“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!!”

Two Decatur men face charges in alleged car scam

On Behalf of | May 13, 2013 | Criminal Defense |

Any time someone is charged will allegations of stealing property, a proper defense is needed. However, two Decatur men facing felony charges of stealing dozens of cars are likely going to need one of the strongest criminal defense teams possible.

According to the recent allegations, the two men stole dozens of vehicles. They would then go to junkyards to get vehicle identification numbers for the same types of cars they stole, put the numbers in the stolen vehicle, and bring the stolen vehicles to a recycler. The recyclers would run a search on the VIN number and then pay the men about $500 to $600 to recycle the stolen vehicles. According to police, every car that was allegedly targeted was over 12 years old, since these vehicles could be sold without a title. Although one of the men has been arrested for the alleged crime, police are still searching for the second suspect.

Whether charged with a misdemeanor or felony, a criminal conviction can have long-term consequences for a defendant. As such, it is best to get an attorney immediately and work out a proper criminal defense. Oftentimes, the defense will include a plea negotiation to either reduce criminal charges or even have the charges thrown out entirely. In addition, a plea bargain can be used to reduce penalties and any jail time. If a plea bargain is not accepted by either side, there are still plenty of defenses that can be put forth at a criminal trial such as mistaken identity, that the defendant was simply in the wrong place at the wrong time or some other applicable defense.

Dealing with criminal charges is not something to be taken lightly, no matter what they are. Seeking out help immediately is the best way to overcome any charges and minimize any long-term consequences.
