Licensed Professional Charged With Possession Of MDMA, No Jail Time
I met Mark Cogan 3 days after I was arrested for possession of a controlled substance – MDMA. This was my first experience with the criminal justice system and I was completely terrified about the potential consequences of a felony conviction on my record. Mark’s credentials are truly impressive.He has 40 years experience in criminal defense law and has argued cases before the supreme court. He has the distinction of being in the top 2% of lawyers in the country ranked by his peers (Super Lawyer).
His understanding of the law is masterful and he has a calm and confident demeanor that was equally as impressive. A conviction of a felony had the potential of destroying a career that took a lifetime to develop. Mark approached the problem with such skill and his attention to detail was truly remarkable. He reviewed the discovery looking for every detail to try to suppress the evidence. The circumstances involved in my case were unfortunate and there was no way possible to suppress the evidence from the state. Mark was able to develop a plan for persuading the court to reduce the charge to a misdemeanor conviction which resulted in the best outcome possible. In court, Mark was nothing short of masterful. He was able to argue and masterfully negotiate the legal maze procedurally in a very difficult case. The county where the crime occurred is particularly unfavorable for drug possession charges and Mark was able to make a series of arguments which were successful in persuading the court to reduce the charges to a misdemeanor conviction. There was no better outcome possible and Mark’s skills in the courtroom were clearly in a different league than his colleagues. Mark is also an empathetic human being who truly cares about his clients. He pays every attention to detail and truly earns the title of super lawyer in every way.Mark – Thanks again. You saved my life and career!
