Review Lawrence Kohn

  • Save yourself $6000

    Anonymous review posted on

    This was my very FIRST time ever being charged for a DUI and I thought by hiring a lawyer who lives in Brookhaven that my case would have a better chance at being resolved in Brookhaven upon advisement with Larry Kohn and William Head and especially since I was arrested prior to being asked to take a breathelizer test and I also asked what my rights were and was not read the implied consent rights along with other errors during my proceedings but anyway after my court hearing and getting convicted of improper stopping for the VERY FIRST TIME EVER in my life of anything (my first conviction ever in my life in other words) the following is the list of stipulations my hard earned $6000 that Larry charged won me. 1) 120 hours of community service, 2) 3 $15 random alcohol/drug testing, 3) 12 months of probation with no early termination, 4) a $95 alcohol evaluation, 5) a $355 driving course that is 20 hours long, 6) a $1000 fine, and 7) $132 in probation fees reporting that will cause me to be unable to work those days until 3 random passed drug/alcohol tests are passed. So this caused my very first probation officer to ask if I had multiple DUI convictions and why didn't I get a lawyer to their shock and surprise that I did have one that charged me $6000 because people who are actually convicted of their 1st DUI only get a maximum of 20-40 hours community service and most get an early termination of their probation after paying their fines but I was given 120 hours and no early termination at all for 12 months of probation for my very first conviction in my life which they are calling improper stopping so my advise would be to save your $6000 and get reckless driving for your first time which results in the normal stipulations instead of wasting your money only to get the most egregious punishment ever!!

    Lawrence Abram Kohn’s response: “Without going into the difficult facts, so I don't disclose client confidences, this charge of DUI was dismissed to an improper stopping charge. Based on the video the implied consent was read and there was an incredibly strong probability that this person would have been convicted by a judge or jury and lost their license for 12 months with NO permit. This review shows that not all clients are happy with their results and shows that my reviews are legitimate, not ones that I made up or hired a company to write for me. Some lawyers post reviews that are not real. I do not. I am sorry that I could not meet this person's expectations, but I seriously doubt that anything short of a dismissal would satisfy them. In Metro Atlanta if a DUI is amended to a different charge, more community service, higher fines, and possibly jail time are common. In court, this person was satisfied with the outcome and chose to accept this negotiation. I would advise every other client that I have ever represented to strongly consider this incredibly good deal. I am confident that there was NO better result possible. I have not found one lawyer who would have advised their client to potentially fight a losing DUI case rather than accept this plea to a simple traffic offense with 120 hours of community service, DUI school, alcohol, and drug evaluation, 3 drug screens, probation that becomes non-reporting after 6 months and $1000 fine. I look at this result as nothing less than incredible, and I would bet that if you were charged with a tough DUI case and this were offered, you would accept this as fast as you could. Sometimes expectations can never be met.”

    2011 was a year I struggled to get through. To make matters worse, my car rolled back in traffic in March hitting another car. I ended up in court charged with a dui. A friend suggested Attorney Larry Kohn. Best advice ever. It has taken a long time to acknowledge him on here but I think it's better late than never.

    I met Larry ten years ago when we needed his service for a family member. In subsequent years he has always been the first call when a friend or family member finds themselves in a tough legal spot. He is sharp, extremely competent, fair, and professional. I have always been impressed with his advice, counseling and reassuring nature. I will continue to be his friend, and I will continue to recommend Larry to all in need.

    Larry is a dedicated professional who really cares about his clients. His level of professionalism, straightforwardness and honesty really deserves high marks. Throughout the duration of my out-of-state case, I knew exactly where I stood thanks to Larry's excellent level of communication. I never had to go to court once and Larry was able to reduce DUI Less Safe to reckless driving. I am forever thankful. Thanks Larry!

  • Best possible outcome

    I was arrested in 12/2013 after driving home form a work event. I am a nurse and was really scared of losing my job. Larry assured me over and over that he would do everything to make sure that wouldn't happen. It took a whole but after two years I was found not guilty. I am forever thankful.

  • DUI CASE

    5.0 stars

    Posted by Ann

    I hired Larry Kohn for my DUI case and would highly recommend him to anyone in need of a DUI lawyer. It was well worth the money and he was more than willing to create a payment plan that worked for me. I realized that my case was not an easy one, so I expected the worse and hoped for the best. Right before my trial, Larry was able to make a plea bargain with the prosecutor and reduce my case down to a reckless driving charge. Now I am free from any DUI charges and can happily move forward! The outcome was the best case scenario for my case and I am extremely happy with the results that Larry was able to achieve!

    Great Lawyer. I got a DUI back in the summer. Looked terrible on camera and had a misdemeanor hit and run. I blew almost double the legal limit. Larry was able to get everything reduced down to failure to report an accident and a reckless driving. The outcome could not have been better. Larry cares about his clients. He is a great lawyer and a great guy.

  • I was charged very wrongly with reckless driving

    5.0 stars

    Anonymous review posted on

    I knew the police officer acted with a lot of bias and rudeness. She even said she could have arrested me for the accident within my apartment complex. I had nothing close to reckless driving on record, but such was the charge. Larry told me most of this police woman's comments were baloney. At the defensive driving class I learned that an accelerator of an old car could get stuck! That was my experience of the moment, and Larry fought for me. He was not cheap. It was a tough case as I had totaled two other cars. State Farm came and helped the victims out. Larry's guidance was superb and my outcome was wonderful, other than the monetary angle. I am seriously considering lodging a complaint against the lying policewoman. Every other officer was so decent!

  • DUI lesssafe & refusal & stop sign violation DROPPED

    5.0 stars

    Anonymous review posted on

    Walking out of the court today, I still could not believe what just happened: Larry got my 3 charges: DUI less safe & refusal & stop sign violation dropped and reduced to just reckless driving with NO PROBATION and NO LICENSE SUSPENSION. Yes, Larry saved me.

    Being an international senior college student, I could not be more desperate when I was arrested for DUI. A DUI conviction could severely jeopardize my future job application and immigration status.

    My uncle referred Larry, the lawyer he went to a long time ago, to me. After sitting down with Larry, he clearly analyzed the whole situation, debriefed the possible consequences and instructed a few things for me to do, which was a fabulous decision--My license was secured, and by completing the required lessons and evaluation ahead of time, I avoided the probation.

    Georgia is one of the states having the strictest laws about DUI. However with Larry helping me preparing for the court and negotiating with the prosecutor (he is also very experienced at it. He knows so many judges and prosecutors in GA, even including the police officer who arrested me), we got the best outcome we could ever imagine.

    Larry is not only very professional and knowledgeable of his job, but also very reliable and warm. He replied my message and calls back very timely even in holidays and weekends. If you have a similar situation to mine, I would recommend Larry with absolutely zero reservation.
