unfortunate situation of having a DUI charge, DO NOT hesitate to hire Larry Kohn to represent you. The entire process has been costly and time consuming, but not having a DUI on my record is 100% worth it. Thank you Larry for saving my career!!
Mr. Kohn, provided the best services you can receive from a lawyer. He went above his duty to address our issues in a proffesional and timely manner. Would be insame not hire him. He provided the peace of mind my family needed.
Best of luck to him and his law firm.
I received a letter in the mail saying that my license had been suspended because of a super speeder ticket that Georgia DDS had received. However, I only had a normal speeding ticket so my license should not have been suspended. After making multiple phone calls to the court and other attorneys, Mr. Kohn was able to assist me by offering advise and giving me suggestions on what I should do. After following his advice, I was able to sort out the mess and reinstate my license. On top of all of this, he provided me with these services for FREE! Mr. Kohn is a very understanding man and I would recommend him to anybody who is dealing with traffic issues in court.
This is my second post for Mr. Kohn. Mr. Kohn had been very down to earth from the start. He made the effort to explain everything at a level i can understand, and left me with the feeling that he would stop at nothing to do the best for me. When he represented me in 2003 for an offense that could have had 45 year sentence attached to it(previous post), he told me when it was over we would come back to clear it all up. After completing everything the court had asked me to, and still on probation i had contacted Mr. Kohn about a possible termination of remaining sentence. Mr. Kohn again made me feel like I was a priority. Long story short, in 2014 everything has been cleared and i actually feel as if i have made a friend more than hired an attorney. I would recommend Larry Kohn to anyone.
Larry Kohn exceeded my expectations and more. I have never felt more confident in a lawyer before as I did with Mr. Kohn. He was always available to answer my questions and most importantly, he was trustworthy and gave me honest opinion which I appreciated very much. For sure, the best lawyer I have ever hired. Thank you for all your hard work!
I was in Dekalb Recorders Court last week on a charge of no drivers license. I do not have a license and can't get one. This could have caused a huge problem with my immigration status.
I didn't have an attorney and could not qualify for the public defender. I saw Mr. Kohn representing others well and asked if he would consider representing me on such short notice - the same morning.
When I explained my situation to him he immediately grasped the problem and how it could affect me. He agreed to help me immediately for a reasonable fee and he went right away to talk with the prosecutor on my behalf.
The outcome was much better than I had hoped for (the case was dropped) and I'm very grateful to Mr. Kohn for what he did. I recommend him highly for anyone in a similar situation. He was a life-savior for me.
I appreciated his immediate response and after hours meeting when I told him of my situation. He took the time to genuinely listen to my side and then presented a couple no of B.S. scenarios. Hard to take all in at once but he explained them all in a very personable way that I left feeling that I was in very good hands. After that he acted quickly to get my case resolved as soon as possible with the best possible outcome. He was always available to answer any questions I had, no matter how small. In the end, he actually got the case resolved better than what I expected. The whole process was scary to me but I could always count on him for a sensible answer to put me at ease. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone.
I will be forever indebted to Mr Kohn for the outstanding legal counsel he provided me. I am employed in a very white collar profession where high moral standards are obligatory. I was arrested for a DUI which could have easily resulted in termination had I been convicted. Mr Kohn told me the outcome he thought he could obtain and any contingency plans, without promising or guaranteeing anything. By the way, beware of any attorney that can "guarantee" you a certain outcome .... s/he is either immoral, lying, or both. Mr Kohn instructed me to do 40 hours of community service, attend DUI school, and obtain a substance abuse evaluation prior to my court date. Doing these things helped project a responsible image with the court and likely helped secure the deal that I ultimately obtained. I basically got the DUI reduced to wreckless driving and a fee of $900, which I ended up not having to pay because I had already paid a bond which exceeded this ... so I actually got a refund! There was no probation. When I left court that day, I was liberated from all of my legal troubles and was able to wipe my hands clean of everything. I could not be happier with the work Mr Kohn did for me and the outcome he achieved. I would enthusiastically recommend him without reservation! Hopefully I will never again require his services, but if I do, I will undoubtedly return to him!
1. CASE: I received a school zone speeding ticket with a fine of over $1K and a potential to accumulate points on my record.
2. VERDICT: Larry was able to reduce my speed to make it a non-reportable offense and reduced the fine by 75%.
3. CONCLUSION: Larry is the man! He was very responsive throughout the entire process and has a great rapport with individuals in the industry. He provided me with his personal cell phone number and responds back within minutes to any request. If you're ever in trouble, Larry is the man to call.
