Most people would not think of a lawyer as being an essential worker. But if you are accused of a crime there is no one more essential than your lawyer. Masked or unmasked, Barry Zimmerman and the lawyers of the Cohen Defense Group have been protecting you for nearly four decades. We are proud to share in the recognition our senior attorney Barry Zimmerman has received as one of the Sacramento region’s best criminal defense attorneys. The Cohen Defense Group is Placer County’s largest and most experienced private criminal defense firm. Barry, Susan Gellman, and Kevin Burdick have each practiced law for more than 30 years. The firm’s founder, David Cohen and Barry have worked together for 25 years. Both are certified as Specialists in Criminal Law by the State Bar of California. Barry and Alison Cohen, Placer County’s most experienced juvenile defense attorney, have worked together for over 20 years. Barry and Amber Zehrung, who supervises our Roseville offices and trains our new associates, have been in practice together for 15 years. Our three newest attorneys, Zachary Merliss from USC School of Law, Matthew Friedman from UC Hastings College of the Law, and Danielle Nygren from UC Irvine School of Law have quickly demonstrated their worth as advocates on behalf of the firm’s clients. The Cohen Defense Group has an exceptional team of lawyers that has earned the reputation as the best defenders in the Sacramento region. Thank you to our peers and Sacramento magazine for this honor.
