In January 2014, I was charged with an alleged criminal offense. The initial criminal defense attorney that I hired was not very interested in my side of the story or the facts of the case. After two months of trying to convince me that I should consider a plea and continuing trial dates, I quickly grew frustrated and knew I had to find somebody who was willing to step up and fight for my rights. Mr. Zachary Cohen was that attorney. When I met Mr. Cohen, I looked him straight in the eye and told him I was not interested in a plea and that I needed attorney who had confidence and was willing to take my alleged crime to trial if it was required. Mr. Cohen looked me back in the eye and said "we are going to work well together". I was immediately sold. Ultimately, Mr. Cohen delivered as promised. For anyone who is passionate about their innocence and wants an attorney who is willing to fight for their rights, don't second guess yourself and go straight to Zac's office.

If you are looking for a dwi attorney there is no one else that will fight for your case the way Zachary Cohen will. I was facing a serious DWI charge with an accident that would have resulted in losing my license for year along with many other consequences. This was such a stressful time for me, and Zac was able to reassure that he would fight for me to get it dismissed. Most attorneys will tell you this & then you still get convicted. Zac was able to get the DWI dismissed due to his hard work. I was & am still in shock of how he was able to prove an arguement that got the charges dropped completely. This has changed my life in so many ways & I owe it all to him. I strongly reccomend him for any legal problems you may face.

MR. Cohen was highly recommended when I was in need of an attorney. Although hesitant at first to meet Zach I found this attorney to be extremely knowledgeable. Zach always does as he say's and without a doubt aggressively defends his clients. The staff is very professional and kept me informed completely through the entire process of court proceedings. No calls ever go unanswered. Although his fees are very reasonable I would have paid twice MR. Cohens fee as I was very impressed. I recommend this attorney to anyone looking for a knowledgeable attorney who is well respected in the Judicial system and personally from my own experience can't imagine using anyone other than Zachary Cohen attorney of law.

Zach Cohen represented me for a court matter recently. He is an outstanding lawyer who grasps the relevant facts quickly and can devise great strategies that deliver the expected result. I was very pleased with his knowledge of the Union County court system, the laws involving my case, and his responsiveness and thoroughness in getting a favorable resolution to my issue. This was a case ,as they say, 'of first impression' and it was handled favorably within 1.5 months. I've retained and worked with both criminal and civil attorneys in the past and present and I put him at the top of my list.

I was referred by a friend to Zachary Cohen to handle a speeding ticket, I had lawyers in the past assist me getting a ticket reduced or knocked down to a lesser offense. Zac was able to get my ticket taken care of with NO POINTS anywhere, and then when I got another ticket 2 months later he was able to do the same thing. Zac is a true professional who know's how to best help his clients. I will never go anywhere else.

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.
