I have Known Daryl for over 29 years and he has always showed real personal concerned for his Clients. If he act as if it was him that was fighting that challenge or going through that situation himself. That alone made me know he was the right minded person. He always gave me the right information even if it was something I didn't want to hear. You can depend on him and he doesn't just doesn't from you take a fee from you. He earns it and you will be extremely satisfied you chose him to represent you. I would not go into court rooms battles without him by your side. Thanks Daryl for being a real GLADIATOR

Darryl is the cream of the crop. Every entertainment client and every person charged with a crime who he has represented knows what a professional he is. We need more Darryls.

Knows what he's doing!
Darryl had me in and out of Traffic Court in 30 minutes, which is shocking. He knew many of the people in the courthouse, and not only got my fine reduced, but got all of the points eliminated. This is the attorney you want if you have a criminal matter anywhere in the Atlanta metro area.

The best
Gave Darryl Cohen a case which another attorney had botched up. Darryl took charge and not only fixed the damage that had been done, but won the case. Everyone in the courtroom, from the judge, down to the court reporters, seems to have the utmost respect for him. From the time we walked into the courthouse together, several people came up to him, asking for advice, etc. Never seen an attorney more well connected with the powers that be.

Very dissapointing
Darryl took a large retainer frim us 2 weeks ago, then dismissed us as clients and is keeping the retainer. He also said negative things about us to the press.
