Jill represented me on a case that ended up being more complicated than I had inadvertently lead her to believe. She managed it with stride, and even though she had to be quick on her feet, resolved the situation for me.
If she had not been there, no joke, I would have ended up in jail.
I look at it like this. There's a great chance that if you end up needing the Cohen Law firm's services you've likely already had an error in judgment that got you in some sort of trouble. Don't follow that up by bringing the wrong lawyer to court with you.

I have NEVER! written a review for any reason in my life. But had to let the world know about Jill and the Cohen Law firm. My family's nightmare began with my two sons being arrested and falsely accused of 2 counts of Felony Drug Charges. These charges carried very long sentences if convicted. This was the most stressful time in my family's life. Well, being the nurturing mother that I am, I wasted no time researching and consulting with many defense attorneys. None, gave me that gut feeling, confidence, and trust that I was seeking. 4 weeks and many prayers later. It seemed as if out of nowhere that Jill Polster's bio appeared. I contacted the office, and spoke with her partner Andy. Andy was thus far the only attorney, that genuinely listen, without judgement, exhibited passion and concern for my boys. He gave me his opinion and thoughts on the case, all very positive. After our conversation a great sigh of relief came over me. We arranged an office consultation, for my family.
During the office consultation, we were blessed three times over, as we met with Jill, Andy and Morgan,. These guys are awesome! They each exhibited such passion and concern, we felt as if we were in a family meeting instead of a consultation. Before the consult was even over my family and I knew that our prayers had been answered, as we watched and listened as they strategically spoke amongst each other. We didn't hesitate, we hired them on the spot! Having two sons needing representation, their fees were unmatched, and they also offered a very reasonable payment plan. We retained Jill for one son and Andy for the other.
Jill kept us updated during the entire ordeal. She is very knowledgeable and well know amongst her peers. When you hire Jill it becomes personal. She fought with the prosecutor, tooth and nail and did not give up until we got a DISMISSAL! :). She continued to believe in my sons . She knew the case was CRAP! and even turned down the prosecutor's ridiculous plea. I have never met a more confident person in my life. She even told me to let her do the worrying. It was only through her reassurance and optimistic attitude that my family and I were able to remain positive and encouraged. Jill is an AWESOME! attorney and I thank God for answering our prayers. Thank you Jill for giving my sons their life back. Thanks
to the your entire Cohen Law Team, including Naomi the receptionist for your assistance as well. You guys are UNBELIEVABLE! God Bless.
For those in search of the BEST law firm in Georgia, look no farther. DO NOT HESITATE! HIRE, "The Triple Threat!"
It will be one of the best decisions you will ever make.

First off let me start by saying that Jill Is not only an excellent attorney- she is genuinely a loving and compassionate woman of honesty who fights diligently on her clients behalf. About 2 years ago I found myself in the wrong place at the wrong time and ended up facing Felony charges!! It seemed like my entire life was going to end- and I became very depressed. I called several attorneys and they only made matters worst; but that all changed once I called Jill. I told her about my case and rather than try to Persuay me with scare tactics- she told me not to worry and that this was not the end of the world. She wasn't judgemental, and I could tell immediately that she was a good person just by our initial phone conversation. When I hung up the phone I knew I had chosen the right attorney- and my search stopped there. She fought for me passionately and never accepted anything less than a favorable outcome for me - and her efforts definitely paid off because in the end she prevailed!! Yes - I am very happy to say that My case was ultimately dismissed!! There were 9 co-defendants on My case and out of all of them I am the only one who had case dismissed. Of course you cannot attribute this to anything other than excellent legal representation. I would recommend her to anyone and if I was to ever be caught up in the wrong place at the wrong time again I would certainly not hesitate to contact Jill. She is my fairy God Lawyer for life and I'm so glad I found her!! Not only was she an amazing lawyer - but she turned out to be a great friend as well! You know the kind you just can't help but too give them a big hug when you see them.

I had to reach out Jill after my lawyer passed in mid-January of this year and it was the best call I made. She and her partner Andy were able to reduce my DUI charge to Alcohol Less Safe and also they were able to get my misdemeanor charge dismissed once I complete a couple more of my requirement. For my situation, this was the best scenario possible! I highly recommend Jill and her team and I appreciate all that she did for me!

I consulted with Attorney Polster about my criminal charge, she was very knowledgeable in how to handle my case to lessen the charge. I then hired the Cohen law firm to represent me and am satisfied with the outcome of my case.

Ms. Polster has an excellent understanding of the judicial system and how it works. She accepted my case, when most lawyers told me that I would be wasting my time trying to get my conviction overturned. She was very thorough with collecting information and communicating with me. Ms. Polster helped get my conviction overturned and thanks to her knowledge and dedication to my case I can finally do things without being hindered because of my background. I am definitely referring people to Ms. Polster and her staff of attorneys.

A horrible chain of events led to my house getting searched by detectives who found marijuana plants. I was quite sure my life and career were over. I consulted with a few top attorneys and Jill was the only one that made me feel at ease while also having a complete understanding of the legal avenues that lay ahead. Her experience as a prosecutor was incredibly valuable as it provided a more holistic view of the legal landscape that awaited. It was obvious to me she was very well known and liked amongst the legal community, which helps not only in cultivating relationships but was one of the elements that made me feel so comfortable in what could have been a very dire situation. Many months later I have put this whole incident behind me and am very happy with the results Jill was able to bring to the table. It turns out that neither my life or career were affected and for that I am incredibly grateful!

Jill is one of the most knowledgeable and efficient attorneys I have ever worked with. She communicates on a very timely basis in a straightforward and sensitive manner. I would whole-heartedly recommend Jill.

Excellent ! She was courteous, informative, & sympathetic with me, which is what you want when you speak to a prospective attorney. All attorneys should follow her example, and am truly grateful for consulting with her. Thank you, Jill !

i was arrested last November by Brookhaven Police after being stopped on Lenox road. After managing to post a $20,000.00(thank you Jo and ma) quickly enough to avoid my probation officer from placing a hold on me, I knew I needed to find a special attorney. I was already on probation in dékalb county and with Brookhaven Charging me with 4 counts of possession and intent to distribute my case was bound over to dékalb county superior court. I went and visited Jill at the Cohen law firm and immediately felt better about my situation. I retained her on he spot and she went to work immediately. After coordinating with my probation officer and the prosecution, Jill was able to get my bench warrant repealed and my probation reinstated without me having to visit jail again. That in itself was worth the retainer but she wasn't done there. Upon reviewing the evidence and reports the officer made, Jill discovered something askew. I humbly arrived to court for a hearing regarding a motion to suppress which is a formal request that illegally obtained evidence be barred from the trial. At the hearing the arresting officer was present and Jill was like Tom Cruise in a few good men. The main difference was instead of the officer being honest he simply showed us that he can't handle the truth! Following the motion to suppress being granted, my case was dismissed because without the illegally obtained evidence the D.A. Couldn't prove me guilty. And to top it all off, my probation officer said I was done with my probation and there wasn't any need to have a hearing about it! To anybody seeking justice and m attorney in the Atlanta metropolitan area, set yourself up with a consultation immediately. Thanks again Jill and Andy!
