Satisfied!
I must say my situation for me was very traumatic but Mr. Cohen practically held my hand and walked me through everything from my first hearing to my last and then he also continues to stay in touch with me currently. I would recommend him and actually use him for any legal case I may have in the future. Thank you Adam !

I really appreciate that you took the time to leave feedback.

I am glad that it worked out BUT a large part of the result is that you followed and exceeded all of my suggestions. Congratulations and thank you again.

Would Recommend to Anyone!
Adam was a great lawyer for me considering that I've never been involved with the law and was scared half to death about the turn out. I was charged with serious theft charges that placed my liberty and employment in jeopard, and Adam was able to get the judge to grant me the best case scenario. Even when he was naming his price, he took my financial situation into consideration. I would highly recommend Adam to anyone looking for a lawyer!

Response from Adam Cohen October 16, 2019
Thank you very much for sharing your feedback. I truly value all of my clients input. I am always sensitive to the reality that these cases are very SERIOUS and LIFE ALTERING for the client even though I have been handling them for over 23 years. I never lose sight of the fact that just because the case is intellectually manageable by me, does NOT eliminate the STRESS, FEAR, ANXIETY, etc. that the clients experience from the moment they are charged until the day of trial. That motivates me to work hard and to communicate every step of the way. I am glad that we got a great result and that you are back on track. Thanks again !!!!!!!!

HE WAS THERE WHEN I NEEDED HIM THE MOST
I was arrested and charged with a serious crime and my entire life was turned upside down. I found Adam and he immediately took control of the case. He treated me like family and I was able to communicate with him whenever I needed. He made me feel safe and took a lot of the stress I had away. He was on top of my case from start to finish, including getting the charges expunged after he convinced the State to drop them. You heard that correctly. He got my charges DROPPED ! I highly recommend him for anyone in need of an attorney.

MD Hit & Run
First I would like to thank everyone who made their honest review of Adam in this thread. With no personal knowledge or connection to any legal advisor you guys are my saving grace. I chose Adam and I never went wrong. I trusted solely the review here and thank God I did. I have been charged here in MD for fleeing the scene AKA Hit and Run. No Injury just damage to a car. I fled the scene because I didn’t see any damage. That is my defense but the million dollar question I can’t answer and kept beating me up “ Why did you left if you didn’t see any damage when you are there to shop? Charged with 3 citations with fines up to 1500 with maximum 6 months jail time, my life just turned upside down. Long story short I hired Adam to represent me in court and just prayed to God I made the right choice. I loss a lot of sleep it really put so much stress in me. I have never got in trouble with the law before and i would never wished this to anyone. The moment I hired Adam he started working on my case. He is always on top of things. I was able to get back on my feet and just left everything to Adam and he managed everything efficiently. On the Trial Day he presented my defense in the best possible way. Blow up pictures of the damage from the insurance company was presented to the state attorney. The pictures said it all you won’t see the damage unless you are in an angle to see it and the damage looked quite invisible in daytime rather nighttime. He did compare and contrast the pictures. But again the million dollar question comes up again and all I can say is I don’t know I panicked. Adam negotiated a very good outcome for me lowering down my case from a criminal violation to a traffic violation with a $50 fine. You can say I am lucky but Adam’s tactics are just awesome. Also he don’t sugar coat things. He is gonna tell you right in your face what the hell you did wrong and all of us need that. In conclusion, I got the best outcome I could ever imagined and I thank Adam for that!

Thank you so much for taking the time to share your thoughts on my representation. I am glad that you chose me to assist you and I am very pleased that you were satisfied with the outcome. As I tell every client, "I do NOT have a crystal ball" BUT I will do everything in my power to increase the odds for a great result. I am so appreciative that you recognized how hard I advocated for you. I hope you NEVER need my services again, but if you do, I am happy to try to help. I handle a wide variety of cases, not just criminal/traffic, so if I can not help you I will find someone that can.

A pragmatic intellect, rock-solid attorney and a wonderful person.
Adam represented me in a hybrid case which blended family and tenant law. He was excellent at preparing me so I knew just what to expect and what needed to be done. His knowledge of the law, the legal system and the legal community here in Maryland was impressive. With his mix of intellectual prowess and methodical work he performed a great service.

Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience. I am grateful that you are satisfied with my representation. I am also glad that you appreciated the value that my connection to the legal community brought to the table. I always tell my clients that practicing law is sometimes like playing chess and we both worked hard for the checkmate. It is my hope that you do NOT need my services ever again, however, if you do, I would be honored to represent you.

Response from Adam Cohen January 10, 2024
Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience with my representation. Thank you, also, for your faith and trust as there are so many lawyers to choose from. Criminal cases are marathons and a client's wait for justice can be absolutely draining. I am so glad that the wait was worth it. Congratulations again and I wish you all the best in 2024.

Hands down one of the BEST to represent you in the court of law!
From beginning to end I always felt that I was in good hands. Adam took on 2 cases for me at the same time. Both of my cases have been settled and leave me with a sense of relief off of my shoulders. All due to his expertise and professionalism. Adam is down to earth and very knowledgeable. Prompt with his response whenever I had questions or just needed his perspective on something whether through texts, emails or calls. I would, without a doubt recommend Adam to represent you for your case, I guarantee you won’t be disappointed!

Detailed oriented and takes time to explain the process.
We recently worked with Adam on a case and was so happy we choose him. He thorougly explains ever step of the legal process and is extremely detail oriented. Neve once did we feel rushed as he took ample time to address any questions we had. Would 100% work with Adam again should we ever need legal help in the future.

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review. I am aware how many lawyers are out there and it is truly an honor to have been chosen to help you.

Response from Adam Cohen September 12, 2022
Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review. I am always clear that I have no idea about how a case will turn out because I am ONLY in control of myself. I can't control the State, or the witnesses or the Judge. I can't even control my clients. I can only ADVISE them as to what I feel the best approach is. It is always a team effort. I am very happy that you obtained an amazing result in your case. You went over and above what I recommended for you to do and that helped ensure that you were in the best position to get a great result. I meant it when I said that "when you hire me, I will do everything I can do give you peace of mind that you, your job, and your freedom are passionately being protected". I wish you and your family all the best !

BEST LEGAL REPRESENTATION FOR NEWBIES!
We want to express our appreciation for your support in the resolution of the automobile accident involving Erie Insurance. While they and their client refused to accept responsibility, your review and subsequent actions convinced them to settle the claim. You were the only one willing to help and for that we are extremely grateful. The damage to the vehicle exceeded the value of the vehicle, a total loss. Our only option was to go to court. You explained everything and took care of the matter, lifted the burden off our shoulders. Directly attributable to your actions, the pictures of the scene and request for the body cam footage most assuredly were the tipping point which caused Erie to reconsider their position and settle the claim prior to a court case. We would recommend your legal firm to anyone needing a lawyer who has the best interest of his clients in mind.

Response from Adam Cohen September 9, 2022
I really appreciate your kind words. It was my pleasure helping you get justice. Some people think that I ONLY handle criminal cases or serious traffic, BUT, I also like to get involved in cases where people are being taken advantage of. That happens a lot in car accidents (personal injury) where the other person lies to their insurance company and then the claim is denied. Helping you felt great because the loss of your vehicle was bad enough but the salt in the wound was the insurance company saying that you caused the accident. I’m glad you can put this all behind you. Thanks again for your review.

Amazing attorney!
Since the first time I spoke with Adam Sean Cohen, he made me feel like he really cared about my case and getting the best possible outcome for me. After speaking once, I decided to hire him and do not regret it one bit. He was extremely detail oriented and made sure he had all important information needed to help me with my case, and I always felt like we were on the same page. On the day of the hearing, his calm but confident demeanor helped me feel so much less nervous and he reassured me he was confident that everything would go well. The outcome of the case was in my favor and I owe it all to Mr. Cohen. Cannot thank him enough! I would highly recommend him for all your legal needs.

I really appreciate that you took the time to write a review for me. I really appreciate your perception of how I handled the case. I take great pleasure in helping individuals like you that have been taken advantage of by someone else's manipulation of the Judicial System. I can not stress enough how important it is for EVERYONE to at least talk to an attorney if you are contemplating going to court without a lawyer. I am glad you called me and decided to hire me. That is the highest compliment. Fortunately, we obtained JUSTICE for you. Thanks again and Best of Luck !

I have ZERO doubt that Adam is the best lawyer out there!
I made the huge mistake of thinking I was ok to drive one evening after going out for drinks, and after getting pulled over my life appeared to crumble. It truly felt like a nightmare was playing out. From doing sobriety field tests on the side of a busy road to getting my pockets searched and treated like a criminal by the police, it was unbelievably humbling. I desperately needed guidance and Adam was there for me every step of the way. Luckily, I had a friend who recommended Adam to me, letting me know there was no one better in Maryland and I now know he was spot on with that statement. From explaining the legal process to advising me on which steps to take to tangibly show my remorse, I could not have asked for a better person to have by my side. There truly is a system to this and finding the best lawyer to help execute it was invaluable to me. When I had my many questions, Adam answered them in a respectable and very timely manner; even when I definitely had too many questions. I truly felt that he was there for me, believed in me, wanted to support me, and wanted a favorable outcome for me. This was not just “another case” or “a job” for him, he really cared. I would not have known which steps to take without him and I have no doubt that without his help I would have been in a much worse spot. He helped me get probation before judgment as the outcome of my case and I am now getting a second chance to NEVER make that mistake again. Thank you so much Adam for helping me though this very challenging time.

Best lawyer in MD
I was picky about choosing a lawyer because I wanted to get the best possible result. And I must tell you that I was extremely pleased with my choice. Adam Sean was interested and courteous during the entire period of preparation for the hearing. He carefully studied the situation and asked clarifying questions both about the case itself and about me in general for the best representation in the court. There were no trifles for him. But no less and perhaps more importantly he is well versed in the intricacies of the procedural. Thanks to his knowledge and intuition, we were able to drop all charges and the court found me absolutely not guilty. I wish Adam good luck, because as a professional he undoubtedly deserves great heights and I am sure that he will achieve extraordinary success and fame.

Professional, Honest, and Invested in my Case
I faced criminal charges based entirely on false accusations. My career and life goals were placed in jeopardy, and tremendous stress took over my life. Adam Sean Cohen did a tremendous job with my case, helping me navigate through each of the many challenges that arose. He handled my case in a professional manner, providing honest advice while communicating effectively every step of the way. He answered any questions and addressed any concerns that I had in a manner that provided me with confidence and reassurance leading up to the trial date. I am pleased with the outcome and would certainly recommend Adam Sean Cohen to anyone in need of an attorney.

Thank you for your kind words. I am relieved that it worked out so well. I must add that it was a pleasure representing you, discussing your case, options and strategies. I really appreciated how involved you were in the process. You really did ask a lot of excellent questions. These types of "false accusation" cases require teamwork and good communication between lawyer and client. Please do not hesitate to call me if you or anyone you know needs to speak to an attorney. I handle many types of cases (car accidents, family law, traffic), NOT just criminal.
