Highly Recommend
Amber Zehrung of Cohen Defense was recommended to me by an attorney I had worked with in another capacity. She listened to me and the situation at hand. She laid out a plan, she was clear and upfront about her retainer fees and expenses at various stages of litigation. She explained how to reach her effectively as she is in court a lot. Her response times were impeccable. Her office staff were super helpful, engaged and responsive. Amber works in Placer County, she knows her audience be it the judges, district attorneys, public defenders, clerks, bailiffs, and the jury pool. She effectively communicates and negotiates on behalf of her clients. I felt she gave this case her full attention and effort. Engaged, empathetic, aware of issues and injustices in the community, with solid understanding of the law, the venue ( which is a tough one) and the processes. If you or a family member find yourself in a precarious situation requiring a criminal defense attorney you can't go wrong retaining Amber. While I have not seen her in trail, I have seen her in other court appearances. She is prepared, well spoken and knows the law. Makes me wish I went to law school years ago. Our family is grateful to her.
