5.0 stars 8 totalReview Andy Cohen
Posted by Kristin
When I was charged with "Obstruction of a Police Officer" I was completely terrified. What in the world did THAT mean? I've never been in any situation like this before?!?... I was in absolute panic because my first court date was less than a few days away...I was going to try to just speak to the Judge and tell my side of the story, but thanks goodness my sister convinced me to hire an attorney as fast as possible. Who was going to be able to help me NOW?? I googled, "best attorney for obstruction charge"...The Cohen Law Firm came up, and with great reviews. I called immediately, and left a voice mail. The last thing I'd expected was a call back the same day, let alone within a half hour, but Andy Cohen called me right back and listened to me in full, with so much patience and without cutting me off or treating me like I was wasting any of his time...it was completely refreshing and immediately eased my shattered nerves. Not only did he listen to me, and treat me with mutual respect, but when I explained that I would have to use most of my savings to hire him, he worked with me immediately on it. He made me feel at ease and secure with my decision to move forward and literally did this for me throughout the ENTIRE process. I was in a very tough and "last minute situation" and he had my back within 24 hours!! I've never been so impressed with such a professional and courteous person in modern business, ever. Due to my current lifestyle of full time work and taking care of my 3 year old grandson, mixed with severe anxiety with the whole situation, I had a tendency to avoid completing my required tasks (community service, evaluations, etc.) and Andy remained calm, patient, and STILL so courteous and kind to me, when he had every reason to become upset with me or even charge me more money, but he did not. He never did. He just remained the most professional, non-judgmental, kind and considerate person. You just don't meet, let alone hire, people like this these days. He spent 10 long months being patient with me and EVERY SINGLE time I reached out to him with a fear or a question, I got immediate return communication and clear/concise direction. My charge was reduced, and even probation was not required! I've really come to admire him personally and professionally. I have already told everyone I know that if they ever need an attorney, they MUST call Andy...I plan to refer him to every single person that I don't know if they need an attorney as well. By far, it was not just excellent service, but impeccable integrity and character. I will be FOREVER so grateful.

My family's nightmare began when my two sons were falsely accused of Felony Drug charges. This was indeed the most stressful time in my family's life. I immediately began to research and consult with many defense attorneys, at least 12 in a 4 week period. After much prayer and asking God for guidance, Lo and Behold, I came across the Cohen Law Firm. I spoke with attorney Andy. Andy was like no other. He exhibited such compassion and concern for my boys. He actually listened, did not interrupt, was non-judgemental and over all kind. After speaking with Andy I felt a sense of hope for the first time in 4 weeks. During the office consultation, we were so amazed, as we met with the entire team. They make you feel as if you are at a family meeting, instead of a legal consult. Andy, alone with his partners began to discuss and strategize as we watched and listen in amazement. At that moment, we knew immediately, that our prayers had been answered, and the search ended there. We immediately retain the firm.
The even took in consideration that I had two sons that needed counsel, therefore, agreeing upon a flat fee, that was beyond reasonable. They also offered a very reasonable payment plan. When you retain one you get all three, how awesome is that? Andy took on one of my sons, while his partner Jill the other. They both kept us updated as the case progressed. Andy has a gentle demeanor, but is serious when it comes to his clients. On April 22, Andy walked over to me and my family during a plea hearing. He whispered the most sweetest news, " stay calm, your case is about to be DISMISSED!" OMG, we squeezed the blood out of each other's hand, it was all we could do not to shout!.
Andy, thank you sooo much!! It was you that opened up that door , that lead us to your Awesome Law Family, and ultimately an AMAZING VICTORY!!
For those of you who are seeking to hire the BEST attorneys in Georgia, DO NOT HESITATE, HIRE "Team TRIPLE THREAT!", Andy and the Cohen Law Firm.
May God Bless.

I hired the Cohen Law Firm to handle my criminal case. Attorney Cohen and Polster are very experienced and worked to give me the desired results in my case. They were very upfront with legal advice and always kept me up to date with my case.

I would highly recommend Andy Cohen. He is very informative and thorough. He communicated with me throughout the entire process. Andy assisted me with my legal matter in an efficient manner and worked diligently until the matter was resolved. I can't thank him enough.

There are a lot of lawyers out there wanting to grab the first client they can get to get the money, not Andy Cohen of The Cohen Law Firm. From day one of meeting Andy he took the time to address all of my concerns and questions concerning my case. Andy assured me that he was very confident and knowledgeable of the law. Andy is hard working and dedicated and driven to bring positive results concerning your case. Andy is the type of lawyer that checks in on you whether you are going to court or not, he is a very loving and kind.

Andy Cohen represented me in two cases in the winter of 2009 and the spring of 2010. I contacted him after speaking to at least two-three other attorneys who did not seem a good match. He agreed to take my first case just a few days before my court appearance and when we initialy spoke on the phone, I found his voice to be strong and confident, but also quite comforting. During my first visit he made me feel comfortable and not judged, explained all the legal terminology, possible outcomes and offered payment options to ease any financial burden. I am not a citizen, I am only a permanent resident of the U.S. and English is not my first language, so beside dealing with criminal charges ( shoplifting misdemeanors), I could have faced a deportation as well. Andy Cohen was a great listener,very empathetic and concerned about me personally and I really appreciated that, because I do realize that empathizing with one's very complex personal issues is not something that every attorney is capable of or willing to do.
On the day of my court appearance he had arrived at court before I got there, while someone else's attorney simply forgot to show up. When my case was transferred to another court, he made sure to arrange a new convenient court date, without any involment of my part, so I can visit my relatives out of the country whom I had not seen for a very long time which could have been impossible to do once I entered some type of probation or a sentence.
Once I returned from my trip and my court days were due, he made sure that the entire process is smooth and seemless for me. He fought with the prosecutors and was able to persuade them to get my both cases dismissed and made me eligible for expungement!
Several months later I contacted him again when the court had twice lost the paper work for my expungement and he did his best to give me guidance and advice on how the court system works and offered to contact other legal professionals in the field if necessary to help with the matter. My record has been expunged for a year now.
He also assisted me when I needed help with forming LLC (for starting a small business) and he agreed to be one of the references that I needed.
I greatly recommend Andy Cohen as an attorney, because he is intellectually very sharp, posseses deep understanding of problems occuring in human lives, takes his work seriously and will fight for you. I also recommend him, because he is not only interested in his clients' cases, but he cares about them as individuals who are trying to recover and return to a normal and happier live.
