  • William K. Goldfarb

    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.
