“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 near Atlanta faces criminal charges as a hit and run suspect

On Behalf of | Mar 4, 2013 | Criminal Defense |

Facing allegations of a hit-and-run is a scary proposition for any person, especially if he believes he is innocent. However, when the criminal charges against the defendant possibly include a DUI, in addition to the hit-and-run, a serious criminal defense needs to be considered immediately.

This appears to be the case for a 22-year-old man who is the prime suspect in a hit-and-run accident that injured a 19-year-old female. Police believe the suspect may have been drinking at the time, and claim that he has a history of alcohol related incidents. The police also claim that the truck the driver was in contained beer bottles. No arrest has been made even though the police have already questioned over 30 people. The police also claim that the suspect and his family are not cooperating. The family says they are cooperating, even offering to bring the suspect in three times, but the police refused to speak with him. An arrest warrant has not yet been issued.

Facing any type of felony charge involving a hit-and-run and alcohol charges requires a strong defense. When police work as hard as they can to gather evidence, defendants might feel like the deck seems stacked against them. However, there are still many defenses to the charges that can be put forth. For example, if the police cannot prove conclusively that the defendant was the driver at the time of the accident, then the entire case may have to be thrown out. If all else fails, there is always the chance of a plea bargain to throw out some of the more serious charges and to potentially get less or no jail time.

A criminal conviction or criminal record has serious long-term consequences. After being accused of a crime, help should be sought out immediately to try and mitigate the penalties as much as possible.
