“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!!”

Man arrested for alleged shooting in Dekalb County

On Behalf of | Feb 26, 2013 | Domestic Violence |

It is often best to try to work out arguments peacefully inside one’s own home, and to try to let cooler heads prevail. However, one argument seems to have led to a man being charged with alleged domestic violence after the death of a 20-year-old Georgia woman.

The 20-year-old woman was found in Dekalb County just outside a residence. Witnesses claim that they saw a man shoot the woman and then area in a car.

Since that time, a 22-year-old man was arrested in connection with the incident, but was not immediately charged. Police stated that the two individuals in this case have been involved in previous domestic disturbances. Additionally, police also have received reports that the two individuals had been arguing earlier in the day.

Anyone facing domestic assault charges, no matter what they are, could benefit from a full understanding of their legal rights and obligations. If a defendant faces a domestic violence conviction, there are often serious consequences that aren’t explicitly included in the sentence, including a damaged personal or professional reputation.

Oftentimes, allegations related to domestic violence stem from an argument that got out of hand or could be construed as self-defense. Further, even when there is a death involved, there are often significant defenses that can be put forth, for example, arguing that the defendant lacked the requisite mental state to perform whatever crime he or she is being accused of.

Facing domestic assault charges should always be taken seriously. Seeking help can provide reassurance that the criminal process will proceed and conclude in a fair manner.
