“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 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!!”

Atlanta Police arrest man allegedly connected to shooting

On Behalf of | Jan 16, 2013 | Felonies |

Being accused of shooting a man is an offense that should always be taken seriously since the penalties are likely quite steep. When that shooting takes place in broad daylight in a drive-by-shooting like manner, the allegations are likely to be even more serious and likely include multiple felonies.

This is what one man from Atlanta is facing. He was arrested recently in connection to a killing that took place back in October. A man was sitting in his car, and was shot multiple times at a busy intersection in broad day light. The alleged shooters then left the scene of the crime. The suspect, who was arrested for allegedly being connected to the crime, is facing multiple felony charges, including a felony murder charge and aggravated assault charges. He is the second man to be arrested in connection to this murder.

This case involves serious charges, and, if found guilty, the accused would likely be in prison for a long time, if not the rest of his life. However, even with charges this serious, there are strong criminal defenses that can be made. With a felony murder charge, the murder itself is based on one specific underlying felony that was allegedly being committed at that time of the murder. A strong defense is that if the accused can be found not guilty of the underlying felony, then the accused cannot be guilty of the murder either. This is in addition to many other defenses that can be put forth as well.

Once someone is accused of a serious felony, it should always be taken seriously and help should be sought out immediately. Seeking out help immediately makes it more likely that the allegations can be reduced or thrown out entirely.
