Fantastic A+ service. Got my DUI down to a Wreck less Driving. Very thorough and very approachable. Hopefully this will be the one and only time I need his services but if something were to happen, I wouldn’t hesitate using Marc again!
-Brian T.

Marc is an excellent Attorney. As others mention, I would prefer not to go into to much detail about my case. It was not a DUI, it was a very difficult situation Marc always answers phone calls and text messages, even if his is away on a family vacation. He takes every clients needs very seriously, and is prompt in providing resolutions to issues. He has worked above and beyond the scope of my case, even going into providing assistance into other avenues of legal issues he wasn’t retained for. I give him 5 stars as a person, and an Attorney. He deserves it.
-Michael B.

I was in San Diego on Business when my incident happened. I immediately contacted Attorney Kohnen on a referral and it was definitely a good decision. He was prompt and always returned my calls. He handled all my court appearances and even found me the resources in my area to help me get my license back ASAP. He guided me throughout the entire process and is still helping to get the conviction expunged. I highly suggest calling Attorney Kohnen for any of your legal trouble and I can assure you will not be disappointed.
-Brian G.

Where do I begin??? There is not enough stars here to express his top notch services, intelligent, aggressive, and knowledge in all criminal cases. He not only won my DMV hearing, but beat both a dui & felony violation. I have meet a lot of attorneys out there but no one as smart and aggressive as Mr. Kohnen!

Competent & Caring Attorney

Marc Kohnen represented my brother who was innocently used as a blind-mule to transport drugs in his car. Marc succeeded in getting charges dropped. We found him to be a very competent and caring attorney who works hard to represent the interest of his clients and family. We are very appreciative of all that he did and highly recommend his services.

Marc was very knowledgeable, personable, responsive, and available. The court and DMV process for a DUI is difficult to navigate to say the least. Marc was there by our side every step of the way. Hiring Marc was the best thing that could have happened to us. I highly recommended him.

Very Informative

“When I had to find an attorney for a friend I called about 5 offices. Although I did not speak to Marc directly that evening, I did speak to an Attorney David (works with Marc) who was very informative and put my mind at ease. Marc ended up representing my friend and it was a much better outcome than we thought. Marc is courteous, professional and very responsive. I highly recommend him.”
