“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 accused of alleged fatal hit-and-run

On Behalf of | Apr 24, 2013 | Felonies |

Being accused of any type of crime involving a car accident should always be taken seriously. However, when the criminal charges include vehicular homicide as well as a DUI, the case is much more serious.

According to a recent report, an accident occurred on the South Marietta Parkway at approximately 5 a.m. on April 10 near Atlanta. The victim was allegedly hit from behind by a driver, and then the driver sped away. There was reportedly a tip, as well as evidence from the scene, that linked the suspect with the incident, however it was not immediately clear exactly what that evidence was. It is unknown who the tipster is or if there were any witnesses to the accident. The suspect has been charged with vehicular homicide, DUI and a hit-and-run, and he was being held in the Cobb County Jail.

Any time someone is facing allegations that include felony charges, they should be taken seriously. The penalties often include significant prison time and fines if the defendant is found guilty. As such, a proper criminal defense strategy needs to be planned out immediately, and the defendant should be sure not to say or do anything that could be incriminating. Some defense strategies could include attacking any evidence that was gathered from the investigation, particularly if the chain of custody is questionable for some reason. If the chain of custody was broken, there is a good chance any piece of evidence gathered cannot be used. This is one way to overcome a felony charge or multiple felonies, or at least a way to have the charges reduced.
