Russell S Kohn
Kohn Law Office
As an attorney for people, Mr. Kohn is attentive and responsive to his clients. Each client's case is personally handled by him, rather than by paralegals or office staff. He believes that a successful resolution of a case is only achieved if the client is satisfied with the result. He also believes that a satisfied client is one who is fully informed about the applicable law, facts, and available options. For this reason, Mr. Kohn keeps each client fully informed, and is always accessible to his clients by phone and office visits. He is trustworthy, experienced, and aggressive for his clients. The experience and integrity he brings to each case has earned Mr. Kohn extensive recognition among his peers, including the distinction of being among the top 5 percent of attorneys endorsed by Super Lawyers in 2007 due to outstanding achievement. He was also elected by his peers as President of the Bar Association of Northern San Diego County for 2004, and was thereafter elected to a three-year term as a director of the San Diego County Bar Association in 2005.
