"I have no fear and will challenge any decision and take your case
all the way to trial." - Jill R. Cohen
My experience as an Assistant District Attorney in Philadelphia and a Camden County Prosecutor for 15 years gives me a unique advantage to help you. I can navigate through the criminal system and have a working relationship with local prosecutors and court staff in all South Jersey Counties. I have handled hundreds of cases including criminal, juvenile, appeals, grand jury, drug sales and use, sex crimes, homicides, guns and assaults, and DUI throughout the State of New Jersey.
I have won numerous cases as a County Prosecutor and as an attorney representing criminal defendants. Most recently, I gained an acquittal of a client who was charged with eleven counts of voter fraud in one of the longest cases ever tried in New Jersey. I am one of several attorneys who has been recommended by peers to be certified in the field of criminal law by the New Jersey Supreme Court, placing me in a unique situation to defend you.
I have been able to get many cases dismissed entirely because of a violation of your constitutional rights. Early intervention will enable us to get charges downgraded, better sentencing options and dismissals early on. There are many alternatives to a conviction that can follow you for a lifetime. I know that many domestic violence charges can be handled without convictions or final restraining orders and violations of restraining orders can be negotiated. Most importantly, you should know that I will fight for you all the way and have no fear of trying any cases.
