IF YOU ARE LIKE MOST OF MY CLIENTS, YOU HAVE PROBABLY NEVER BEEN IN TROUBLE WITH THE LAW BEFORE, AND WOULD NEVER HAVE IMAGINED THAT ONE DAY YOU WOULD BE SEARCHING ONLINE TO FIND A SAN DIEGO CRIMINAL DEFENSE ATTORNEY.

…and like most of my clients, the current possibility of facing the criminal justice system, a system that has been exposed for its many faults and resulting mass incarceration, is causing you and your family to feel anxious and overwhelmed as to what the future may hold. When the time comes, however, and the reality that you or your loved one is potentially facing a criminal accusation; you need to act quickly to ensure your rights are protected and that the preparation of your defense is proactive not reactive. Although this may feel like your darkest hour in life, my job is to find the light at the end of the tunnel, and get you there by any means necessary. For over eight years, I have consistently found the light for my clients – obtaining Not Guilty verdicts at trial from criminal allegations ranging from first degree murder to DUI, dismissals of all types of felony and misdemeanor cases, and negotiated plea bargains to avoid jail for my clients as a San Diego Criminal Defense lawyer.

  • Great criminal defense – Thanks Marc! Before you call another lawyer, talk to Marc! He was able to get my DUI dismissed even though I thought my situation was beyond hopeless. He also charged me less than the three other lawyers I spoke to. I couldn’t be happier with my choice of lawyers. Thanks Marc!

  • Marc Kohnen is a very professional and skilled attorney. I’d say he is the best in town! He was extremely helpful in helping us out and has assured us along the way of what to anticipate and expect. He knows his stuff and what I like the best about him is his attention to our needs regardless of what day of the week it was. He has always been so accommodating to our needs and has gone above and beyond our expectations. He is the type of person that you can trust and most importantly he has taken the worry out of the situation so we ALWAYS felt at ease.

  • I would not want to suggest anyone else to you. Marc is straightforward and honest from the onset of his cases all the way through till the end. When I met him I was quite shaken up by the circumstances I had found myself in. Mr. Kohnen exumed a cool and confidence unsuspected from an attorney that seemed so young. It turned out that he is a most aggressive and thourough defense attorney and I would not want my future to be in the hands of any other. Hopefully if you have a loved one or friend that has found themselves in trouble you will be able to find yourselves a friend in Marc as I have.

  • As a local Private Investigator it is common for my clients to also need good, sound legal advice. When this occurs, the first name I give them is Marc Kohnen. Mr. Kohnen is an accomplished criminal defense attorney, who understands the needs of his clients and knows how to handle delicate situations. Take it from another professional, who frequently works with those in the legal profession, The Law Office of Marc S. Kohnen should be your first call.
