Criminal Defense
Savannah, Georgia Criminal Defense Attorney
If you have been accused of a crime, don't let the prosecution bully you into an unfair deal. Stand up for your rights, and hire a dedicated criminal defense attorney who will let the prosecution know that you mean business. Attorney Davis Cohen has more than 40 years of experience defending Savannah clients against criminal charges, providing aggressive representation with proven results.

Ensuring a valiant fight for your freedom
I am devoted to protecting clients' freedom. I challenge the prosecution to prove its case and do everything in our power to help eliminate or reduce any potential sentence. I know that witnesses may lie on the stand, that crime scenes can be tampered with, and that police officers can make mistakes. I personally speak with witnesses to ensure they are telling the whole truth. I can examine the alleged crime scene with a fine-toothed comb, searching for evidence that can help prove your innocence. I also analyze police records and bring in experts to challenge the prosecution's theories.

Nothing is more important than your freedom. If you need a defense attorney who is dedicated to your case, contact Davis Cohen today.

Protecting clients for more than 40 years
I represent clients in the following criminal matters:

Felonies
If you have been charged with a felony, it is essential to have an experienced criminal defense attorney zealously defend you in court. Felonies are extremely serious crimes murder, rape, armed robbery, credit card fraud and burglary and have serious consequences. A convicted felon will be sentenced to serve at least one year in a state or federal prison, and may be committed for life. In addition, convicted felons are stripped of many of the rights guaranteed to American citizens, including the right to vote, the right to travel out of the country and the right to own a gun. Convicted felons also have to disclose their crimes on job applications, and can be deported if they are not American citizens.

How you handle a felony charge canMake the difference between life and death. I have more than 40 years of experience handling felony charges, and I will work to attain the best possible result for you.

Misdemeanors
Misdemeanors are crimes punishable by less than one year in prison and may include such offenses as disorderly conduct, simple assault, shoplifting and trespassing. Although misdemeanors are less serious than felonies, having a misdemeanor conviction on your criminal record can limit your employment options and require you to spend time in jail. Let me represent you and ensure that you receive a fair trial.

Motor vehicle offenses
If you have been charged with operating a vehicle under the influence of drugs or alcohol, driving with a suspended license, or committing vehicular manslaughter, I can help put you back in the driver's seat. I also assist clients in restoring their drivers licenses and fighting traffic tickets.

Drug crimes
Being charged with trafficking, distributing, or possessing illegal substances or paraphernalia can result in heavy fines and extended time in jail. You can rely on my knowledge of drug crimes and my history of successful results to help you minimize or eliminate the charges against you.

Sexual offenses
Rape and sexual assault cases are among the hardest for defendants to win. I have the experience and skills to successfully argue these cases. Contact me today.

Sealing and expunging records
A criminal record can prevent a person from pursuing higher education, securing a job or traveling abroad. I can help you eliminate past criminal charges from your record, or seal those records to help you move on in the future.
