    I highly recommend hiring Marc Kohnen if you need a defense attorney. He is very knowledgeable, extremely professional, friendly and communicative. Marc advised me to do one thing prior to my hearing which probably saved me $1000 in fines.  He always replied to emails and phone calls, usually within a day. His office staff, especially Brittany, were great to work with. I believe Marc provided me with the best possible representation, and his retainer was very reasonable.Marc is the kind of guy I would enjoy hanging out with under different circumstances. I hope to never again need a criminal defense attorney, but if I do you can bet I'll call Marc's office.  I recommend him to you as well.

    Attorney Marc Kohnen is far beyond the best attorney you will find! 5 years ago I hired him to assist me with my DUI case, I revisited him for an expungement to clear my record, my expungement was approved ! and now I am able to apply for my real estate license, my Sentri Pass, and my Uber and Lyft driver application, Marc Kohnen and his assistant Noemi Vargas go above and beyond! you will not be disappointed! I highly recommend them and I would use them over and over again if ever needed.

    After randomly becoming the victim of insurance fraud and the court system not listening to anything I say, I decided to give in and look for a lawyer. I consulted with several different well-known local attorneys but they all seemed so phony and as though they didn't care at all about me and the fact that I was actually innocent. I brought my case to Marc one day, and he actually read my police reports and witness statements that I had already put together. None of the other attorneys made any effort to actually read it and see what was happening! Marc told me I could take my time to decide if I wanted to hire him or not, and a few days later, I did. Signing paperwork and making payments was super easy, and Marc was available to answer questions at any time. He actually reached out to me several times to update me of any news in my case, whether it be of minor or major importance. He also kept me informed of ALL pieces instead of just twisting things to sound positive and trying to patronize me. He never insulted my intelligence; instead he shared almost everything with me because I already knew that the court system was ridiculous and senseless. Eventually, after months of unnecessary court dates and continuances, Marc got the prosecutor to dismiss my case. Even though I'm not wealthy and had to take out a loan to pay him, it was absolutely worth it. Marc is great to work with, and I would definitely seek his assistance again if I had to.

    I've worked with several law offices in the past, but Marc Kohnen was the most helpful out of all of them. He's reasonably priced & will guide you through the whole process. That's what makes him stand out from the rest. There was never any lack of communication, which makes you feel at ease. I've referred a handful of people to him, & all have had positive reviews. Even though I haven't needed a lawyer for a few years, he still keeps in touch. I feel more like a friend, instead of a client. He's a life saver.

    I don't even know where to begin when explaining the impact that Marc had on my life.  After getting arrested last year, and thoroughly researching some other attorneys, The Law Office of Marc S Kohnen was the right pick for a number of reasons.Firstly, Marc is a no nonsense type of guy,  My offense was weak in the grand scheme of things, but Marc's advice for me to go to a residential rehab was the only way we could get any type of mercy from the DA, it seemed.  However, when Marc said something to the effect about me having a life to live beyond the drug problem I had, beyond attempted appeasement to the courts, I knew what I had to do.  Marc is a caring guy and wanted me to live a good life beyond his taking my money and representing me in court.  Hard to find in the profession these days.....!!!!!His legal actions were realistic and positive, while playing it safe.  Regarding cost/value?  Definitely feel I got my money's worth, and then some.  His office was fabulous and his staff were always in communication with me about the next steps we were going to be taking.  Every single time I called his Law office, someone answered; NEVER once did I get a voicemail box.  Based upon my legal engagements with Marc Kohnen, I observed nothing less than a clever, concise, honest, smart, and compassionate attorney!   Every now and then, things just fall into place.  Everything Marc suggested for me to do to get out of that mess and live a life free of drugs, has me on an Upward path in my life... no longer a slow, downward spiral!I'm not going to say that I EVER anticipate to personally NEED to utilize Marc's services again, but he'd be the first person I call! THanks Marc!  Nothing less than 5 stars.

    I can't say enough good things about Marc Kohnen.  From the very start he was calming and made me feel like I had a great friend on my side.  His communication is awesome and I never had a problem getting ahold of him if I had a question or concern.  I wish it was possible to give him more than 5 stars, he deserves them!  If I ever find myself in trouble again Marc will be the first person I call.  If you need a criminal defense lawyer call him you won't regret it.

    A while back I needed some legal assistance and Mr. Kohnen came recommended to me. Mr. Kohnen and his staff were extremely helpful and reassuring, and the matter was resolved in a satisfactory manner. Even after things were settled, Mr. Kohnen and his staff assisted me above and beyond the call of duty in helping me with some follow-up matters after I had moved to another state. I would highly recommend Mr. Kohnen to anyone.
