San Diego Criminal Defense Attorney Marc S. Kohnen was designated a semi-finalist for the San Diego Daily Transcript’s “Top Attorneys” list for the year of 2013. This is a list that recognizes legal professionals who have been considered by their professional peers to be the top criminal defense attorneys in San Diego County. Even though Attorney Kohnen was not a finalist, he still reached a major milestone by being one of the list’s semi-finalists, considering that only 25 attorneys from each legal practice area are given this status. Attorney Kohnen is the founder of The Law Office of Marc S. Kohnen.

Here’s how the process works—The San Diego Daily Transcript accepts nominations from other attorneys, according to the business news publication’s website. Only the semi-finalists, or the top 25 nominated lawyers in each practice area, move on to the peer voting stage. After the votes are submitted, the lawyers who are ranked in the ten highest rankings in each category are named finalists. Attorneys who are eligible for consideration are those who practice law within the private, corporate, academic or government sectors—particularly in one of 15 categories that have already been selected by the publication. Other requirements include good standing with the California State Bar and a clear record (no disciplinary actions issued against the legal professional). According to its website, the Daily Transcript had more than 800 nominations submitted within the 15 categories.

Attorney is highly dedicated to providing effective legal representation to individuals who are facing criminal charges throughout the San Diego area. The lawyer opened his own criminal defense law firm in San Diego in 2008, which is just a couple of years after he graduated from Thomas Jefferson School of Law. He is prepared to handle both state and federal cases that involve a wide span of criminal charges. Contact The Law Office of Marc S. Kohnen to learn more about our legal services.
