About me

I only handle criminal cases.  My practice focuses on DUI cases.   I do my best to treat each client in the same manner that  I would want to be treated.  I give all clients my cell phone number and will return all phone calls, emails, and texts.  I know that a criminal charge can bring a ton of stress to a person.  I will do whatever I can to help get the charged person out of this messy part of their lives.

  • Richard T. Ryczek Jr.

    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 Miller Sammis

    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.
