Learn more about Attorney John J. Kohl

When you have been charged with a criminal offense, there are a few important things to consider. You always want to ensure that your choice of attorney has the experience and knowledge necessary to provide you with the best possible defense, no matter how complicated the case may be because experience matters. John J. Kohl, criminal defense attorney is a highly experienced former County Prosecutor, who has handled thousands of criminal cases in his career. The benefits of working with a former prosecutor from low level misdemeanors to sexual assault and homicide cases can greatly enhance your case and, potentially, the eventual outcome.

I Have Been on Both Sides of the Fight

In the criminal justice system, there are two types of attorneys who spend the majority of their time in criminal court, constantly arguing cases before criminal judges: prosecutors and public defenders. Attorneys with experience in prosecuting cases gain a unique feel for how cases are settled and negotiated, and they know which ones should go to trial. Most, if not all attorneys have and extensive understanding of the law, but the most important knowledge that will apply to defending your case is a practical understanding of strategy, preferences of judges, and trends in the criminal courts. A former prosecutor or county attorney is in the best position to fight for you, having acquired this knowledge in the classroom of experience.

I have fought on both sides of the fight, and now I am on your side. My firm has over 22 years of experience. When you bring your case to me, you will have the full benefit of my wealth of legal knowledge and hard won experience, as I work closely with you to achieve the best possible results for my clients.

Having a defense lawyer with prosecution experience on your side makes it possible for you to level the playing field. Where other attorneys often have to guess at what the State Attorney's next move will be, I can often anticipate the tactics that will be used against you and counter with an effective defense. I know where to look for mistakes on the part of law enforcement and the prosecutor, as well as weaknesses in the evidence which may be exploited to your advantage. I operated on the principle that knowledge is power, and I am frequently able to use the knowledge to resolve charges for offenses such as DUI or a sex crime without ever going to trial.

As a former County Attorney, I have intimate knowledge of the criminal process from both "sides" and will be able to use that invaluable information to help your individual case. I will utilize every aspect of my experience as a former county attorney to benefit your case and your unique situation. If you have been charged with any type of criminal offense, I will be able to review your case and offer you the legal advice you're looking for. I have successfully litigated thousands of cases from minor misdemeanors to complex felonies and you need that experience at work for you.
