Attorney Michael Cohen in my opinion is the best criminal defense lawyer in this part of the state. His attitude and willingness to help in any type of court case makes for an awesome lawyer. I would recommend Mr. Cohen to anyone who needs a good lawyer when criminal defense is needed.

I recommend this attorney. Many years ago I was charged with being a Party to a Crime in Eau Claire County. I was referred to this attorney and spoke with him at the time, but did feel I had the available resources to retain his assistance. Subsequently, I ended up taking a plea that had me convicted of a violent misdemeanor charge.
Over the next several years, this charge ended up costing me countless times the very reasonable fee he would have required in retracted job offerings, as I even had potential employers retract job offerings upon completion of an unsuccessful background check. Needless to say, I regretted not finding a way to afford his expertise for many years.
Recently, I hired Mr. Cohen to assist me in getting my charges amended to lesser charges and he performed remarkably. I was very impressed with his honesty, knowledge, expertise and accurately managing my expectations of what he may or may not have been able to accomplish. I still regret having not hired him to represent me in my initial case, but I am thankful he was available for me when I needed him recently. I would hire him again and would highly recommend his services to anyone that has a case that falls into his areas of expertise.
All I can say is, "Hire Mike now or regret it later."

I highly endorse this lawyer. I had the pleasure of attending the DUI Defense Lawyers Association summer conference with Atty. Cohen. Michael is an extremely skilled and knowledgeable trial attorney. I would have no hesitation referring a friend or family member to Atty. Cohen.

While Mike and I do not work together anymore, I believe Mike to be hands-down the number one defense attorney in the area. He might not be warm and fuzzy, but he gets the job done and does a great job for his clients. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Mike.
