Attorney Profile

From the Kohn Law Office in Oceanside, California, Russell S. Kohn represents personal injury plaintiffs throughout San Diego and the North County. Devoted to representing people, not companies, Mr. Kohn has consistently returned maximum compensation for victims of negligence. San Diego Magazine named him as one of the Top Lawyers of San Diego.  In 2004, Mr. Kohn was elected President of the North County Bar Association.  He currently serves as a board member of that organization's Lawyer Referral Service.

Since 1987, Mr. Kohn has been exclusively focused on handling personal injury cases that involve incidents such as premises liability, slip-and-fall accidents, motor vehicle accidents and animal bites. When a rear-end car accident caused a 50-year-old man neck and back injuries, Mr. Kohn secured $1 million on his behalf. He also reached a $302,000 award after a 71-year-old man who suffered a dog attack that resulted in surgery.

For these and countless other victories, Mr. Kohn has been listed in The National Trial Lawyers: Top 100; he holds the highest peer rating possible of AV Preeminent* from Martindale-Hubbell; has an Avvo 10.0 "Superb" rating; and is listed in Super Lawyers for 2017.

After earning a Bachelor of Science in accounting from The University of Arizona in 1981, Mr. Kohn received a Juris Doctor in 1984 from the University of Arizona James E. Rogers College of Law.
