Posted by Steve
I recently got off probation, and wanted to share my experience to folks that find themselves in a bind, and need to hire an attorney. In March of 2015 I found my self in Jail 90 miles from my residence facing 20 plus charges in 2 jurisdictions. Yes 20+ charges 2 DUI's, 5 hit and runs, Aggressive Driving, Reckless Driving, 5 Failure to report accident, 5 following too close, 5 failure to maintain lane. So yes my world was suddenly turned upside down. Once I got out of Jail I realized Immediately I needed the BEST attorney in Georgia. I searched the internet and Found William "Bubba" Head and associates as the premier DUI law office in the State of Georgia. I hired Jennifer Ammons..and she recommended a course of action. Before we went to court she took another Job with the State and my cases were assigned to Mr. Larry Kohn. I was very nervous having my cases reassigned...I assumed they would assign me to a lower associate lawyer....they did not...they assigned my cases several levels up to Mr. Larry Kohn. I met Mr. Kohn for the very first time at court...for the first case. He was professional and very blunt about the pile of sh!t I had gotten myself into. He was able to get the cases bound over and combined into 1. He recommend several things for me to do in the interim. 2 DUI Classes, 146 AA meetings, 21 Therapy Meetings, MADD meeting, 240hrs Community service etc. I took his advice seriously and did everything he recommended and more. The whole process took about 10 months before we went to Court for the finale. I was a nervous wreck the whole time, nightmares, guilt, remorse etc. Mr. Kohn was very upfront and blunt about what I was facing, a year or more of Jail, no License, etc. The end result, all but 5 charges were dropped, I plead guilty to 5, Sentence: 4 months in Jail on work release in my "HOME" county got out to go to work every day except 3 days...weather, Holiday. 4 months no license, got my license back the day after I got out of jail. 80hrs community service which I had already completed, 10 Therapy Meetings which I had already completed, DUI Classes which were already completed, and 8 months probation. I was fined $1300 plus fees. I served 6 months of probation they cancelled the last 2 months (early termination). My gratitude for Mr. Kohn can not be expressed in words, It's much deeper than any word I can type here. I hope this review has helped you in learning more about Mr. Kohn and his abilities as an EXPERT, FIRST CLASS ATTORNEY. He can help you "Believe Me"...he can help Make your Life Great Again!

I will begin this review by first expressing my gratitude for having had Larry on my family's side. He has proven himself to be a first class lawyer who is honest and shows much integrity and professionalism.
This is not a fabricated review nor is this a review that is being submitted out of obligation. This is a review to give Larry the credit that he deserves as a Criminal Defense Lawyer. If you are seeking an attorney who first and foremost knows the law and will fight for you, then there is no point in retaining anyone other than Larry Kohn. He will go above and beyond in trying to ensure the best possible outcome for your case. I can say this because he fought hard for my 19 year old son and the outcome was more than favorable; It was miraculous.
When my son initially got into trouble, I searched "Criminal Defense Attorneys" in Georgia and saw the link to AVVO. I began reading as many reviews as I could on various lawyers and when I began reading Larry's reviews, I was struck by the number of positive reviews and favorable comments that he'd received. I called his firm to set up the initial consultation.
To share some particulars of my 19 year old son's case; He was charged with 2 felonies (one of which was a drug charge) as well as 3 misdemeanors. Larry explained during our initial consultation that this was going to be a difficult case. He assured us that he would do the very best that he could, but because he wanted us to realize what we were up against and because he is honest and a "straight shooter" - he made no guarantees. Although I was a scared mom, I respected his honesty and made the decision that we would hire him to represent my son.
This whole legal process has been daunting to say the least, but having Larry there to reassure us, disect the law for us and keep us informed along the way, has made this that much more bearable. He communicated often with my son, and let him know that he needed to straighten up and get his act together. I appreciated him taking the time to speak so directly with my son, because in this whole legal maze of a system, that kind of caring is often times not offered. Larry spoke with my son about the law as it pertained to his case and did not sugarcoat the fact that these were serious charges with very serious consequences. Consequences that could be life-altering.
After months and months of going through this legal nightmare-Fast forward to our scheduled court date to address these charges. Larry worked so very hard for my son and he was able to get the felony charges reduced to misdemeanors. And not to minimize this, because this entire process was extremely difficult. This was no easy task, but Larry genuinely wanted the best for my son. Only an experienced attorney who is extremely knowledgeable would have been able to garner this outcome. My 19 year old son will not have to walk around a convicted felon. We owe this to Larry's expertise and caring.
There are not enough ways to say "Thank You." My son and my entire family have immense respect and adoration for Mr. Kohn.
I can stop crying now because you saved my son's life-Thank You Larry..

I was in Atlanta visiting my sister's family when some friends in the area asked me to go out that night. They picked me up in a brand new BMW, and at the end of the night, I wanted to take it for a spin. Not long after, I was arrested for DUI, Reckless Driving, Speeding (95mph in a 65mph zone), and Failure to Signal a Lane Change.
The gravity of the situation weighed heavily on me as I was in lock-up, and once I got out and reviewed the penalties associated with those offenses, I seriously thought my career was in jeopardy. A DUI is 10-day minimum prison sentence. My drivers license would likely get suspended. In my line of work, I must always be available for contact, and my absence from work would have derailed a $50 million project. On top of that, what other special circumstances affect me since I don't reside in Georgia?
I contacted several of the top-rated DUI lawyers in Atlanta on Avvo.com For me, money was not an issue, especially for a matter as serious as this. And while he's not on the cheaper side of the spectrum for DUI lawyers in Atlanta, he certainly is not the most expensive. So what set Larry apart from the others was his completely honest assessment of my situation. I felt the others tried to sell me false hope while Larry was a straight-shooter. And that's the kind of person I wanted on my team.
Once I hired Larry, he gave me a list of things to do in order to help my case. Substance abuse evaluation, DUI school, etc. In the mean time, he would make all of the court appearances for me since I lived out-of-state. That alone saved me thousands in flight/hotel/car rental expenses. Whenever I had a question, Larry was quick to respond to my emails or texts. And then finally a year and a half after my arrest, a date for my Motions Hearing was set. For 1.5 years, the specter of this legal issue hung over my life. I fully expected to serve jail time for this; and while that would have been terrible, my real concern was my career.
On the eve of the Motions Hearing, literally 10 minutes before I was about to set off on my drive to Atlanta, I got a call from Larry. Because of the evidence that they had on me, Larry told me that he was able to make a deal with the prosecutor to drop the DUI charge. And sure enough, because of Larry's hard work on this case, because of the DUI-related tasks that he had me do before the Hearing, and because of his working relationships within the courts, I plead guilty to only Reckless Driving and Speeding and walked out of court with only a $500 fine, no probation. On top of that, the Speeding wasn't even the excessive variety (15+ mph over the limit).
Now, Larry's service could have ended right there. Instead he insisted on guiding me through the process of paying the fines and recovering the cash bond that was posted for my arrest. All the while, I witnessed him working his relationships within the court system to help out another client. It reminded me of a lobbyist in Congress making backroom deals to further his clients goals. Like a lot of things in life, it's all about who you know. And Larry knows them all.
I honestly cannot recommend Larry Kohn enough. Do yourself a favor and hire him.

Mr. Kohn is a 10/10 lawyer, through and through. Several years ago when I was 18, I had multiple drug-related charges that were severe enough to cripple my future. One of the greatest things that could have happened to me, however, was that I was fortunate enough to have Mr. Kohn take my case. To say that I got a great result would be an understatement - I got THE BEST possible result I could have asked for, which completely gave me the second chance I needed. Throughout the process, Mr. Kohn was nice, very communicative, and knowledgeable about how we should proceed. I will truly remember the work he did for me for the rest of my life, and will never take it for granted.
Here I am several years later, and I had a few questions for Mr. Kohn regarding my case. When I told him who I was, he remembered me and the details of my case from YEARS ago. Beyond just getting a fantastic result, he remembered the case perfectly and was able to quickly answer all of my questions. I simply cannot give Mr. Kohn enough credit here - he is a top-notch lawyer who is an expert in his field, and you cannot go wrong with him!

I was nervous that morning in court. What started out as a fun "boys day out" months before ended up with me, at over 3 times the legal limit, hitting another car then hitting the curb totaling my own car, calling my wife to bail me out of jail and now facing DUI charges.
I honestly believed there was no hope for my situation. I came into the courtroom fully prepared to be led downstairs and fed to a dragon. Larry was talking to the prosecuting attorneys and then we all stood before the judge. As I stood there listening to the judge, it started to become clear that something different was happening. I started to regain hope.
The judge dismissed me and Larry told me to go sit down while he took care of some business. A few minutes later Larry came over to me and said "Do you understand what just happened to you. Your DUI was dismissed and reduced to a reckless driving charge".
It was just after Halloween and my morning talk show had recently mentioned the great escape artist and magician Harry Houdini.
I looked at Larry and said, "You're a magician".
I read some of the reviews here before writing this one and I now see that my situation was nothing compared to what Larry has taken of for others.
Larry Kohn is without question the most prepared, intelligent and dedicated lawyer you will ever encounter. If you're in a dire situation and need a true legal escape artist, there is none better. He will put you at ease and make your problems disappear.

Attorney Kohn's professionalism, responsiveness and competence epitomizes all that I expected out of an attorney. His quick responses, whether by email or over the phone, assured me that he was always on the job. In the end, he exceed my expectations and all charges were dismissed.

I was facing a misdemeanor charge and contacted Lawrence Kohn within a week of the incident. He listened to all the information I had to give him and immediately gave me suggestions on what I needed to do get back on track. He handled everything for me. Mr. Kohn is very responsive, and he cares about his clients. Through the entire process which I expected to be very stressful he kept me informed and made the process so much easier. He was able to work out a pre-trial diversion. My charges went from a misdemeanor to 40 hours of community service and dismissed. I highly recommend him for anyone who needs a criminal defense attorney. I feel I received the best possible outcome because of Lawrence Kohn and was able to get back on track with my life. Thank you so much.

Larry did a wonderful job representing me. He was able to get my 3rd DUI in 10 years dropped to a wreckless, and I am still able to keep my drivers license. He is straight foreward and very easy to talk to. I highly recommend him!! I would definitely contact him if you have a similar situation.
