I was charged with failure to maintain lane and a DUI while driving a rental car on 10/23/2014. I didn't have any prior charges had never been in trouble and I've never been arrested. I met with several attorneys regarding this matter and decided to go with Mr. Kohn after after meeting with him reading his success stories. I am so glad that I went with my gut. I hired him a week before my initial hearing date and the day of my court date he had everything worked out prior to me even arriving to court. He has great relationships within the courtroom and with the police department. He is well respected and reputable. He's extremely direct and honest about how he feels about a case and what to expect. I walked away without a DUI conviction!!! It was reduced to reckless driving and my license was not restricted of suspended. The fines the community service ect still have to be done but that's nothing compared to being convicted of a DUI...He was truly a Godsent!!!
After being arrested for DUI, speeding and a seatbelt violation in Forsyth County, which is notoriously hard on DUI offenders, I spoke with several lawyers. One flat out told me that there was no possibility of getting the charges reduced, despite my otherwise clean record and the fact that this was my first offense. While other lawyers were negative, condescending and outright rude at times, Larry was the complete opposite. From my first call with him, I knew that he was the best possible lawyer to defend me. His approach was systematic, thorough and, most importantly, effective. He knew exactly what steps to take and when to take them in order to strengthen our case. Meanwhile, he always had a worst case scenario backup plan in case things went south. Whenever I had a question or concern, he was responsive and prompt in returning calls or texts. In the end, Larry was able to get my DUI reduced to reckless driving, my speeding ticket dropped and my seatbelt violation reduced to just a $15 fine. This guy is the real deal. If you've been charged with DUI, you want Larry in your corner. In my case, Larry did what other lawyers told me could not be done.
Larry came to me highly recommended by a close friend who had his own DUI encounter. Larry was available to meet within hours of my DUI arrest. He thoroughly gathered all the details for my case, made me feel comfortable, and was very reasonably priced. Once we discussed my options, he followed up with my all my court fillings, and was able to reduce my case to reckless driving in only 6 weeks! I never lost my license and never had any question about Larry’s professionalism. Affordability and quality are rarely paired when it comes to attorneys, but Larry Kohn has managed to pull it off.
One of the most straightforward and honest lawyers I have ever met. Last year, I was a 20 year old college student working two jobs. Charged with possession of marijuana, which is a serious charge, misdemeanor or felony in regards to school, future employment, and criminal record, I was more than spooked. At the time, I did meet with another lawyer before Mr. Kohn who tried to tell me he could get my case dropped for a hefty fee. After meeting with Mr. Kohn, he informed that I was being ripped off and that there's no guarantee to get the case dropped. I told the other lawyer sorry and hired Mr. Kohn instead. He was always easy to reach, always thorough, well connected, and clearly well respected. Every time I had an interaction with any employee in relations to the court system, everyone commented on how I was in good hands and that Mr. Larry Kohn is very expensive. His price was very fair considering my charges were expunged. Very grateful to have met him.
I would strongly recommend Larry Kohn. He does not waste your time and will be very honest and straight forward with you from the time you meet him until the time your case is resolved. He was excellent at communicating and keeping me informed and updated with the details of my case. Also he was able to work the best possible outcome for my case and get it dismissed. Most importantly Larry genuinely seemed to care about my case and helping me to not only favorably resolve it, but to help me positively move forward from the experience.
Larry is quick to respond and genuinely does whatever he can to get you the best results possible. He was able to get me a very favorable outcome for my case/situation. He is very professional and told me exactly what he would do and how he would approach my case. It gave me the confidence I needed to stop worrying about the case. If you need someone that is knowledgable and will get results, this is your lawyer.
Larry Kohn, I am so glad God lead me to this lawyer, he cares about you and works hard for you and keeps you informed , he puts your trust back in lawyers , that it's not all about the money . Thank you so much. Call Larry Kohn if you need a friend in a lawyer.
I was referred to Larry's firm by a friend who had a similar case that he was able to resolve successfully. I would absolutely recommend Larry to a friend who may find themselves in the same unfortunate situation. Larry did a great job delivering a successful outcome in my DUI hearing. My case was one that lasted over 30 months from start to finish. From day 1, it was clear Larry was exploring every possible option that could work in my defense. He was able to use statements from the first hearing at the very end that helped me win my case. He did an outstanding job cross examining the police officer(s) and asking all of the right questions.
From my positive experience with Larry, we learned that Larry is agressive, he knows what he is doing and tells you up front the best and the worst case scenario's when working with him. Larry also likes to meet with you in person in advance so he can understand you as a person and not just another case.
My daughter was ticketed with an open bottle. My daughter is an extremely upstanding person and usually a thinker that does not put herself into situations like this, however this time she made a mistake. Following Larry's advise and his explaining that my daughter is an extremely upstanding person (and she learned her lesson) he was able to do his magic. With Larry's expertize he was able to have the ticket reduced by saving my daughter from having anything on her record. I would recommend Larry 10 out of 10 times if and when anyone needed a great lawyer.
Just to tell you that I am so grateful for your outstanding job, in helping my daughter with her DUI case. The fact that her charge went from DUI to reckless driving, have been amazing. Thanks to your expertise , her driver's license was not suspended either. She told me , you demonstrated to be a true fighter , an excellent litigator, extremely skilled in DUI law. Thanks to your staff and the other two lawyers Gus McDonald and Sam who also demonstrated to be very skilled and professional too . Your and their dedication in advising her of the different stages of the process was great. Thank you so much. I and my daughter really appreciate it. I will recommend you definitively.
