About the Law Office of Ryan T. Kocot

Sacramento DUI Attorney at Work

Sacramento Cannabis Attorney

Attorney Kocot’s marijuana practice is a one-stop-shop for existing cannabis businesses, as well as for marijuana entrepreneurs attempting to enter the industry. Attorney Kocot’s extensive experience defending against marijuana DUIs and other cannabis-related criminal charges lead to an expansion of the practice to offer cannabis business to services to marijuana manufacturers, cultivators, distributors, and retailers. Services include:

  • Licensing
  • Compliance
  • Day-to-Day Operations
  • Business Formation
  • Employment and Human Resources
  • Employee and Customer/Patient Education

A similar approach is taken with the Sacramento marijuana business practice. Attorney Kocot treats each cannabis client as an individual and focuses on their specific legal needs. Anyone can find general information about marijuana and marijuana law, but the reality is this:

The law is changing on a daily basis.

Given the ever-changing nature of state and local marijuana law, and given that cannabis is still classified as a Schedule One substance by the Federal Government, it’s critical that you have someone in your corner that can ensure you’re in strict compliance with state and local law

In addition to working with cannabis businesses, Attorney Kocot speaks at marijuana events across California, and is regularly published by the Continuing Education of the California Bar (CEB) Marijuana Law Hub.

Sacramento DUI Lawyer

Attorney Kocot’s career started off with an internship at the Sacramento County Public Defender’s Office. During his internship, he was exposed to just about every criminal charge in the book, but took particular interest in Driving Under the Influence (DUI) charges. After defending hundreds of juvenile and adult clients, Attorney Kocot decided it was time to open his own practice.

In most circumstances, DUI charges represent the first and last time someone interacts with the criminal justice systems. That’s exactly why Attorney Kocot has focused his practice on Sacramento DUI defense: to help people out who may or may not have made a mistake that most of us are likely guilty of if we are honest with ourselves. No one is here to support or encourage Sacramento DUIs, but one’s life also does not need to be ruined by virtue of an isolated error in judgment. Attorney Kocot’s passion for DUI defense was recognized when he was named a Top 10 Dui Defense Lawyer in California. He remains active and up to date on cutting-edge DUI defenses with his membership in the California DUI Association.

Each and every Sacramento DUI charge is unique. The facts of each case are unique, and the questions and concerns of each client are unique. Attorney Kocot, therefore, takes a holistic approach to defending against DUI charges in Sacramento that treats each and every client as an individual. In other words, this practice is not one to take a glance at a police report and suggest a client accept an offer with doing little to do no work. This practice is not a mill. While most cases do not go to trial, Attorney Kocot treats each case like it is by obtaining the following information in every single case:

  • All Police Reports
  • Any Video Generated
  • Any Audio Generated
  • Maintenance/Calibration logs associated with any breath machine used
  • Litigation packets associated with any blood sample taken

Attorney Kocot can never guarantee any particular result if you hire him. No attorney can. But what he can guarantee is that you will feel like you got your fair shake.

Sacramento Criminal Defense Attorney

In addition to defending against DUI charges, Attorney Kocot also defends against other charges. In fact, Attorney Kocot contracts with the County of Sacramento as trial attorney as part of the Sacramento Indigent Defense Panel. Through his experience at the Sacramento County Public Defender’s Office, the Sacramento Indigent Defense Panel, and private practice, Attorney Kocot has defended people against just about every criminal charge you can think of. These charges include, but are not limited to:

  • Petty Theft
  • Drunk in public
  • Solicitation
  • Prostitution
  • Fraud- Insurance, Real Estate, Credit Card, Welfare etc.
  • Assault and Battery
  • Child Endangerment
  • Possession of controlled substance
  • Brandishing
  • And the list goes on!

Attorney Kocot takes a similar approach defending against general criminal charges as he does defending against DUI charges: each Sacramento criminal defense client is treated as an individual with unique questions and concerns. Although most cases do not go to trial, each and every case is defended at the pre-trial stage as if it's going to proceed to trial. This approach ensures evidence potentially crucial to your defense is not overlooked.
