The Criminal Defense Lawyer

Attorney Kokonowski, a former prosecutor, draws from his 25 years of trial experience, as well as the contributions of his litigation paralegals, and case managers, to ensure that your case is handled in a proactive and efficient manner.


Attorney Kokonowski handles all criminal defense cases, felonies and misdemeanors, aggressively against the government. He has extensive criminal trial experience, defending his clients against everything from misdemeanor resisting arrest to felony homicide, and all misdemeanors and felonies in between.avvo

Attorney Kokonowski’s vast trial experience ensures that, if a trial is required, you will have the upper hand in the court room, whether it be before a judge, a jury of 6 (in the Commonwealth’s district courts) or a jury of 12 (in the Commonwealth’s superior and federal courts).

His demonstrated ability to analyze the actions of law enforcement ensures that any violation of your rights by police is found and vigorously attacked.

If your Miranda rights were not read to you, Attorney Kokonowski will challenge any statement the police try to use against you. If the police illegally search your car, your home, your property or your person, Attorney Kokonowski will fight to keep anything found out of evidence at your trial.

If there are no technical defenses or the judge has made a mistake and denied any motions that are filed and trial is required, Attorney Kokonowski will bring all the forces of his vast trial experience to bear on the Commonwealth and its case against you.

Attorney Kokonowski’s experience as a former prosecutor not only got him valuable trial experience at a very early stage of his legal career, it gave him the experience of knowing how a prosecutor is trained to think and strategize.
