“Hired Matt Hirsch at a distance to take on a traffic case with a missed mandatory court appearance (or two). Even as the case dragged on longer than anticipated (not the fault in any way of the lawyer), and indeed went a couple rounds, Mr. Hirsch remained engaged, positive, and proactive. I firmly believe he and his firm resolved my case with the best outcome for me. Would recommend Cohen & Hirsch for cases of my type without reservation, and his working for me at a fairly great distance, without my ever appearing back in state, deserves particular note”

“Matt was great. The day I called him he jumped right in and a week later charges were dropped! He’s my guy here on out. Not to mention he saved me 3k from the first firm I called.”

“Matt was a great treasure! Always kept calm and let me be the same. Looking at his fb feed, I was convinced he’s the right person for me. Helped get through a difficult situation. His fees were also comparable to the others given the amount of personal attention he paid to the case. Never had the trouble of dealing with the paralegals(as we all know what happens). He was always available on text. Great experience!!”

Andy M. Cohen



Atlanta, GA

Andy Cohen began his legal career as a public defender in Dalton, Georgia where he gained valuable experience representing hundreds of clients in Whitfield and Murray Counties. Andy moved to Atlanta in 2009, where he hung out his shingle, and started The Cohen Law Firm, now known as Cohen & Hirsch Criminal Defense.

Throughout his legal career, Andy was a caring and fierce advocate for his clients. He will be fondly remembered in the legal community as the lawyer who always had a smile and a hug for everyone he encountered in the courthouses where he practiced.

In addition to being a skilled and well-respected attorney, Andy was a brilliant musician beloved in the Atlanta music scene. Nearly every weekend he thrilled audiences with his beautiful voice and his ability to play solos that set his guitar on fire.
Andy was a proud and loving father to his son, a devoted soulmate to his life partner and law partner Jill Polster, a loyal friend, and dedicated bandmate. He will be forever missed by those who were fortunate to know him, love him, and be loved by him.
