“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”

“I found Andy Cohen via a google search and after our initial phone conversation I was happy to hire him. The circumstances that drove me to solicit an attorney were sensitive to say the least. He was kind, sympathetic and detailed which I appreciated very much. He kept me well informed throughout the hearing process and Andy always made sure to be available if I had any questions or concerns. I highly recommend Andy and his team to help you through what is likely a difficult process.”

“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!!”

“Wow, what an unexpected experience. We have all heard the horror stories and the jokes about lawyers. Well, I've been fortunate not to have had reason to use a lawyer... until now. Or at least that is what I thought. I don't want to get into the details, but I had sent an inquiry into the firm through their website and Andy reached out to me. He was patient, professional and funny. He spent a good 15 to 20 minutes on the phone with me. Explained to me in detail what I could expect. And recommended that I don't actually need a lawyer for what I have to do. I can't express my sincere gratitude enough. In the event I ever do need a lawyer, I know exactly who I'm calling.”

Heroin seized in DEA sting focused on Atlanta

On Behalf of | Aug 3, 2012 | Drug Charges |

The federal Drug Enforcement Administration recently teamed up with the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office to investigate and build a case against several individuals they think were involved in trafficking heroin — a charge that law enforcement can make based upon the weight of any substances that they find.

The DEA’s investigation came to a head this week when they conducted a raid that agents had planned for a period of time. During this raid, agents found at least 86 pounds of heroin, an amount that they will surely use to attempt to levy trafficking charges against those they believe they can tie to the drugs.

The amount of heroin that was seized would be worth approximately $5 million if sold on the streets. The heroin was found behind the drywall in a home. Also seized in the raid were two weapons, 4.4 pounds of crack crystal methamphetamine worth approximately $132,000 and $50,000 in U.S. currency.

A subsequent raid was conducted at a second home, but agents refused to provide extensive details on that raid as it remains an ongoing investigation. What was confirmed was that $2 million in U.S. currency was found at the second location.

Three men were also arrested in the DEA-run raid. These men were a 21-year-old, 32-year-old and a 36-year-old. While the identity of the two was not confirmed, it appears as though two of the men were Mexican nationals, which would mean that they could face further penalties such as deportation.

DEA agents said that the men were tied to a group that they had conducted a rain on nearly one year ago. In that raid, a total of 77 pounds of heroin was seized.
