A horrible chain of events led to my house getting searched by detectives who found marijuana plants. I was quite sure my life and career were over. I consulted with a few top attorneys and Jill was the only one that made me feel at ease while also having a complete understanding of the legal avenues that lay ahead. Her experience as a prosecutor was incredibly valuable as it provided a more holistic view of the legal landscape that awaited. It was obvious to me she was very well known and liked amongst the legal community, which helps not only in cultivating relationships but was one of the elements that made me feel so comfortable in what could have been a very dire situation. Many months later I have put this whole incident behind me and am very happy with the results Jill was able to bring to the table. It turns out that neither my life or career were affected and for that I am incredibly grateful!

Jill is one of the most knowledgeable and efficient attorneys I have ever worked with. She communicates on a very timely basis in a straightforward and sensitive manner. I would whole-heartedly recommend Jill.

Excellent ! She was courteous, informative, & sympathetic with me, which is what you want when you speak to a prospective attorney. All attorneys should follow her example, and am truly grateful for consulting with her. Thank you, Jill !

i was arrested last November by Brookhaven Police after being stopped on Lenox road. After managing to post a $20,000.00(thank you Jo and ma) quickly enough to avoid my probation officer from placing a hold on me, I knew I needed to find a special attorney. I was already on probation in dékalb county and with Brookhaven Charging me with 4 counts of possession and intent to distribute my case was bound over to dékalb county superior court. I went and visited Jill at the Cohen law firm and immediately felt better about my situation. I retained her on he spot and she went to work immediately. After coordinating with my probation officer and the prosecution, Jill was able to get my bench warrant repealed and my probation reinstated without me having to visit jail again. That in itself was worth the retainer but she wasn't done there. Upon reviewing the evidence and reports the officer made, Jill discovered something askew. I humbly arrived to court for a hearing regarding a motion to suppress which is a formal request that illegally obtained evidence be barred from the trial. At the hearing the arresting officer was present and Jill was like Tom Cruise in a few good men. The main difference was instead of the officer being honest he simply showed us that he can't handle the truth! Following the motion to suppress being granted, my case was dismissed because without the illegally obtained evidence the D.A. Couldn't prove me guilty. And to top it all off, my probation officer said I was done with my probation and there wasn't any need to have a hearing about it! To anybody seeking justice and m attorney in the Atlanta metropolitan area, set yourself up with a consultation immediately. Thanks again Jill and Andy!

I cannot say enough about Jill. She is one of the most helpful people I have ever met.
When I needed a consultation on a recent issue my SO and I were facing, she was right there every step of the way. She was quick to answer emails, phone calls and handled our situation quickly. I would definitely recommend her to my family and friends for their needs.

First off let me start by saying that Jill Is not only an excellent attorney- she is genuinely a loving and compassionate woman of honesty who fights diligently on her clients behalf. About 2 years ago I found myself in the wrong place at the wrong time and ended up facing Felony charges!! It seemed like my entire life was going to end- and I became very depressed. I called several attorneys and they only made matters worst; but that all changed once I called Jill. I told her about my case and rather than try to Persuay me with scare tactics- she told me not to worry and that this was not the end of the world. She wasn't judgemental, and I could tell immediately that she was a good person just by our initial phone conversation. When I hung up the phone I knew I had chosen the right attorney- and my search stopped there.
She fought for me passionately and never accepted anything less than a favorable outcome for me - and her efforts definitely paid off because in the end she prevailed!! Yes - I am very happy to say that My case was ultimately dismissed!! There were 9 co-defendants on My case and out of all of them I am the only one who had case dismissed. Of course you cannot attribute this to anything other than excellent legal representation. I would recommend her to anyone and if I was to ever be caught up in the wrong place at the wrong time again I would certainly not hesitate to contact Jill. She is my fairy God Lawyer for life and I'm so glad I found her!! Not only was she an amazing lawyer - but she turned out to be a great friend as well! You know the kind you just can't help but too give them a big hug when you see them.

I can not recommend Jill highly enough. From my first contact with her she inspired nothing but confidence, and once our day in court arrived it was obvious that it wasn't misplaced. Her courtroom demeanor was relaxed and friendly, yet efficient and entirely professional. She was by FAR the most prepared attorney in the room, and had obviously worked diligently behind the scenes to secure the best possible outcome for me. The result of her effort was a ruling that was positive far beyond what I had dared to hope; a true feat of courthouse virtuosity. She is clearly someone who cares deeply about and advocates doggedly for her clients, and I know that I couldn't possibly have found someone better. Throughout my entire ordeal she kept my well informed and promptly updated, AND she is super cool and fun to talk to. Don't think twice, HIRE HER!

Jill was very down to earth and easy to talk to. She responded to all of my emails in a timely manner and she kept me updated as the case progressed.

Jill has been the only attorney I have spoken with that actually cared about the the legal trouble I was having, and helped me to the best of her ability. Unlike most of the attorneys I spoke with, that just expected me to come up with a large amount of money to retain a lawyer, somehow, some way, she advised me to the best of her knowledge, what I could do to try to help my situation. I appreciate the information she has given me and would feel very safe to have her as my counsel if I could afford her.
