Mr. Kohn is an excellent lawyer. He is thorough, responsive, with a wealth of expertise. I felt confident in his abilities from my first encounter with him. He was especially responsive at returning phone calls and keeping us posted on the status of my son's case. The outcome of my son's case was better than we expected. I highly recommend Mr. Kohn

Mr. Kohn is a very professional attorney who is not only knowledgeable about the law, but also has a heart and cares about people. He took the time to really listen to my story and advise me on every facet of the charges and the actions I could take to help myself. He guided me, cared, and helped me through a very difficult period. I trusted him and he never let me down. His experience helped make a very frightening experience less shameful and overwhelming. He fought for the fairest sentence that was reasonable. He always responded to me and kept me fully informed. Mr. Kohn is not only a good lawyer, he is a good man.

After my son was arrested for a 2nd drug-related offense within a 5-month period (and while having been on probation already for 2-1/2 years), I called Larry Kohn in August and received a call back within one minute. He managed to fit me in for an appointment that same day. When Larry looked over my son's case and recommended a course of action for these 2 cases plus dealing with his probation violation, I knew immediately that I wanted Larry to take the case. He worked out a payment plan with me for which I was very grateful. Larry visited my son in jail to gather the facts and spent some time getting to know him. Larry then recommended a good addiction counselor and advised my son to get an addiction evaluation, which he did. Case #2 was postponed a couple of times, but eventually the evidence we were waiting on came through, and Larry Kohn managed to get the case dismissed in September. Turning his attention to case #1, Larry worked out a plan for my son to attend a long-term rehab facility (which he desperately needed) while waiting for case #1 to be heard. Finally, in January Larry Kohn managed to get the charge for case #1 dismissed. In addition, my son was facing a felony on his record because of his probation violation, but Larry put forward reasoning why my son should keep his first offender status, and the Judge agreed!!! I felt from the beginning that Larry Kohn was the best attorney for my son, but I never could have imagined such a great outcome. My son is now healthy, and he is very grateful for this chance to start afresh without a felony on his record. I really cannot thank Larry Kohn enough, and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone needing legal assistance.

Attorney Lawrence Kohn was referred to us by a friend and we were extremely pleased and in awe of his handling of a very difficult/complex case for our daughter. In addition, he maintained a very positive outlook even when the facts looked bleak. He is highly recommended and brings to the table extensive experience, tenacity, persistence and compassion! His rating surpasses "Excellent."

Larry represented me in a recent DUI case. Like many people that go through this experience for the first time I was nervous and did not know exactly what i was getting myself into. Larry and his staff were helpful in explaining the situation.
During the consultation he asked several questions and really listened to my story with the intent of finding any details that we would need to ultimately win the case.
His expertise led him to take a single sentence from my story that suggested that the officer in the case had not correctly followed protocol and may have violated my rights.
He then successfully corroborated my story using audio and video evidence and built a solid argument.
In the end his prediction regarding the outcome was correct and we were able to negotiate the case down to reckless driving. This was the best possible outcome that we could have gotten as all of the evidence against me was then suppressed in court.
I am very pleased with his performance. If not for the fact that I have moved from the state of GA I am confident that he would have found a way to win the case outright at a trial.
I can not emphasize how important it was for this case to go away and I sincerely thank Larry for his effort.

"Alex, I have good news to share..." That was what Larry first said when I answered his phone the other day and I knew he got what I wanted. That was just a little over one month after I got arrested for a stupid mistake I made on that faithful afternoon. Yes, my case was dismissed and gone to diversion program, the best possible I can ask for.
I found Larry on AVVO by the 5-star rating and over 130+ reviews under his name. I figured if so many people have good words for him, he must be doing something right. But one thing did worry us is his clients are mostly DUI related with only a few criminal defense cases. But after I contacted 4 different criminal defense lawyers, what Larry said hit with me the most. With me as an immigrant without a US citizenship, he was able to immediately identify the most important issues with my cases after I talked to him over the phone. And more importantly, the expected results and the way he said he would present my cases to the prosecutor is exactly what I wanted. Also, he charges very reasonable legal fee. For the results and the time it took to get the result, it is worth every penny of it. The rest is just played out as he said it would. I was informed every step of the ways and know exactly what I should do and should not do (don’t bother him too much, just let him do the works. :-). One thing that impressed me the most is his hard-working attitude and his ability to get to the point so fast, talk fast and even type fast. No nonsense. Straight business. Love it!!
Larry delivered above and beyond our expectation! He is the man! Thanks again!

Larry has always been a "go to" guy for legal knowledge in the DUI field. He is a frequent lecturer to other lawyers and an excellent source of information. I often ask his help with difficult cases, and he is always able to provide a fresh perspective. Larry is known all over the state as having an excellent motions practice, and highly successful trial record. He is a fighter and a winner. I recommend Larry without hesitation.
Leslie Sammis, DUI and DWI Attorney
Relationship: Worked for lawyer
I endorse this lawyer's work. I worked with Larry Kohn for several years when I was at Head, Thomas, Webb and Willis. I sat second chair in a difficult battery case with a very vocal "alleged victim" in which Larry convinced the prosecutor to drop the charges after we picked a jury! Larry takes a scholarly and aggressive approach to filing and litigating motions and has a great relationship with the prosecutors who respect the fact that he comes to court prepared to win the case. I would recommend Larry Kohn to any one needing a criminal defense attorney in Georgia for a DUI case, or any state criminal charge.
