Driving w Revoked License, Running red light - all charges DROPPED!!
Couldn't be happier with the results (obviously). Of course I had *hoped* for a good outcome, but I was shocked to hear the final disposition. Couldn't recommend more highly.

Review
I was referred to Mr. Cohen by a family friend. I was strongly pleased with his work. Him and his team got me the best situation possible and I really had to do nothing but sit back and let them handle it. I highly recommend using him if you’re ever in need of a good lawyer.

Great outcome with speeding ticket
I had gotten a speeding ticket on Poplin Road in Indian Trail (60 in a 45). I wasn't sure what the outcome of this would be, but knew I needed assistance. Mr. Cohen came up in a google search and I immediately called his office (two days after receiving ticket). I could e-mail or call to discuss my matter at any time, and each person I spoke with was quick with any answers. Am very satisfied with how my ticket was handled and would highly recommend!

Excellent Service!
Thank you so much for helping us with our speeding ticket. We are out of county so their knowledge and service in our absence was impeccable. We were always kept informed throughout the process and we are very thankful for them.

Would Highly Recommend
I was cited for a minor traffic violation that could have had serious repercussions on my driving record. I contacted Mr Cohen's office for council where his staff quickly gave me options and within a week they had a plan to help me in my situation. Mr Cohen was able to get the charge dismissed before my court date. Mr Cohen and his office were amazing and I would highly recommend.

Failure to stop at a stop sign dismissed-this guy is good!
Got my first citation ever in Stallings, NC for a failure to stop at a stop sign. Wasn’t impressed with the mailers I received and set out on the internet to find a competent lawyer for my case. Everywhere I looked I kept coming back to Mr Zachary Cohen and I called the next day to sign up. The process was simple and the office staff was friendly. Super easy electronic documents to sign/return and reasonable fees. I was notified by email that my case was fully dismissed before my court date! 110% pleased-not sure how this guy works his magic but you best believe I will refer business from friends/family if they are ever in need. Thanks for the Christmas miracle and Happy New Year!!!

Everything dropped
I had an unfortunate situation where I was speeding in my recently late husbands vehicle and was cited for speeding and possession of paraphernalia that he had tucked away that I knew nothing of. I have NEVER gotten in trouble for anything more than speeding and it had been 10yrs since last ticket. I explained how the items belongs to my late husband and I had yet to clean out his vehicle (1 month after his passing) and Zachary was able to get everything completely dismissed in my favor. My estate lawyer was going to let me take the hit and have points on my license and mandatory N.A. Meetings to get it expunged afterwards. I am now the single mother of three and can’t attend anything after work so Zachary saved me a lot of trouble in many ways! Thank you so much to him and his team!

74/55 reduced to Improper Equipment
I am extremely pleased with this outcome. The process of hiring was easy and taken care of in less that 20 minutes. I was worried I would have points on my license or insurance payment raised but I now have none. 10/10 will hire again (though obviously I try not get into trouble).

"Mr. Cohen has found a very valuable niche. He is trying and winning DWI cases. He has an extreme knowledge of field sobriety testing. He often wins DWI cases by showing the arresting officer failed to perform the tests in the appropriate manner. He is not afraid to try a case and confront the officer and educate the court on the proper manner required to perform the standardized tests. If you have a criminal matter, you need to call Mr. Cohen."
