Attorney Deborah Cohen was a great pleasure to work with! She took the time to explain everything to me with a great amount of patience and thoroughness even before I officially hired her to handle my case. And thorughout the process she was very calm, personable and thorough in researching my unique case and proposing solutions. I also appreciated her prosposing alternatives to me and allowing me to choose which way to proceed based on their consequences, instead of imposing her opinion on me. At the end, we won the case due to her thoroughness and reputation with the representatives in court!

I am very happy with the way Ms. Cohen handled my case. She advised me to go to a trial. We did, and the judge said I was Not Guilty. I would highly recommend Ms. Cohen to anyone facing criminal charges.

My husband was arrested while working. He is a license City of Chicago reposseser. He was charged with battery. I(his wife) called 911 because I was hit by the man my husband was protecting me from. The case went to court, Deborah was fully prepared, she prepared us on all cineriose, all documentation and options were taken in account. We feared that my husband would be going to jail. No matter who you are, you always think of the worst possible cinerioe. Deborah was upfront, very certain of what would happen in court but didn't lie and not tell us what could happen if things went wrong. I would use Deborah again and refer her to everyone or anyone that could use her expertise.
