Andy Cohen was a public defender in Dalton, Georgia before entering private practice. He represented hundreds of clients in Superior Court in Whitfield and Murray Counties before moving to Atlanta in May of 2009 and starting the Cohen Law Firm.
Andy has a bachelor's degree from the University of California, a master's degree from the University of Washington, and a law degree from Mercer University. Having spent much of his adult life as a professional musician, he also has a PhD from the School of Hard Knocks.
We associate with and work with numerous, reputable criminal and civil lawyers in Atlanta and surrounding areas.
We are trial lawyers. We are not afraid to pick a jury and take your case to trial. Although most cases – criminal or civil – are resolved short of trial, we are willing to take your case all the way to trial if necessary.
We try cases in State and Superior courts around the metro area, the counties that surround Atlanta, and many other parts of Georgia. If you are charged with a crime in Gwinnett, Cobb, DeKalb, Fulton, Paulding, Clayton, or any other Georgia county, we can be there for you. Cherokee, Hall, or Henry County, we can be there! Whether you have court in Atlanta, Suwanee, Forest Park, Norcross, Lilburn, Lawrenceville, Gainesville, Macon, or Burnt Mattress, Georgia, we can be there!
