DRUG OFFENSES

When you are charged with a drug offense, you are not going to get any favors from the criminal justice system. In Maryland, prosecutors are especially serious about drug distribution charges. As such, you need a strong and effective lawyer who knows how to defend you against these charges. When you hire the Law Offices of Kerri Cohen to represent you, we will:

  • Review every aspect of the evidence
  • Analyze all potential search and seizure issues and other constitutional issues
  • Find any violations of police procedures in drug raids and arrests
  • Examine all other legal and factual aspects of your drug case
  • Hire professional investigators (if necessary)

The Cohen Legal Team will work to build a strong defense to the charges based on the facts and the law. At the conclusion of the criminal case, we can also help seek the restitution of property seized in drug raids and arrests. Our firm has the experience to defend clients and protect their Constitutional rights when charged with any variety of drug offenses, including but not limited to:

  • Possession of a controlled substance
  • Possession with the Intent to Distribute
  • Drug distribution and Drug Trafficking crimes
  • Distribution of any controlled dangerous substance
  • Trafficking crimes

DUI/DWI

In recent years, public attitudes toward impaired driving have changed. Judges now interpret the law more strictly and impose harsher sentences. As such, building a strong legal defense is key to minimizing the consequences you face.

Over the past 13 years, The Law Offices of Kerri Cohen has represented clients accused of DUI, DWI, traffic violations and other criminal offenses. We believe in taking an assertive approach toward the defense of our clients’ rights and freedom. Our goal is to obtain the best outcome possible — one that minimizes the penalties you face and minimizes the impact on your life.

A DUI or DWI arrest triggers a process that can lead to the loss of your driver’s license. To avoid the suspension of your license you must request a Motor Vehicle Administration (MVA) hearing within 10 days of your arrest. The Law Offices of Kerri Cohen can represent you at this hearing and seek to help you avoid a suspension of your driver’s license or help to obtain a temporary license.

In preparation for trial, we will examine all of the evidence against you to determine the best strategy. Sometimes police officers and prosecutors make mistakes in alcohol related driving cases, and we will carefully analyze all of the evidence against you to find those errors, and use them to your advantage. Whenever possible, we will:

  • Attack the legality of the car stop
  • Question the “field sobriety tests”
  • Seek to discredit the Breathalyzer test results on technical or procedural grounds
  • Find other methods of showing the absence of probable cause for arrest

An arrest for DUI or DWI is serious. The Law Offices of Kerri Cohen will work to preserve your freedom, keep you on the road and minimize the consequences you face. For an initial consultation with an experienced DUI/DWI attorney at the Law Offices of Kerri Cohen, call 410-657-2515 or  send us an e-mail.

We represent clients in both Maryland Circuit Court, District Court and Federal Courts, for both misdemeanor and felony offenses. We serve clients in Baltimore City, Baltimore County, Carroll County, Howard County, Anne Arundel County and Harford County.

TRAFFIC OFFENSES

Even one traffic ticket can cause your insurance rates to increase. Certain tickets can even lead to the loss of your driver’s license. The financial burden and stress related to potentially finding alternate transportation arrangements can be overwhelming, especially if you do not have an experienced attorney to help you evaluate all of your options.

The Cohen Legal Team has over 13 years of experience helping you minimize the points that go on your driving record, reducing the fines you pay, and defending you against traffic offenses. We understand how to identify the weak points in the State’s case and will work tirelessly to help you obtain the best outcome possible. We represent clients accused of all types of traffic violations, including but not limited to:

  • Speeding
  • Reckless driving
  • Negligent driving
  • Driving with a suspended or revoked license
  • Driving without insurance
  • Leaving the scene of an accident
  • Any other civil or criminal traffic violation or offense

Every case is unique, and it takes an experienced eye to discern how to handle the situation properly to get the best possible outcome. Sometimes the police officer never bothers to appear in court, and we know how to make the most of that opportunity for you. There may be discrepancies between the way the ticket was written up and the officer’s narrative of the event, and we have experience utilizing these mistakes to your advantage. When possible, we also seek the restoration of a suspended or revoked driver’s license.

For an initial consultation with an experienced traffic offense defense attorney at the Law Offices of Kerri Cohen, call 410-657-2515 or  send us an e-mail. We serve clients in Baltimore City, Baltimore County, Carroll County, Howard County, Anne Arundel County and Harford County.

Violent Crimes (Assault etc.)

Our goal is always to minimize the negative consequences of an arrest on assault charges or for another violent crime. Our strategy will depend on the exact circumstances of the case. We conduct an immediate and independent investigation — tracking down and interviewing witnesses, reviewing police reports and reviewing forensics analyses.

Once we have a clear understanding of the facts of the case, we build a defense strategy. That strategy may involve negotiation for dismissal based on exculpatory facts we uncover during investigation. It may involve negotiation of a plea bargain to a lesser charge. If necessary, we have the resources and experience to fight for a not-guilty verdict in front of a jury.

When charged with a serious crime, you need representation by an experienced and knowledgeable criminal defense lawyer. Your freedom and your future are at stake. We are experienced, knowledgeable and zealous in defending our clients’ rights and freedom.
