“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!!”

Five accused of serious drug offenses near Atlanta after bust

On Behalf of | Feb 7, 2013 | Drug Charges |

Any time there are accusations that people have committed drug offenses, they should each take it seriously. When drug charges include a charge of intent to distribute, then they each need to think about the strongest defense possible.

For five defendants near Atlanta, they must now contemplate those defenses to drug charges. The five were arrested in a bust at the Coosawattee River Resort, in the camper section. The drug charges included possession of Xanax and hydrocodone and possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine. The investigation allegedly lasted for five months and is supposedly still ongoing, so it is possible that the five could face more charges.

Anyone in a similar situation to these defendants could face serious consequences. For that reason, you should seek help immediately in order to explore your options and to decide on the best defense. A proper defense, if successful, can be used to reduce charges or even have some thrown out entirely. In the case of a large-scale drug bust, especially in an open area like a resort, campground or a warehouse, possible defenses may include the police performing an improper search and seizure or that they lacked a search warrant to search the area. Another defense might be that the drugs found did not belong to any of the individual defendants. Finally, pleading guilty to a lesser charge may be to the defendant’s benefit in some cases, depending on the circumstances

Being charged with possession and intent to distribute are serious charges that should not be taken lightly. However, by building a strong defense, the accused may be able to minimize the consequences of a conviction or escape a conviction altogether.
