“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.”

Being accused of any type of sex crime can not only deal severe damage to a person’s reputation, it can haunt him or her for the rest of his or her professional life and personal life. One of the main reasons for this is that when a Georgia resident is found guilty of a sex crime, his or her name may be placed on the a sex offender registry in Dekalb County or elsewhere, meaning anyone can find out about the crime simply by looking it up online. Even setting the registry aside, however, being accused of sex crimes can follow a person for years.

One example of past crimes brought up years later is the recent uncovering of two Georgia Boy Scout leaders who were at some point convicted of allegations involving sexual misconduct with children. One of the former Scout leaders was accused of molesting a boy almost 50 years ago. , While it would appear no charges were filed in connection with this allegation, the accusation still can be traced back to the man decades later. The man served time in prison beginning in the 1990s on an unrelated child molestation charge.

When someone is accused of a sex crime, it is important they seek assistance immediately in order to prevent damage to their reputation as much as possible. Even false accusations can deal incalculable harm to someone’s reputation. Also, there are defenses to sexual assault accusations that the accused may not know of without seeking help. Some of those include consent, mental incapacity and even having an alibi for the time of the alleged incident.

The prosecution has to prove the crime beyond a reasonable doubt. So, if there is an alibi or other credible evidence that can be offered by the defendant in his or her defense, then that could be enough to overcome even some of the most serious charges.

Being accused of a sex crime is something that can potentially haunt the accused person for the rest of his or her life. The most important step to try to prevent that is to seek help immediately.
