Former client
I hired Jonathan to defend me in a DWI case two years ago. I was terrified, embarrassed and overwhelmed. I was treated with compassion and understanding. You will be very clear about your options and understand the potential outcomes. He is a very detailed oriented person which is exactly what you want if you’re in a similar situation. He found a minor mistake in my arrest report and I was able to keep my license while we fought the case. This is very rare. He also was able to get me a plea of reckless driving, again rare. If there is anything to argue on your behalf he will find it and make a well thought out defense. Pay the extra money and hire the best.

DWI & CPM
I was arrested for DWI in June 2018. I was also charged with a misdemeanor for criminal possession of marijuana. The next morning after my arrest I felt anxiety like I never had felt before. I consulted the internet to find top quality local representation and stumbled upon this website. After reading reviews for all of the top listed DWI lawyers I decided to call John Cohn's office and schedule a consultation. I had not made up my mind about John yet but after speaking with him during my consultation I had no reason to look any further. John was very realistic with me and didn't make any false promises. He informed me that my case was not very good due to my BAC of .15% being right over a legal benchmark of .14% in which the DWAI plea is much easier to obtain. As well as my high BAC it certainly didn't help my case that I had a criminal possession of marijuana as well as video recorded admission of guilt. John exercised every legal avenue possible to get me a plea for DWAI and avoid going to a hearing but due to the details of my case the DA's office wouldn't budge. John kept me informed every step of the way through phone calls and texts and was very reassuring and very adept at calming my nerves when I would get nervous or anxious. John kept my expectations for each and every court date very realistic and represented my on his own when he didn't think my presence was required. When the date of my hearing finally came around I was beyond nervous. I had never been to a hearing before let alone as the defendant. The hearing was very nerve-racking as I sat through the DA's direct examination of my arresting officer. As this examination went on I felt worse and worse about my chances. My taped admissions of guilt as well as other embarrassing things I said on the body cam footage coupled with the fact that a friend of mine had just been convicted of the misdemeanor DWI charges that he was charged with had me feeling defeated at this point. John then got his chance to cross examine my arresting officer and in that cross examination alone John proved that he was worth every penny. John picked apart every single detail of my arrest as I watched in awe. Never having witnessed a hearing before this cross examination was really incredible and reminded me of things I had seen on T.V. John was able to point out numerous inconsistencies from things on the arrest report and in the body cam video to the officers answers on the stand. He brought up each and every mistake the officer made in following the proper steps in making a DWI arrest. He asked the officer many question that forced him to disagree with things he had just said when being questioned by the DA and that conflicted with things on the arrest report. John painted a picture of how I was unfairly graded on certain aspects of the field sobriety tests. He really showed me that he does his homework and examines every detail to create problems with the states case. John put on a show and by the time the cross examination was over the DA was immediately ready to offer me a plea of DWAI with no interlock requirement and a dismissal of the CPM charge. The DA as well as the judge and everyone else in the courtroom had something to say to John about what an amazing job he did. Everything changed so fast from me feeling defeated to getting a better plea than I ever hoped for. John had informed me that he was excited to bring my case to a hearing and I didn't understand why until I saw him in action. He was so overprepared for my case and that really shows that he is not only a professional but also cares about his clients. I am so pleased with the representation I received from John and if anybody is to find themselves in the unfortunate position of having to seek legal counsel for a DWI, I would advise them to schedule a consultation with John Cohn and let him work his magic.

Don't go anywhere else!!
Jonathan educated me on the laws, the process and potential outcomes. He got me the BEST case scenario and I wouldn't recommend anyone else. He knew all the laws, players and angles for the case. You are making a mistake if you don't hire this guy.

Rest assured, you found the finest attorney.
Jonathan is the crème de la crème in legal representation of alcohol-related offenses, that is a fact. Beyond that, he is kind hearted & empathetic when you are at your lowest, straight forward, whip smart, and calculated. Do whatever Jonathan advises, and it will be the best possible outcome that it can be.

Strong Legal Representation: Simply the best
I had the privilege of retaining Jonathan D. Cohn as my attorney for a recent alcohol-related offense, and I couldn't be more satisfied with the exceptional legal representation he provided. Mr. Cohn's expertise in criminal defense, particularly in cases involving alcohol-related offenses, is truly remarkable. From our very first consultation, it was evident that Mr. Cohn was not just an attorney, but a dedicated advocate who genuinely cared about my case. His attention to detail and commitment to upholding my rights under the law were immediately evident, which provided me with a sense of confidence during a challenging time. One of the most impressive aspects of Mr. Cohn's representation was his in-depth knowledge of the legal nuances surrounding alcohol-related offenses. He took the time to explain the intricacies of my case, potential outcomes, and the best strategies for a successful defense. His ability to demystify complex legal jargon and provide clear, understandable guidance was invaluable. Throughout the legal process, Mr. Cohn's communication skills were outstanding. He kept me informed at every stage, promptly responding to my questions and concerns. This transparency made me feel involved and reassured that my case was in capable hands. Ultimately, thanks to Mr. Cohn's expertise and dedication, my case had a favorable resolution that exceeded my expectations. I cannot express enough gratitude for the privilege of having Jonathan Cohn as my attorney during this challenging time. His unwavering commitment to my defense, combined with his comprehensive knowledge of alcohol-related offenses, makes him a top-tier criminal defense attorney. I wholeheartedly recommend his services to anyone seeking exceptional legal representation in this area of law.

I highly recommend Jonathan David Cohn!
I was arrested on Memorial Day on my way home from a barbeque. My BAC came back as .06 and I was charged with a DWAI. I contacted a few different attorneys for quotes and consultations. Mr. Cohn was the only person that sounded genuine and took the time to answer my questions without sounding annoyed by my ignorance. I hired him as my attorney and he did not let me down! There was open communication and we went over the evidence in great detail. He discovered that I had done very well during the field sobriety test and I asked the officer many questions while in custody, which showed that my speech was not slurred. He asked what I would be satisfied with if we had to take a plea deal. I said that I just don't want my license or insurance affected! He presented the evidence and told them that the case was very weak and that they'd have a hard time proving intoxication if we took it to trial. I was offered a plea of Disorderly Conduct. Mr. Cohn and I had a conversation and we weighed out the pros and cons. He said if we did turn it down and take it to trial, the decision would ultimately be up to the judge and I'd run the risk of being found guilty. I said I was very comfortable taking the deal! He spoke to the prosecutor and they both recommended the lowest possible fine. Thank goodness I didn't fight it! The judge was very fair but said he would not let me slide with the lowest possible fine because my offer was generous enough and I should have consequences. I do not have to worry about the price of my insurance increasing and there are no points on my license! I cannot thank this man enough! If you're reading this, it's probably because you need someone to represent you... This is the man for the job!

Jonathan David Cohn "One of a Kind"
My name is Peter, and when i retained Mr. Cohn we both understood that there was no guarantee my case was going to have a positive outcome, but my confidence was high. Jonathan never once let me down, and always kept me informed about this case, even on weekends or evenings he would take the time to make that all important call and keep me updated on my case. He is professional, compassionate, and dedicated to his clients. I would refer his services to anyone who thinks their situation is hopeless, he will make you a believer. For lack of a better term, Mr. Jonathan Cohn is a Rock Star in his field!! Make no mistake this man will get the job done.

Very diligent and devoted advocate - a miracle worker
I had a ny case but am based in California- had too many points in my license & dui w/ certificate of release- which ny state issued but refused to honor- without exaggeration it took 3 years to get a copy of a piece of paper I already had… because of a 60 day issuance rule it voided my 2009 certificate- a new stamped certificate copy from the court wasn’t accepted- the date had to be in the box instead of a cover sheet even though it was authentic -one would need a Time Machine to accomplish it. But Jonathan helped with the point reduction and reissued certificate-for over 3 years but I have my CA license due to his diligence and hard work. I wish I had him as counsel for my original conviction… I would definitely advise a consult with him - even if you already have representation. Best choice out there.

There’s still hope by using Johnathan
In 2017 I was charged with Aggravated DWI in Albany County. It was my 4th since 1997. It would be my 3rd in NY, plus one out of state. I was caught dead to rights. I have a CDL from another state which I reside in, and my job is dependent on me having it. NY has a 3 DWI’s in 25 years, and you lose your license for life. Theres a 2 “serious” traffic offenses with a CDL no matter the state, you lose it for life. Needless to say the emotions/scenarios running thru my head were awful. I was thinking about the future, and the fact I wasn’t going to have one anymore. I ran across Johnathans firm on AVVO. He didn’t have many reviews at the time, but they were all excellent. People spoke highly of him as a person, and his ability to deliver great results. We met the next day, which was Easter Sunday. I explained what happened, told him about my past, and the need for my CDL for work. Johnathan didn’t judge my past. He was well spoken, driven, polite, upfront and very confident. He said he couldn’t guarantee me anything, but that he would do his best to help me out. His honesty, personality, and meeting me on Easter without hesitation, is why I hired him on the spot. I felt he truly cared, and if anyone could help me, it would be him. We came up with a plan to move forward and eventually have a trial. I wasn’t interested in taking a plea, because I couldn’t lose my CDL, it scared me more than going to jail. We decided to ride it out. I was able to keep working in the meantime. At arraignment I plead not guilty, and forfeited my NYS driving privileges upon conviction. I was able to go home with my home states license valid. Johnathan was able to get it so I didn’t have to come to NY again for my court dates, except one, where Johnathan questioned the arresting officer. I’d listen closely, and watch him work. Johnathan was clearly well respected within the court house. He is calculated, intelligent, and a master at his craft. I was confident in his ability’s, and his all around DWI knowledge. I knew he would represent me well come trial, but that I had given him nothing to work with. Johnathan is quick to return calls, texts, and emails. He was reassuring every time we spoke, and was generally concerned on how I was doing. Johnathan gave me plenty of notice If I needed to come to Albany, so that I could make arrangements to get there. At some point maybe a year or so in, I was offered a plea deal. “DWI, with no probation or jail”. It’s a pretty good deal that I was appreciative of, but I could not accept it. I couldn’t lose my CDL for life. Little did I know “riding it out” would last over 5 1/2 years. With Johnathan doing what he does, a lil help from COVID, and the courts being shut down this thing was on hold. There was no jury trails being held, and this was all good news for me. I was mentally a disaster, but I was driving, not in jail, and still working. I was saving up for what I thought would be my new life as a bum, after I was undoubtedly going to be found guilty, and eventually lose everything. One of the few things that kept me sane when feeling hopeless, was reading Johnathans reviews over, and over. There were many more added over the years, praising his work in the court room, and for the plea bargains he was able to achieve for people. A few weeks ago I heard from Johnathan. They negotiated a new deal which I couldn’t believe, and gladly accepted. A miracle thru my eyes, and those few people I’ve told about my situation. NO DWI… (Reckless Endangerment, a breathalyzer in my vehicle, and the standard DWI requirement classes etc). I kept my license, career, and have my NY driving privilege back. Johnathan even sent me the info I needed to sign up for the court mandates. I can’t thank Johnathan enough for what he did for me. You’re an amazing person, and I am forever grateful to you.

Excellent Defense Lawyer
My name is Mark and I lost my Driver’s License 48 Years ago. I tried to get it back and wasn’t able to. My wife hired Jonathan and he is one of the most honest, dedicated and hard working Lawyers, I now have the pleasure to know. Due to his hard work and persistence, he miraculously was able to overcome my New York State DMV denial and I now have my Florida Driver’s License without restrictions. I highly recommend Jonathan as he is the best at what he does!

Smart, Caring, Empathetic , With Moral Principals & Integrity
Jonathan D. Cohn is an ethical, wonderful Lawyer. His hard work has restored my husband’s driver’s license after Thirty Five (35) years! He studied his record and found a flaw that he could work with . He was able to get one (1) DWI overturned!. The NYS DMV removed the “Denial’ and gave him permission to get a restricted license. Luckily, we live in Florida now and he was able to get his Florida Driver’s License without restrictions. In my opinion, Jonathan is the best lawyer in the country! I can’t say enough about his life changing work! Thank you again, Jonathan!

Jonathon D. Cohn is a criminal defense attorney with the Gerstenzang, Sills, Cohn & Gerstenzang Criminal Defense Law Firm. They are a group of former prosecutors and district attorneys but more importantly, they are people who care about their clients and how the outcome of every case affects their lives. Throughout the course of my defense, Jonathan encouraged me at every turn that he would do everything in his power to ensure a positive outcome, and he certainly delivered. The recommendation I received to retain Jonathan to defend my case was very valuable to me, and I hope this review can change someone's life as it did mine.

I worked with Jonathan on my DWI arrest last year. I was charged for DWI in Saratoga while visiting the region. This was my first ever traffic offense and I was overwhelmed the day after with no clue on how to proceed. Me and my wife searched for criminal attorneys in the region. After reaching out to Jonathan, he patiently explained the next steps and the possible outcome in detail. We did speak with a few other attorneys through referrals, but based on our initial conversation with Jonathan and his approach towards the case, we decided to hire him. The best thing about working with Jonathan is the ease of communication. He is easily available over the phone and text and available to answer all possible questions. He is always clear and realistic about the options and possible outcomes before I made any decisions to the case. Jonathan also understood the impact of this case on my immigration situation, and tried his best to identify the best possible solution in the timeline i was working with. Not being from the Albany region, Jonathan worked seamlessly on the case and i only had to be present at the court twice. He was finally able to get us a favorable deal ,the best we could think of in our situation. Jonathan makes your really comfortable and he is very patient with his clients. Would highly recommend him !

Truly gifted lawyer
Years ago I got into a very low place and made a very poor decision. This lead to an arrest that could have caused extreme hardship in both my personal life and my career, fortunately for me though I was able to find Mr. Cohn for legal consultation and retain him as my attorney. Words can not describe how professional Jonathan was throughout the process to get me the best possible outcome and help me get my life back on track. From every court appearance, the probation process, through all of it he was in consistent contact every step of the way. He soundly advised me on what to do to help me make the best of it and do everything right to keep me on the right course. I will give my utmost regards for him and his ability to navigate the legal system in a professional and meticulous manner.

Whenever I speak to any of his clients, they are always extremely grateful for how hard he fights for them and the successful outcomes he achieves. I am lucky to have Jonathan as a colleague and could not endorse him with greater confidence."

Relationship: Supervised lawyer
"I endorse this lawyer. I have known Jonathan Cohn for several years. I first met him when he was a prosecutor and we litigated cases against each other. He was a very tough opponent, always well prepared and ready to proceed. His work ethic, combined with his honesty and professional ethics, impressed all the attorneys in our office. We, ultimately, offered him a position in our office, and he is now representing our clients as diligently as he once prosecuted them."
