This video features David Cohen, a Criminal Law attorney based in New York.
Should you consider hiring a criminal defense attorney who is also a former prosecutor? That's what we asked New York City lawyer David Cohen for this Ask the Lawyers Quick Question.
Having been a former prosecutor, I've been able to sit in discussions and charging discussions with both federal and state law enforcement officers, so I've heard how they've conducted their investigations, I've heard about what their concerns are with charging and what they look for. I've heard about what it is that is not that important to them despite being criminal activity, and what is vital to them in their investigations. Knowing how prosecutors, knowing how law enforcement, knowing how FBI agents or IRS agents think allows us to stay one step ahead of them and to give them what they want without threatening or jeopardizing my client's freedom or position.
